I love finding and sharing great resources for home decor, furniture, and accessories, so when BoConcept reached out to me to come explore the newly-renovated store here in Georgetown, I jumped at the chance! Tim, the owner of the Georgetown store gave me a tour and explained the history of the company, along with a few of his favorite pieces. I think it’s safe to say that I found one of my favorite resources for client projects!
BoConcept is a Danish company founded in 1952 with a goal to produce functional and beautiful modern pieces for the home. It’s incredible to look back in time to see all of the different styles and how little they’ve changed today. The idea that things could be both beautiful and functional is something that surpasses time, and it was so awesome to see the two work together so seamlessly.
One of my favorite things that BoConcept offers is their living space offerings. As a designer in DC where most of my clients are short on space and need pieces to pull double-duty, I loved finding out about all of the pieces that offer storage or convert from sleek sofas to large sofa beds. And, everything is available in an array of upholstery!
Tim was more than happy to demonstrate how some of their most popular pieces work. Like I said, it’s so important here in DC to incorporate pieces that pull double duty in order to save space and can still accommodate for larger groups of people. Here’s Tim demonstrating the Rubi Adjustable Table– it doubles as both a coffee table and dining table! See how easily it folds down:
Most of their pieces have a sleek + modern Danish feel, and they even offer designs from the fabulous Danish designer Verner Panton.
Look at the lines on this fab armchair!
But the thing I was most pleasantly surprised with were the chic accessories- they have so many options that work in a variety of styles and aesthetics. I have been really into pottery lately, and BoConcept had an array of gorgeous pieces in colors that are so on-trend right now.
I took home a few of my favorite pieces so you can see how I would style them!
I am really digging this bleached coral color right now- don’t they look perfect on my fireplace?
How chic are these sculptural salt + pepper grinders?
For all of you DC residents, make sure to check out the newly-redesigned store in Georgetown (M St., next to Cady’s Alley). And for those of you outside of the District, checkout the entire online store!
