Favorite Things: Home Rule Knows Design

The Logan Circle shop stocks stylish kitchen tools and table accessories.

It’s hard not to fantasize when you wander the aisles of a kitchen-supply store. But how often are you going to use those gleaming copper pots, panini presses, and Easter-egg-shape muffin tins? This Logan Circle emporium takes a more utilitarian approach while still keeping a keen eye out for the beautiful and stylish—hideaway spice racks, colorful salad spinners, Neoprene wine totes.

You’ll also find the makings of a beautiful modern table—espresso cups in every color, cookout-friendly melamine plates in pop-art patterns, and sleek serving plates.

Prices are lower than at most kitchen stores, and the snug space is so well-organized it’s worth checking out just to learn how to furnish a small room.
