You Should Really Check Out West Elm’s New Pop-Up Shop (Pictures)

At 6,500 square feet, West Elm's second attempt at a retail space inside District lines (the brand closed its Metro Center location, now Forever21, in March 2010) certainly isn't sprawling. But we like it all the more for that. Boasting furniture more in tune with a hip Logan Circle apartment than a stuffy Kalorama mansion, it seems only fitting to cram the goods in a space that reflects the square footage of their actual customers' homes.  Check out our slideshow tour of the store, and head in soon if you like what you see. According to The Washington Post, West Elm is open to the option of sticking around, but only locked in for a six-month lease.   

West Elm
3333 M St., NW (Georgetown); 202-333-2928
Open Monday through Saturday 10 to 8, Sunday Noon to 6.
