Arguably the chicest neighborhood in Washington, DC, Logan Circle is known for Victorian homes, hip eateries, and home decor stores to die for-including Saatva’s newest retail location.
Popular amongst young families and fun-loving professionals, whether you live around the corner or are traveling for work or pleasure, 14th St is well worth exploring.
“14th St is really a mecca of culture,” says Jay Monchais, Viewing Room Manager of Saatva Washington DC. “There are so many design and furniture stores up and down the street as well as small boutique shops you can pop into and have a great conversation with different people and hear their stories.”
So grab a lavender-infused iced latte, pick out your new Saatva mattress, and peruse the area’s best shops, restaurants, and hotels.
