Equal parts design laboratory and retail gallery, David Bell Antiques has been a spectacular source for extraordinary furniture and accents in the Washington, DC area for almost two decades. “If it would not pass the front door of our own homes,” say David Bell and business partner Tom Preston, who met in art school, “it doesn’t make it to the gallery floor.” The inventory, an ever-evolving mélange of modern and antique, is characterized by the pair’s passion for superlative design, tactile, luxurious materials, and strong sculptural form.
