About David Bell Antiques

Equal parts design laboratory and retail gallery, David Bell Antiques has been a Washington, D.C. go-to source for exquisite furniture, objects, and style for almost 20 years. "If it would not pass the front door of our own homes, it doesn't make it to the gallery floor,” say David Bell and business partner Tom Preston, who met in art school.
