Thursday evening, Washington Fine Properties (WFP) and DC Modern Luxury hosted a rooftop cocktail party at Room & Board to kick off a weekend celebration of fine design and home furnishings.

With its wraparound deck on the top floor of its showroom, Room & Board was the perfect spot from which to view the dazzling and ever growing business and residential landscape that is 14th and U Street Corridors. If the space seemed enormous, it's because this  four-floor modern furniture and accessories store is in the restored  R.L. Taylor Building, formerly a 1919 Ford Motors showroom!
