Bringing Design to Life: Niermann Weeks Furniture
As the overall look and feel of the 2017 DC Design House Living Room starts to come together, we wanted to give you a special glimpse into the furnishings that are bringing the space to life.
Selecting the handmade work of Niermann Weeks was an obvious choice when considering the overall look and feel of the Living Room. The designs of this family-owned business “borrow elements from the past and reinterpret them to fit current lifestyles, aesthetically relating to both traditional and contemporary interiors.” A perfect fit for a home as stately as the 2017 DC Design House.
The Tissage Table is a glamorous twist on an old theme, and a well-suited addition to the Living Room’s center. The interwoven metal curves create a sculptural center point that provides an airy and elegant feel to the table’s floating glass top.
Hanging from the soft purple hued ceiling is the striking Monaco Chandelier. The airy lighting fixture has a metal foundation that is overlaid with an antiqued mirror panels and Venetian silver leaf.

The Balmain Table is the result of dozens of sketches trying to combine geometry with the suggestion of restrained energy waiting to burst forth. Finished in ebonized cherry and accented with tarnished gold, this table is at home in any room.
Set between expansive floor to ceiling French doors is the Toulon Settee inspired by European campaign furniture. It features details like faux wheeled feet and plush cushions. The steel finish resembles stripped and weathered iron, to which contrasting gold leaf accents were added.
