Built Environment Description 5

Walking around 14th Street NW and the neighborhood that surrounds it, its impossible to notice the amount of expensive-furniture stores, antique boutiques, flees market style shops, and the loads of trucks related to flooring companies, tile suppliers, and U-hauls. There is a clear movement on refurbishing and modernizing the city, for the more wealthier classes. The furniture stores I entered has sofas of up to $5,000, made by Italian Designers. Not your usual “Bob’s Furniture”; there is clearly a specific crowd being targeted and the consumer seems to be hip, modern, but most of all willing to spend big bucks.
