The spring showhouse season will be here before we know, and it will kick off with the ninth annual DC Design House. This is Washington, DC’s premier design house which showcases the talents of the area’s foremost designers to benefit Children’s National Medical Center.
The showhouse will open April 13th and run through May 11th 2014. The house is located at 4600 Linnean Way, NW, Washington, DC 20008.
Built in 1929, the 2014 DC Design House is a six-bedroom, five-full and two-half bath estate with a three-car garage and pool situated on a two-third-acre homesite. The stone house offers three levels and approximately 7,929 square feet of living space for 24 designers to transform. The home includes original elements such as crown molding and wood flooring, as well as custom cabinetry in the living room and formal library. It has been in the Marshall B. Coyne family for more than six decades and is currently owned by his granddaughter, Suzi Wilczynski, president of Dig It! Games, which develops educational games for children. Coyne, founder of The Madison Hotel, was an avid collector of art, French furniture and historic documents, among other objects.

The Georgetown Jingle was created in 2006 by the Four Seasons Hotel and members of the Washington design community to raise critical revenue for the Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program at Georgetown University Hospital. Over the past six years, the Jingle has raised $1.5 million. This summer, construction will begin on the pediatric bone marrow transplant unit. This unit, in collaboration with Duke University Hospital and Jingle, will ensure that families receive the care they need close to home. The suites included in these units were created by three designers with the goal of having unique rooms that would ensure the elements of this space were nurturing and part of the healing process.

The importance of goods made in America has become more and more important lately as we are all adjusting to the changes in the world’s economies. In light of that, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the Manufacturing Institute are launching the inaugural Manufacturing Day on October 5 to promote awareness of American jobs across the field and across the country.
We have made our headquarters in Maryland since 1984, and have featured in some articles in Maryland publications. Eleanor McKay, co-founder of Niermann Weeks and wife of Joe Niermann, was recently interviewed by Nick Sohr of Maryland Biz News. She spoke about the history of Niermann Weeks, from our start in the garage behind the family home in Memphis, TN in 1978, to the projects we’re working on in our present day studios outside Annapolis, MD. The full article is on their website, and the video interview is available below.
The Capital newspaper of Annapolis, MD just ran an article on the wide variety of local manufacturers in our home Anne Arundel county and neighboring Queen Anne’s county. We are part of a wide range of hands-on makers of goods ranging from aprons by Mama’s Apron Strings to guitars by Paul Reed Smith to stainless steel toy rings by Kleynimals.
We are thrilled to see the renewed focus on American made products, and are proud to be have been part of that tradition for the last 34 years.
