Clestra Hauserman, for decades the leader in office fronts and glass door systems, has introduced a customizable collaborative teaming product - Irys.

Country Floors, a division of Marble Systems, offers the TEMPLE BRICK line, a product that is actually made locally in Chantilly, VA.

Large format tiles these days are now commonly available in sizes of 4x8' and larger... and they are becoming incredibly realistic as a stone mimic, and outight cool when going abstract. 

The tiles above happen happen to be from the PLANE series by STONEPEAK, and the  3x3' samples are at the RESOURCE STUDIO if you want to take a look in person.  There are however, beautiful products from other groups, including LAMINAM from Crossville, SLIM SLAB from Architectural Ceramics, and SLIMLITE from Daltile.


Maharam has introduced a rug collection that has truly unique elements, that we have never seen before.  Though we have included a couple of pictures, the scale of some of the loops and textures truly have to be seen in person to be appreciated.

In the DC area your local Maharam reps will be able to show you samples, or you can stop by the Resource Studio to see the selection of samples that we have on hand.

THE RESOURCE STUDIO will be closed on  Wednesday, November 26, Thursday, November 27 and on Friday, November 28 to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday.

It is with sincerest gratitude that we thank all of our clients. It is a privilege to work with you.
For your assistance, we will be available by email:,

Happy Thanksgiving from Adrian, Candace, Iris, Jan, Lynne

With the passing of the design icon, Maya Romanoff, in January of this year; there is a chance to revist his legacy with a presentation and dicussion with Joyce Romanoff at the Donghia Showroom - Wednesday, April 16th.  Those wishing to attend need to RSVP to the showroom manager, Yoshi Monterio via e-mail. at

These stunningly simple multi-use stools are one of those rare products that demonstrates fun and functional design - and is actually affordable!  Even more rare, is that they are made in the USA  by GO.LO.GOR.SKY STUDIO.  The cost of the product is $149, and it is well worth checking out their website to see alternate use of the stool as an occasional table, book cubbie, and perfect addition to any child care environment.  


  OK... it is not an actual product, but I wanted a loud place to let folks know about a presentation being provided by National Office.  It's something we are all going to be dealing with soon, so getting informed, and getting those hard to obtain LEED CEU credits seemed to make this little shout out to be worth it.  Details are as follow:

This course will provide an update of the development process, and a general overview of the technical changes.  It will also include an early look at supporting tools and resources for the LEED v4 program.
