Retro, vintage classic, industrial, mid-century—there are all kinds of influences in this 1,500-square-foot showroom that specializes in imported Scandinavian furniture. Currently, the hottest item is the stackable curved Dock Chair from Denmark’s Globe collection. It looks almost like a lawn chair with a walnut finish and oak and beech sides with stainless- steel legs. “From a side profile, you see light and dark, light and dark—a real sandwich effect,” says general manager Deirdre Jarvis. “We have architects in here wowing over the amazing construction and design.” Last November, Skypad designed and installed 185 cabinets for the boutique Hotel Rouge in Washington, D.C.
