101 King Street
Alexandria, VA 22314

About Darota & Jerzy:
Both Darota and her husband Jerzy have a background in working with furniture, but now Darota does it full time in Conrad’s Furniture Gallery, while Jerzy helps out when he gets time away from his construction business.  Jerzy has been running this business for the past 20 years in DC, MD and VA.  Before starting his construction business, Jerzy worked in Hamburg, Germany at an antique shop restoring and selling furniture.  On the other hand, Darota has been an interior decorator for the past 10 years and continues to do so through Conrad’s.

About Conrad’s:
Conrad’s is a high end furniture store that also provides professional interior designers for your home.  “We have the most beautiful furniture in the area,” says Darota.  They carry top of the line Italian and Belgian furniture and are very proud of their American brands as well.  They do not sell antiques, but traditional, transitional and contemporary pieces.  “Also, we provide free consultation services for interior design,” says Darota.

Business Philosophy:
Conrad’s prides themselves on carrying high quality furniture with very reasonable prices.  “We provide the best service and trust for our customers,” says Darota. 

Why did you choose to do this?
“Other people discovered my talent.  When I was in high school I had friends that saw my talent in design and they pushed me to pursue it,” says Darota.  After working in interior design for the last 10 years, Darota and Jerzy decided that it was time to open up a shop.  

Why Alexandria?
“We really like the community in Alexandria and it’s a great location,” says Darota.  “I have known the building for a long time and have had my eye on it,” says Jerzy.

Funny Story:
“Our best salesman in the show room is our son, Conrad, who the store is names after.  His favorite thing to sell in the store are recliners,” says Jerzy.  Conrad will be 7 soon.
