ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Acme Mid-Century & Modern

Acme’s the place for classic Nelson bubble lamps and Eames chairs, but owner Pierre Paret also sells lesser-known names, such as ’70s-era suspension chairs by Odd Knutsen and sculptor Mark Leary’s Calder-like mobiles. Our favorite: custom portraits of your dog alongside a classic midcentury chair of your choosing, by Belgian artist David Cumps. 128 S. Royal St.; 703-836-0333.


This chic little emporium is a destination for beauty brands that are otherwise hard to find. Manager Elizabeth Whitcomb’s current obsessions include Maya Chia face oils, the Alchimie Forever skin-care line, and makeup by Rouge Bunny Rouge. Mothers of young beauty mavens will appreciate the shelf of birthday-party supplies. 1000 King St.; 703-299-9652.
