The locally-owned furniture store specializes in small-scale furnishings specific to urban lifestyles. According to David Schaefer, founder and owner of Urban Essentials, the recent boom in apartment and condo developments along the 14th Street corridor continues to create a demand for smarter, sleeker and smaller-scale living ideas.

Urban Essentials‘ new location at 14th and Rhode Island NW was previously occupied by Reincarnations Furnishings. After 20 years, Reincarnations closed its doors this past spring, due to increased rent in the neighborhood.
