IT SOUNDS LIKE A DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENtial ticket, but Gore Dean is actually a Georgetown antiques and new home furnishings store that has just opened a branch in Mount Washington in the spot where Smith & Hawken was.
The location creates a striking showroom for the high-end furniture and decorative accessories, many of which are one of a kind. As you wander through the space, don't miss the antique jockey's weigh-in chair from Ascot ($16,500).
Co-owner Deborah Dean's own furniture designs are also featured, like the Marbury sofa ($5,995) with matching chairs. All are made in the U.S.
Not everything is so pricey. The beautiful Chelsea Bird dinnerware is $255 for a five-piece place setting. There are table and bed linens, mirrors, glassware, candles and stationery. Gore Dean also has a bridal registry.
