During the spring of 1989 Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams set out to create a company with a spirit, enthusiasm and mindset that would allow them to venture into new territories for the furniture business.
Though Bob Williams has always been an intricate part of The Mitchell Gold Company since its creation in 1989 it was at on the occasion of the company's "Sweet 16" party at the bi-annual High Point Furniture Market that an announcement was made, in April 2005, effective immediately, it would be known as Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams.
The diverse yet synergistic management team of Mitchell Gold, President, and Bob Williams, Executive Vice President and Director of Design, has a unique philosophy - keep the customer in focus at all times.
Slated to open in April 2007, Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams Furniture will launch its first store in the WDC area, in the former Storehouse location near Logan Circle in Northwest. Storehouse had been a major customer of Gold + Williams until its September 2006 liquidation.
No doubt, and in a similar way that I documented Storehouse at 1526 14th Street and other furniture stores in the 14th Street Historic District I will also photograph the windows and perhaps interior of MG & BW Furniture Store.
