Quarry Springs' imminent opening, B&B Italia celebrates its 40th anniversary, and more home-related news.
Quarry Springs is Almost Open
Offering the ultimate in luxury and location, Quarry Springs—Bethesda’s newest high-end condominium development—is one step closer to fruition with the opening of its first model unit. With two- and three-bedroom floor plans, ranging from 2,200 to nearly 5,000 square feet, the well-appointed condos feature garage-to-foyer elevators, 10-foot ceilings, gas fireplaces, and spa bathrooms. The model debuted just months after the unveiling of the 6,000-square-foot Club House, complete with a library, a grand salon, a lounge, well-manicured outdoor spaces, and an expansive fitness center. Presales for the property, which is slated for a fourth-quarter opening, have started at $1.8 million. 8101 River Road, Bethesda, 202-302-2508
Hermès' New Porcelain Dinner Service
Voyage en Ikat bread and butter plate, Hermès ($230)
Inspired by the fine dyeing and weaving techniques of ikat fabric, the new Voyage en Ikat collection from Hermès features a complete porcelain dinner service in saturated, intertwined shades of emerald, ruby, and sapphire. In homage to the journey such designs took along the Silk Road, the collection draws upon eclectic sources— Japanese motifs, Byzantine patterns, even 18th-century French exoticism—and its pieces are trimmed in 24k matte gold for a finish befitting royalty.
