A new Tysons Corner Center store is selling hand-crafted furniture and accessories for people decorating in a French Regency-style.
Tradition de France opened in November on the first level of the mall by Lord & Taylor and is the second location for the Alexandria-based, family-owned business, an employee told Tysons Reporter.
Raphael Botbol, the store’s manager, told Tysons Reporter that Tysons Corner Center has a broader range of shoppers and more foot traffic than nearby Tysons Galleria.
Botbol said he hopes that shoppers at Tysons Galleria’s high-end stores will come over to Tysons Corner Center to browse their selection of furniture and accessories.
Ultimately, the store hopes to cater to people who are looking for a “taste of luxury” offered at a variety of price points.
Accessories range from $30-$1,000, while the furniture ranges from $500-$8,000, the employee said. The store also sells paintings for $700-$1,000.
Some of the items shoppers can find in the store include a gilded sofa selling for $4,160, a 10-foot-long dining table for $7,590 that seats up to 12 people (chairs are sold separately) and colorful balloon accessories — one of them costs $30. There’s also a globe with an old map for $325.
Most of the furniture comes from Asia and Europe, Botbol said.
While it’s a small store, Botbol said that Tradition de France offers a larger selection of furniture — especially small tables — online. The website is currently getting updated and is expected to be back up in a few weeks, he added.
For shoppers interested in stopping by, the store is open during the mall’s regular business hours.
