Tysons, VA

Longtime Vienna furniture retailer Posh! has reopened in Vienna after closing its Maple Avenue location.

The store moved in September to 200 Dominion Road NE — just a short drive from its previous location (419 E. Maple Avenue). Owner Mary Anne Antonides is also considering expanding to another location in McLean, although she wasn’t sure when that might happen.

The new spot previously was a design studio for Antonides, but was not always open to the public, like it is today.

Posh! has resided in the building for 27 years in one capacity or another, Antonides said, adding that repurposing the location allows them to expand their “entrepreneurial opportunities.”

Currently, the shop is running a pre-Christmas sale that gives customers a 20% discount on Christmas items and custom floral arrangement and 30% off everything else in the store as a “thank you” to customers who followed Posh! to its new location.

The hours of operation are Mondays-Tuesdays from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and Thursday-Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. The shop is closed on Wednesdays and Sundays.
