From the November 2014 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Wide World of Wines (2201 Wisconsin Ave.) has a new owner—sort of. When longtime owner Elliott Staren decided to go into semi-retirement, he sold the fine-and-rare wine shop to Victor Hugo Linares, who has been working at the store for 25 years. The transfer of ownership is effective on November 1, we understand. Staren will continue to work at the store, though on a reduced schedule.

Yoga District is opening a “new little neighborhoody Glover Park street studio” at 2201 Wisconsin Ave. in May, according to the Georgetown Patch. The building is currently home to Hair Lounge Salon, Natuzzi Italia, and Ligne Roset.

The local five-studio chain offers affordable, community-based classes as well as a work-study program. From its website: “Each Yoga District studio is run by community members from the studio’s surrounding neighborhood. These community members volunteer 4 hours a week doing anything from providing legal advice to washing cups, from watering plants to signing in students. These volunteers are the backbone of Yoga District. They are a huge reason why Yoga District is able to offer yoga to DC for $10 or less for more than five years.” For more information on this program, visit yogadistrict.com.

European style returns to the former Mobili space at 2201 Wisconsin Ave. this Saturday, April 21, when Ligne Roset opens its doors. The French company designs and manufactures contemporary furniture and home accessories. As its corporate website states, “Ligne Roset is synonymous with modern luxury and invites customers to revel in a contemporary, design-forward lifestyle.”

Part of the former Mobili space is still being readied for Natuzzi Italia, a furniture boutique scheduled to open in mid-May, says Dani Rose, one of three co-owners of the two stores, which will share staff and a connecting passageway. The Natuzzi shop will be the first in the U.S. to offer an exclusive line of furniture, lighting, and other home accessories designed by the Italian firm Natuzzi, “the world leader in leather sofas,” Rose adds. “Whether you are in the market for architectural design (Ligne Roset) or everyday living (Natuzzi Italia), we have something for you.”

Along with Rose, the stores’ owners are David Zein, who has 20 years of interior design experience, and colleague Olivier Valette of Paris.

Ligne Roset will open at 10 a.m. on Tuesday through Saturday and at noon on Sundays. It will close at 8 p.m. on Thursday, at 5 p.m. on Sunday, and at 6 p.m. on its other opening days. The shop’s Monday hours will be by appointment only.
