Trohv: Ecclectic Home And Gift Store In Hampden

Trohv, formerly, known as Red Tree, is located on 36th, one of Hampden’s busiest streets. The store name was taken from the word trove, which means a collection of found objects. In response to growing customer demand, Trohv opened its second store in Washington DC this past March.

Trohv has such a large variety of goods and styles that using one word to describe the store does not do it justice, and would not embody its essence. It is a mix of urban, retro, modern, eco friendly and vintage goods, ranging from furniture, to textile, to jewelry, to kids items. Goods from renowned designers like Jonathan Adler’s ceramics and tableware, Thomas Paul’s pillows and textiles, John Robshaw bedding are featured throughout the store, as well as goods from local artists. The upper level is mainly for holiday decoration, home accessories, jewelry, clothing accessories, and kids items, while the lower level, which is arranged and coordinated by room, features most of the furniture, kitchen and bedroom items. I was very inspired by the kitchen. I loved the green colander pendants, but most of all I loved the yellow painted wooden spoon display on the dark green wall. That brings me to another reason why this store is worth visiting. If you are not planning to buy anything or if you do not find what you want, you will come out of the store feeling inspired by the displays and the design of the interior.

Many items are what I call one of a kind, so if you are looking to make someone feel special you will have no problem finding a unique gift in their eccentric selection.  Have you ever browsed the Internet and stumbled upon quirky goods? You see it online, you think it is cool but you would rather see it first before buying it. Well there is a good chance that Trohv has it. Stop by the store and take your time to look around, there is certainly a lot to see, and enough helpful staff who will assist you find what you need.
