About Us

Foundry features an eclectic mix of furnishings, from vintage to modern, from industrial bookshelves to French buffets, and from small quirky findings to large statement pieces. You never know what you’ll find… you may see hand-painted chests sitting alongside linen-and-burlap armchairs and industrial stools. Vintage theater lights hang alongside oil canvases and time-worn maps. What they all have in common is that each has a unique story, which owner Yvette Freeman is happy to tell. 

Our shop is restocked and restyled daily, so even our most loyal customers will always find something new with every visit!

Meet the team

For more than twenty years, Yvette Freeman has been designing and building award-winning, luxurious, and unique spaces in the District of Columbia and across the Southeast. This passion has taken her around the country and throughout Europe rummaging through barns, warehouses, flea markets, and estate sales. Along the way, she’s reclaimed materials, furniture and home décor — some centuries old — to incorporate into her distinctive, contemporary designs. Yvette’s two-decade obsession has become more than a personal hobby. It’s a story of professional excellence and commitment to the preservation and repurposing of some of the most magnificent mixed-use and single-family homes ever built. If you ask Yvette she will tell you that every piece has a story and you should collect what you love, if you do that, you’ll never go wrong.

Nicki is a proud mother of 3 amazing children that are pretty much her world. In her free time she loves restoring antique furniture and spending time at the beach. She has been working at Foundry for the past eight months and loves her job and enjoys meeting all of the wonderful Foundry customers.


Sarah was born and raised in Oak Hill, Virginia and is now a resident of Lucketts, Virginia with her husband and two dogs. She’s gone from being taken to antique stores as a little kid to now having her own passion for the hunt. When she’s not at Foundry or working her full-time job as a social worker, Sarah spends her spare time at auctions or picking through flea markets to find the perfect treasures. She particularly loves vintage industrial pieces, old cameras, and anything dog related.


Summer is Nicki’s oldest daughter and loves working at Foundry. She has a passion for great vintage finds and working with all customers. When not at Foundry, Summer is working on classes towards her masters and enjoys spending time at the beach and riding her horse in her free time.


Karen is a Virginia transplant of ten years. She's a single momma to five, a fine arts major and loves all things design! You can describer her as a paint nerd, flea market goer, wood worker, power tool owner, and house re-doer. She is excited to be part of the Foundry crew!
