When Vintage Meets Modern
What makes life in Old Town Alexandria so appealing is its preservation of history combined with its modern-day sense of community. The Kingsley stands as a perfect tribute to that combination. Behind its unique boutique personality is the concept of ‘when vintage meets modern’.
Outside, the architecture reflects the charm and grace of its historical surroundings. Inside, The Kingsley gets serious in terms of today’s high-tech demands. Common areas are designed with socializing in mind – for connecting not only with friends but with the world at large. Plug in, spread out, or simply wind down. Peruse a collection of vintage design books or engage in a friendly game of Monopoly. Whatever your choice, The Kingsley’s thoughtful décor encourages interaction and promotes a strong sense of community.
This notion of old and new is immediately visible from an aesthetic standpoint as well. Rustic colors and traditional styles blend with slick materials and contemporary shapes in a manner that aims to please. Original mid-century furniture pieces by Milo Baughman and Peter Danko sit side-by-side with Adirondack-style rocking chairs. Mix in custom pieces from The Kingsley’s design team utilizing locally sourced materials and the setting is complete. The end result is a forward-thinking space that is all at once distinctive – yet unpretentious and welcoming.
