Simply Soles

Boutique Shoe Retail — Washington, D.C.

With this fresh flagship boutique in the Washington, D.C. Columbia Height’s neighborhood, the once-catalogue-only SimplySoles made its transition to brick-and-mortar retail. The client desired an eco-friendly space that would feel as comfortable as her own home, while retaining an aesthetic to reinforce the upscale fashion brand for shoppers.

Using custom shelving and salvaged French doors, MGLM aesthetically and efficiently separated the showroom from the rear office and storage area. With rich, golden reclaimed oak flooring, antique Victorian furnishings, and a whimsical early 20th-century cash register, the space echoes the company’s own curated, timeless approach.
