Claudia + Harry Washington

 Claudia + Harry Washington are 2 designers out of my parents home town San Salvador, El Salvador. They met while attending the University of Applied Arts in San Salvador for degrees in Interior Design. Due Estudio has designed commercial, residential spaces and furniture design. Check out their awesome home in El Salvador.

My parents always talk about how they would love to go back and purchase a home so that they may be close to their family. I love their style as it is contemporary yet true to its culture latina. 

This is Qumbo a super cool shop that Due Estudio designed. Can't wait to go back to visit so that I may check out this shop!

Due Estudio has also designed a Hush Puppies store out in El Salvador. I love the look and feel of this store. 

 Claudia + Harry have designed some amazing pieces for Bernhardt Design and these are just a few!

My parents left El Salvador 27 years ago due to the civil war. My father and mother were very concerned for their safety and so the came to the United States. They left behind all their family and friends because they wanted to start a family and fleeing was the only option as my father was a lieutenant for the Salvadoran army. Our country suffered for so many years and so the fact that there are emerging designers and artists coming to the horizon brings a smile to my heart. We all can't wait to go back to visit, and I myself to take a look at what El Salvador has to offer in the design community.
Que nuestro pais prosperar.
