PROFILE : CHRISTOPHER REITER
Born to Austrian parents, Christopher Reiter graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in finance. His real education, however, came from the vast amount of time he and his friends spent pouring through hundreds of vintage items at San Diego's immense selection of swap meets, which are massive flea markets. Little did he know his weekend hobby would become his passion. In the mid-90's, Reiter quit his fund manager position in San Francisco and moved to Jakarta, Indonesia, where he eventually opened a home design boutique selling teak wood furniture.
Four years later, Reiter moved to Washington and opened Muleh, selling furniture, men's and women's clothing and artwork at locations in Bethesda and on 14th Street, N.W. Muleh's style is a mix of warm Asian design and western fashion, interpreted through clean lines and warm organic textures. These textures are integral to the materials, which include recycled teak, abaca rope and rattan.
Muleh is Javanese and means to “come home.” What made you
decide to make D.C. your home?
What do you miss most
What is the difference between contemporary and modern
What is the piece of furniture in your home that you most value?
Where do you shop for your clothing lines?
How would you describe your ultimate vacation?
What is something that people generally
don't know about you?
How would you
describe your personal
