In 1998 Phyllis opened Maison Felice/Phyllis Washington Antiques in Palm Desert, CA , the culmination of her love for antiques, travel and interior design. Today, Phyllis Washington Antiques with over 25,000 square feet of beautiful objects and furnishing from 18th century to Art Deco, is a destination for many top west coast designers. Her design career has spanned a wide range of projects including residences, yachts, private trains and aircraft. Through membership in the Institute of Classical Architecture, the French Heritage Society and the Royal Oak Foundation, Phyllis indulges her obsession for "life-long learning" through travel, seminars and lectures to broaden her knowledge.
Besides being a knowledgable antiquarian, Phyllis is an ardent philanthropist, having founded the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation with her husband in 1988. With the mission of "Investing in people to improve the quality of their lives", the Foundation has a primary focus on youth and has provided hundreds of scholarships for higher education.
