Steadfast Supply

Steadfast Supply, a pop-up retail, co-working, and events space, finally opened in southeast DC last week. The brands and companies currently featured include Matine, DeNada Design, Printed Wild, Marcella Kriebel, Be Clean, Harper Macaw Chocolates, Kelly Towles, and more. The project took many months to organize, and I got involved in the last two of those months. I helped Nathan of Nh.d Studio create the fixture package for the space. That means anything that is displaying a product or acting as a work surface is an element that I touched in some way.

I enjoyed working on Steadfast with Nathan. Nathan did almost all of the building, while I focused mainly on finishing and painting. While he had a solid vision of the space, he was open to collaborative discussions and decisions about certain elements of the design. There was some fluidity to the process, and I appreciated being able to use my design brain a bit. 

I also became a total Frog Tape convert. Sorry, blue tape. Just check out the crispness of the lines on those fixtures and you'll see what I mean.

My favorite pieces in the space are the angular wooden pendant lights that Nathan created. I love how that design element repeats in the cash wrap. I also love the white-dipped circular tables with the copper hairpin legs. I kind of want one for myself...

Steadfast Supply is only open until the end of December, so make sure you stop by before it goes away! It is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10-6 at Arris DC.
