David Stark Pop-Up Shop

written by:

New York designer David Stark is the ne plus ultra of event planners: his creative empire employs a merry workshop of 30 craftsmen, set designers, and florists who can build out Stark's visionary themes to the tiniest specification. Now, Stark's attention to detail translates to the consumer market with a woodshop-themed pop-up shop in Nolita, open throughout February. Whimsical, funny, and clever, the 75 items for sale in the Haus Interiors space on Elizabeth Street range from useful (embroidered linen napkins, pocket pouches) to purely decorative (knitted facsimiles of axes and paint cans, an oversized pipe in a glass bell jar). Click through the slideshow for our sneak preview and chat with David Stark.

  Hand-turned poplar vases have a test tube inside to hold water. According to Stark, "My litmus test is, would I want it? Of course, I have weird taste."  Courtesy of: Susie Montagna

  The attention to detail is stunning and the shop is a blast to peruse. As for his choice in materials, Stark tells us, "It's hard to argue with wood."  Courtesy of: Kelsey Keith
