The stylish Hoxton Hotel in Fulton Market is opening a pop-up market with the popular Danish design brand Hay throughout the holidays.
The pop-up, which had a soft opening on Monday, November 11, will feature trendy items from the store like the Sowden bottle, gold and silver kitchen sponges, colored glass straws, and the stackable Kaleido trays. Hay is known for its contemporary, thoughtful take on common household items and collaborations with notable designers.
Hay’s Lincoln Park store is its third U.S. location which opened in September. The husband-and-wife founders Rolf and Mette Hay admired Chicago’s reputation as a design city and manufacturing history.
Rolf told Curbed Chicago that he saw a lot of similarities between Chicago and Copenhagen, particularly the climate “so city dwellers crave furnishings and products to make their home feel warm and inviting.”
Do brightly colored toothbrushes on bathroom counter or neon, geometric kitchen towels hanging on the range make winter less dull? It appears to work for the Danes and is catching on for Americans, too.
The mini design shop adjacent to the lobby will usually be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. running until mid-February in part of the Hoxton’s new 24,000-square-foot coworking space. Everyone is welcome to shop, not just hotel guests or coworking members. The workspace, called Working From_, first opened in Chicago in November. Members work from a “place that feels like home” getting 24-hour access and all the perks of a hotel.
