Shop and sip.

Imagine: You’re slowly sipping a glass of Sangiovese when you stumble on a beautiful ceramic bowl—the perfect thing for that corner of your kitchen shelf you’ve been struggling to style. At Fruitsuper‘s newest location in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood, which opened today, visitors can enjoy local wines as they browse through home goods, gourmet snacks, jewelry, and stationery from 80-plus independent designers. Sounds like a pretty ideal Friday night if you ask us.
This is the design studio’s second retail space, opened in partnership with wine purveyor Foundry Vineyards and designed to encourage a sense of community amid local artisans and design lovers. “We believe that small businesses are the heart and soul of neighborhoods, adding vibrancy and unique voices to pockets of cities,” says Fruitsuper cofounder Sallyann Corn.
With 1,200 square feet of space, the shop contains a wide array of both functional and purely decorative objects, like throw blankets and pillows from Slowdown Studio, pouches from Frankie & Coco, and, of course, Fruitsuper’s own line. You can drop by the store starting today, but if it’s far from your neck of the woods, shop our four favorite finds online:
The Plant Positioner
When your pothos is going haywire, use one of these twirly brass sticks to set it upright.
The Artsy, Earthy Bowl
Andrew Molleur’s ceramics are so pretty, you don’t even need to fill them up to keep them on the table. This hand-marbled dish is particularly captivating.
The Striking Server
Whether you have guests over or you simply want to eat breakfast in bed (no judgment!), Wolfum’s bright, geometric serving tray makes any meal feel like a special occasion.
The Terracotta Pot
Paper clips, rubber bands, bobby pins, buttons—there are all kinds of ephemera that you’d rather not keep out in the open. This horn-handle jar is a stylish solution.
