First Look: RCKNDY
Comments () | Published June 20, 2007

David Dennis chose the name RCKNDY (pronounced “rock candy”) for his new home-decor boutique on U Street for a handful of reasons. Like the pieces he handpicks for the store, “rock candy is sort of old-fashioned but has a modern flair,” he says. “It comes in bright colors, great flavors, and has all kinds of angles and shapes.” Plus, taking out the vowels is as playful as the store’s contemporary furniture and accessories.

The 1,800-square-foot showroom is stocked with pieces by local, national, and international designers including XYdecor, Orange 22, MoxBox, PlushLiving, Blu Dot, Mint, and Mud Australia. In addition to furniture, RCKNDY sells tableware, lighting, candles, pillows, picture frames, clocks, and more. A bonus for apartment-dwellers: Dennis keeps an eye out for furniture that is the right scale to fit a one- or two-bedroom apartment.
