The founders of Environment Furniture have announced Shelter Half, a new made-in-america brand collective. Founded on the principles of conscious commerce, collaboration, and American-made products, Shelter Half features a curated collection of brands, artists and craftsmen and opened on December 8, 2011 and runs through February 28, 2012.
The shop was named after two symbols of collective action: the shelter canvases soldiers team up to make into a tent and the famous Tacoma coffeehouse, founded in 1968, where civilians and soldiers came together over cheap dinners and lively conversation. In this spirit, Shelter Half is part showroom, part salon. A place for both shopping and lounging, the pop-up space has a coffee corner and will host open-to-the-public events like movie and music nights, cooking showcases, roundtables and more. Products range from fashion to photography and ceramics to books, and each vendor/designer interacts with the space in their own creative ways.
