Theo and Paul Stewart-Stand
Stewart/Stand is a Brooklyn-based product design company, distributor, manufacturer and retailer dedicated to reinventing mens gifts, furniture and other functional design objects. Since 2002, Stewart/Stand has been producing design solutions that are simple and innovative. The store, located in D.U.M.B.O. Brooklyn, carries the Stewart/ Stand brand, as well as an assortment of items from indie and mainstream designers worldwide, all chosen with the same mix of practicality, style and forward thought.
Whether you are visiting New York City or live there, the DUMBO section of Brooklyn is a charming area where you could spend the day checking out the stores, having a meal or just checking out the view. The Stewart/Stand Design Store fits right into the area with its brand of chic, playful, and functional home accessories. Items for the home are carefully selected by the members of this family run business, which started out as a design firm. In 2002, brothers Theo and Paul Stewart-Stand began the company with their own line of stylish men's accessories. With the success of their products and the help of Penelope Mahot (wife of Theo), in 2007, they opened a showroom and quickly expanded to carry other lines as well as their own.
From brightly colored kitchen accessories, including trivets, teapots and timers, to bold wall clocks and whimsical mobiles, all of the items they carry are lovingly chosen with an eye for quality, function and design. From their website:
