AT DC: Rckndy - "Sweet Decor" in the U Street Corridor

This is from DC finalist, Rachael. Comment away!


Rckndy (pronounced Rock Candy) offers quirky but practical home decor for small spaces. Although handguns are banned in DC (for now), you can buy ceramic 3-gun vases, single pistol wall vases and surprisingly pleasant smelling Gunpowder Green Tea Candles by Joya and ceramic designer Sarah Cihat...


If you would rather hide from than decorate with guns, disguise yourself in a self-portrait mirror like the pirate mirror, which has cut-outs to give your reflection an eye-patch and shoulder parrot. Also humorous is this little boy lamp with strategically placed switch - a reportedly popular item with couples expecting baby boys. On the softer side, Rckndy stocks a wide array of pillows, including the Thomas Paul line and this comfortable AU sleeper sofa available in 5 different sizes and various colors.

More must-see in-store items:

- Clearance items, like these wood end tables (hugely discounted).
- A vintage train car to maximize space, perhaps in an entryway or a
large closet.
- The hot pink cabinet behind the register holding large bowls of
candy including, of course, rock candy.
