Since launching Housewright in 2018 as an offshoot of their Seattle-based architecture and interiors firm Hoedemaker Pfeiffer, architect Steve Hoedemaker and designer Tim Pfeiffer have shaped the Georgetown shop into a cherished destination for art, design and home decor. A treasure box of vintage, found and artisan-made wares sourced from Pfeiffer’s world travels, Housewright keeps design lovers coming back with an ever-evolving collection that promises discoveries galore. Having recently added a rotating gallery space, and with several new collections on deck, Pfeiffer reveals what’s on the horizon for Housewright.

Tell us about your latest expansion. The gallery space was created to showcase our new—and exclusive in the Northwest—furniture collections by Alfredo Paredes and Natan Moss, along with our Housewright-designed label. We can also show larger-format art exhibitions and continue highlighting our beloved Northwest-focused artists.

You recently launched the Housewright Pillow Collection. Why did you decide to create your own line? Influenced by my background in fashion, I was inspired to design the pillow collection with a strong seasonal and storytelling point of view. We dug into our fabric archives for vintage and special pieces we’ve collected on our travels through the years and had a lot of fun mixing pattern and texture, in some cases highlighting the fabric’s selvage edge or revealing exposed closures. Each pillow is unique and special.

What do you hope Housewright visitors will experience? We want people to feel at home, and we hope to pique and inspire their curiosity. The greatest compliment is when we hear someone is excited to find us in Seattle. We want to be part of their story, whether it’s new design inspiration or discovering the perfect find.
