The Candle Bar is both a gift retailer, candle making workshop and creative gathering space. The L-shaped tenant buildout within the East Nashville WeWork building greets guests with ready for purchase retail followed by the maker space. Details were highly considered throughout the space to bring attention to the candle making process.
Exposed raw concrete walls display the hanging workshop smocks. Custom millwork shelving is throughout with integrated shelving along the wall boasting movable display boxes to highlight featured items. The quartz hospitality counter has waterfall edges, tongue and groove wood planking and angularly oriented panels to create visual interest similar to the textured patterning of the Paddywax candle vessels. Custom powder coated steel nesting tables sit on casters with ashwood tops to allow for flexible displays. The custom workshop table, also made from powder coated steel on casters, supports an inset glass top. The brass lighting atop the workshop mimics the match stick, another nod to the candle making process. Other items such as the workshop stools and nesting tables were sourced.
