If you’re familiar with co-working/social spot The Wing, you know its mission is to empower women through “professional, civic, social, and economic advancement of women.” But if you don’t live in New York, you haven’t been able to truly take advantage of the ultra-cool, mid-century-glam space for events, working, and networking — until now, that is. The Wing opened its first branch outside of NY earlier this month, and can we just say, it is freaking magical. Replete with on-trend pastels and some truly stellar wallpaper, the Wing D.C. is every bit as delightful as its New York counterparts. And we’re stealing more than a few of their design choices for ourselves. It’s all in the spirit of collaboration, girls!
A perfect mix of comfy and functional seating areas makes this space really work. We’d love to trade industry tips from one of these plush red chairs.
The color-blocked lending library features more than 2,000 titles by female authors, spanning all genres and publication dates. (Sooooo, how do we get a library card?)
Yep, that’s the custom-designed wallpaper that adorns the space. Created by Joana Avillez and Payton Turner, it features busts of historic heroines who fought for progress and change.
A key thing that sets The Wing apart from most co-working spaces is their “beauty room,” a ladies’ lounge so chic that you might just allow yourself a midday primp. Beats throwing elbows at your gym’s single mirror, right?
The showers feel more like a luxe spa. We’re obsessed with the retro-atomic mirror.
Every #girlboss needs her coffee. The Perch offers drinks and snacks in partnership with local women-owned businesses to help you get through your day. (And it transitions to serving cocktails at night.) Meanwhile, you’ll be transitioning to remodeling your kitchen in the spitting image of this cute little corner.
We love how the pastel tones inside mimic the historic Georgetown rowhouses that can be spotted through the windows. The building itself is historic, too: It was once home to the first all-female architecture firm, which helped shape the city of D.C. as it stands today. How’s that for legacy?
