Floyd Detroit: Crankin’ Out Contemporary Furniture at Ponyride in Corktown

Floyd Detroit Utility Desk

Floyd Detroit creates essentials for the apartment and work space. They’re timeless pieces that require the most simple assembly you could imagine, plus the goods are designed and manufactured in Detroit and the Great Lakes Region.

Kyle Hoff & Alex O’Dell

The company was founded in 2013 by Kyle Hoff and Alex O’Dell. They work out of Ponyride, a nonprofit founded within a 30,000 square foot building in Detroit, committed to facilitating the growth of social missions within artists, entrepreneurs, makers, and nonprofits.
