New York, NY
This small New York restaurant is a home away from home, meant to feel like a comfortable apartment interior. The design draws on references to conventional home styling: the cushioned banquettes are the room’s sofas, the imprinted logo as wood inlays are tablecloths, and a ‘ladder to the attic’ adds whimsical structure to the space, separating front from back. The back bar’s cupboards evoke medicinal cabinets, which close during the day to keep the alcohol from site. The custom wall-paper and glow of the stripped custom lights above the bar add warmth to the space, as does the color palette of pistachio green, azure blue and white oak.
