Contemporary Brown Dining Area With Red Chairs at Il Corso Restaurant
Exposed ductwork and ceiling beams bring an industrial vibe to the main dining room at Il Corso. Dark red chairs surround each table with black and white linens, and globe-shaped pendant lights dangle above, adding a fun element to the design. Reclaimed wood flooring and natural stone walls complete the look.
The reception area showcases a hot rolled daybed with burlap mattress. Attached to this bed is a set of bookshelves that house several pieces of Han Dynasty pottery. On the wall above the daybed is a piece of artwork that adds a pop of color to an otherwise neutral space.
This installation of vintage Bracero hats hangs in the stairway between the first and second floor of a Mexican-inspired restaurant. The display, paired with a rustic wood dresser and mounted metal horse heads, creates an overwhelming sense of authenticity.
Contemporary Gray and White Office with Industrial Accents
Exposed pipes and a pair of metal chandeliers are industrial accents in this fresh and bright, contemporary office. Beautiful natural light combined with indoor palm trees brings a little bit of the natural world creating a lovely space to hold meetings.
To really catch the customer's eye, the owner's existing art piece was used as an inspiration for the color palette. Fun and vibrant wallpaper patterns are found throughout the store, and the shimmering gray wallpaper used behind the cashier area was actually used in the 60's.
Modern Stools and Bar Give Patrons a Place to Let Their Nails Dry
While patrons wait for their nails to dry, then can enjoy the views outside the Paintbar salon. A glass wall lets in plenty of natural light into the space and allows patrons to see outside the salon. A modern bench provides a place to dry wet nails, while modern stools give patrons placed to sit.
In this work area, designers continued the industrial design of the building by adding metal shelving to the back of the space and metal overhead lights to give staffers a more focused source of light. They even left the brick exposed, adding to the effect. To soften up the harshness of a truly industrial style, thought, designers added a brightly colored striped rug and other pops of color throughout the space.
The water feature provides a beautiful setting for the commissioned bronze sculpture, "Meadow." The water feature was a challenge because it had to be constructed in the middle of finished patios. The basalt pedestal had a concave and convex side, so late in the project the designer chose the concave side to bubble and the convex side to hold the sculpture.
A curved pergola creates a gateway from the entry garden to the lower chalet. To create the terraced area along the hillside, the designer removed roughly 350 yards of soil to start getting the correct grades and to devise a system of French drains at the office. A continuing challenge is the private utilities running between the two buildings.
Thoughtful accessories and artwork bring personality to this Mexican restaurant. Here, a wine glass display is topped with Mexican-inspired decor, ensuring the atmosphere is as authentic as the cuisine.
Conference Room with Large Concrete Tables and Antique Art Collection
In the conference room, a large concrete table adds texture to the space. Around it, rest six natural saddle cab arm chairs that add warmth to the space, but also provide a comfortable place for designers and clients to discuss ideas and close deals. Decorating the walls of this space, two 17th Century Portuguese paintings hang proudly on the white wall, while a 20th Century portrait adorns the exposed brick.
