Restaurant Design: we are always looking at the interiors of homes but these days furnishings from our homes are popping up in restaurant design. Hospitality Design is a big business and it’s hard not to walk by an amazingly designed bar, lobby, hotel, or restaurant. Here are some very chic spaces to dine in from coast to coast:
L’Ardoise Bistro in San Francisco. Filled with Parisian touches like flea market lamps.
Edison Downtown is a 1920′s style speakeasy in downtown Los Angeles.
Faith & Whiskey is located in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago. The bar is a 50 foot copper topped bar with distressed black oak. The decorative light fixtures consists of backlit steer skulls, antler chandeliers, and a deer’s head covered entirely in silver ball bearings.
Located in Palo Alto (Northern California, Bay Area), Calafia is an 85-seat indoor/outdoor resto-market done in a rustic dairy-style with reclaimed wood ceilings and a chandelier made of old milk bottles!
(Unfortunately, I do not have all of the names of the designers who may be responsible for the interior design for the restaurants featured. If anyone has names or websites, I’d be happy to credit.)
