With a limited time frame and budget we created a simple but effective redesign of Wildwood restaurant. Our goal was to simplify the surroundings and bring the focus on the food. We chose a warm dark grey for the walls and ceilings which helps to soften the angles of the soffits and camouflage the visible ductwork. We chose the same color for the new upholstery. A custom walnut bench provides seating at the entry and the same wood is echoed in the new hostess stand and comfortable curvy bar stools. The main new decorative element is the lighting, which is handmade pottery. Each piece is different and casts it’s own playful shadows on the otherwise simple space.
