Front Studio designed the alteration of this luxury leffot men’s shoe store retail space in New York that began with an unusual idea for displaying shoes: a dining table. In the center of the space sits a hand crafted ash dining table. Hanging above the table is a chandelier delicately constructed as an organic metal bramble of branches.
A glossy ebony branch wallpaper pattern rises out of classic black painted wainscot panels. Various shades of inky blacks provide a dramatic backdrop to the modern white slip-covered furniture. The playful dialogue between modern and traditional effectively creates a bold yet serene backdrop for the main star: the shoes.
