Recent Projects:

Beverly Hills - USA

Gratitude Beverly Hills is the upscale iteration of its iconic sister restaurant, Café Gratitude, offering gourmet plant based cuisine.

The interior design of the 3675 square foot restaurant was overseen by Wendy Haworth Design. The new restaurant’s bow and truss ceilings define the light and bright space that is dotted with light oak tables and fabric covered banquettes. Perfectly stylish patterns can be seen throughout the restaurant with an untraditional chevron floor that runs into handmade Zellig terracotta tiles imported from Morocco, which line the face of the bar.

Two of Mokum's popular fabrics feature in this project - Isola colour Slate on the bar stools and Madura colour Sand on outdoor banquette seating and pillows.

The Fox Bar & Cocktail Club
Nashville - USA

1767 Designs worked alongside the owners of The Fox Bar & Cocktail Club to design and build their new space in East Nashville.

The idea was to create a cozy, laid-back cocktail bar that resembled a speakeasy, only in its Art Deco style, but otherwise maintaining a modern feel and attitude that's unique to Nashville.

The finished product is a darker, moodier take on Art Deco, with low lighting against limewashed black walls, velvet booths and vintage leather chairs flanked by custom bookshelves. Finishing touches include a cut brass wall partition, a 1920s pressed tin ceiling and antique doors pulled from old houses being torn down in Nashville.

Cabaret wallpaper by Catherine Martin by Mokum features in the bar's luxurious powder room.

Wellington - New Zealand

Space Studio has recently completed the interior fit-out of the newly opened Sofitel Wellington – a $50 million, 130-room hotel.

Sofitel is a premium hotel brand for the French company Accor. The project was envisioned as a 5 Star Sofitel hotel and to this end the design had to reflect the Sofitel brand parameters.

Space Studio's vision for the design was to leverage on the beautiful surrounds of the botanic gardens and Wellington’s heritage creating a vibrant, colourful, eclectic warm environment that met the Accor standards for Sofitel.

A number of James Dunlop and Mokum fabrics were used throughout the project - specifically on chairs, sofas, headboards and accessories. The colour and pattern offering in James Dunlop Textiles range of fabrics were particularly suitable to the theme and worked beautifully to craft a luxurious experience which is what Space Studio wanted to achieve. The fusion of colour and pattern is seen as you transition through various spaces linking in the botanic inspiration.

Speaking to what guests are looking for in luxury hotels today, Sofitel Wellington is unique, boutique and offers a level of luxury not previously prevalent in the Wellington market.
