Recently featured in Stamford Magazine as The Gold Coast winner for best Italian restaurant.
A popular, local restaurant in Stamford, CT was seeking a renovation and interior design of its space. Its outdated interiors no longer stood the test of time or gave justice to its reputable menu. The owners were seeking a fresh, contemporary and warm look to give the feeling of a comfortable trattoria to attract new customers while retaining current clientele.
Warmer colors, wood flooring and new furnishings were used with the striking contrast of a dark ceiling. The wall between the porch and dining room was opened up to create a continuous flow of the space. To create a wine bar/trattoria feeling, wooden wine crates were used for the front façade of the bar and the crates line one wall with wine bottles. Original photographs and objects from the owners' native Italian town were organized to be thoughtfully displayed throughout the space to show their history.
We also designed the restaurant’s website to communicate the experience of the new space. Crowds now line up to score a table — the restaurant has an incredible following and doubled its business in one year.
