Starting with a clean slate and an extraordinary view in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the design concept was to create a professional working environment with the feeling and comfort of being at home. The materials chosen were luxurious yet durable. The warm color pallet inspired by swirls of caramel and rich coffee.

The reception desk was built using natural onyx with integrated drawers and LED lighting which created a soft glow through the transparent areas of the stone.
The walls are finished with a Aijro Fanfare, an intricately hand inlaid wood veneer by Maya Romanoff.

The Conference room table was created by book matching two slabs of quartzite supported by custom made brushed stainless steel bases. The seating is the chic Herman Miller Sayl chair.

The wall texture is Flexi Mother of Pearl inlaid capiz shells in a chevron pattern by Maya Romanoff.
All millwork is custom made.

The executive desks are in natural walnut, the private office desk finish is zebra wood veneer aka Zebrano.
The accent wall is a faux finished crocodile texture which harmonizes well with the Zebrano pattern.

Pazzo Cucina Italiana Naples / Commercial Work

After 25 years, Pazzo! which is located on 5th Avenue South in the heart of upscale downtown Naples, Florida, needed an interior and exterior transformation.

The design concept was to bring a classy yet fun atmosphere with elements of excitement. We worked with a neutral base of rich brown woods and textured leather combined with luxurious velvets accentuated with a big pop of fucshia. The existing chair backs were covered in a variety of cut and crushed velvet fabrics ranging from geometric patterns to broad animal prints. Some existing features remained and were incorporated into the new design such as crystal wall sconces, iron gates and the copper bar top.

Every inch of the floor, walls and ceiling were renovated. Wood beams were added to the ceiling, the bar and other wood elements were sanded down and revived with rich brown stain colors and accentuated with gold, silver and lavender glazes. Wood details and appliqués were added to the bar and booth partitions. The textured plaster walls were also layered with gold, silver and lavender glazes. All of the walls were detailed with an artist’s touch and an antiqued mirror was placed in each booth.

The facade was updated with soft patina tones and a hint of cafe con leche. Decorative drapery was added to the sides of the outdoor dining area and multicolored umbrellas were placed over the dining tables by the street.

Pazzo received the dining award for best restaurant makeover.
