Nuvrei - big taste in a small space

We have been hustling and bustling since the retail studio opened last April, and all the hustling has created quite a few projects to share (so here it goes!):

We recently had the opportunity to work with Nuvrei (Yumm!) on the interior design for their first Patisserie and Cafe retail location in Portland, OR. They were looking for a modern, yet warm and approachable interior that really highlighted their product. They had a lot to fit into a small space, but we always enjoy a design challenge! (see project photo gallery here)

We decided to keep the palette simple and work with the natural characteristics of the space (brick walls, wood ceiling) and used those textures to contrast with some of the more modern elements. To bring in some of the french flair (which Nuvrei is known for), we selected the Marais chair in a bright yellow - which is a classic french industrial design, and industrial inspired pendants. We hope you enjoy!
