Stephen Gambrel's first restaurant design.. Cole's NYC

Stephen Gambrel has ventured into commercial design with Cole's Resturaunt in Greenwich Village, NYC and I love the outcome photographed here by Adrian Wilson.  The Grey and yellow make a wonderful statement in the space along with the vintage mix.

Their site discribes it best:  Inspired by the artistic scene of 1950’s Greenwich Village, Steven Gambrel designed the 94-seat space to evoke the decade that earned the neighborhood the romantic reputation it has to this day. Each one of the intimate rooms has its own distinct feel, incorporating retro and contemporary design elements. Burlap panels in the Dining Room are the backdrop for the art provided by charity partner ACRIA (AIDS Community Research Initiative of America) as well as pieces from Swet’s own collection, ranging from ’50s-era sketches to ’90s street art. The Café, situated between The Bottle Room and the Dining Room, is lined with wooden plank booths ideal for groups while The Bottle Room offers seating at the bar and high tables, and is lined with amber-toned panels reminiscent of the warm hues emanated from light hitting a whiskey bottle.
