A RESTAURANT IN HARLEM WHERE EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN.
by Pilar Viladas
We can all agree on the value of reuse, repurposing, recycling, upcycling. But too often in interior design projects, these processes are treated as ends rather than means, with results that are usually more earnest than elegant. At Vinateria, a Harlem restaurant that opened in April, almost every material has had a previous life (or lives), but that’s not what you notice about the room. Instead, you see a subtle layering of color and form and sophisticated details. Yes, the design is environmentally friendly. But above all, Vinatería is chic.
