One Kings Lane Advises on Restaurant Décor
January 3, 2017,
NEW YORK—Since being acquired by Bed Bath & Beyond, One Kings Lane has been busy with a number of new projects, one of which has it extending into restaurant design and décor and another into video inspiration productions.
One Kings Lane decorated the lounge area of Loring Place’s private dining room.
Specifically, the online retailer has designed the private dining room at Dan Kluger’s new restaurant here, and produced videos with designers and influencers such as Garance Dore and Iris Apfel.
One Kings Lane worked with Kluger on a private dining room space as well as curated art throughout his new Loring Place restaurant. In a question-and-answer series on the website, Kluger described the restaurant atmosphere as “warm, comfortable, friendly, hospitable.” One standout feature is a steel and handblown glass pendant light in the stairwell of the restaurant that was made to resemble a tree, a nod to the park across the street.
The lounge area of the private dining room was designed by Nicole Fisher of One Kings Lane, who selected an 86-inch Topanger navy sofa, a black Mila coffee table from Mobital, a pair of Alka linen accent chairs, a pair of antelope fawn velvet pillows from Mike Seratt of The Prized Pig and a natural hair-on-hide from Saddlemans for the space. All of the pieces are available for sale at One Kings Lane.
“In talking with Nicole and [the One Kings Lane] team, we came up with the idea to create a lounge area and to try to make it a little bit of an extension of the home and play off this warm and comfortable mentality that we wanted to create,” Kluger said on the retailer’s website. “I think it’s really exciting that you can come and do dinner for 30 or 40 people, but start your night sitting on a couch with a drink in your hand while somebody passes you some hors d’oeuvres.”
One Kings Lane also debuted a video series, “A Visit With,” that kicked off during last month’s holidays and included influencers such as Iris Apfel, Putnam & Putnam, Pierre Frey and Garance Dore, who each offered lifestyle tips on varied subjects, including how to arrange a cheese plate or mix a particular cocktail.
