Traditionally, there were no walls in Japanese restaurants and homes to showcase art, so the sliding fusuma screens also serve as vehicles for creativity. As does Yawata’s playful approach for the designs—imagine a man tucking into lotus root with flames growing out of his bald head—which takes nods from street art. “Normally these images are painted onto special paper, but Maile was concerned about it holding up so she handpainted onto Tyvex; it’s high performance but still has the Japanese twist of reverence for paper,” Tsuji says. Inside the dining room, Yawata’s original paintings grace panels, too, complementing the use of recycled fir and floor lamps, symbolic of lighting that “warms the space in a Japanese way,” adds Tsuji. adds texture and connects with other parts of the restaurant. “It is an extension of the bar ceiling and the cypress beams in the market and expo kitchen spaces, but the space is much darker and moodier,” White notes.

Private Dining by Sepia
For the new Private Dining by Sepia venue, located in a building adjacent to chef Andrew Zimmerman’s Chicago restaurant, Sepia, local firm Gary Lee Partners also sought to establish a sense of connectedness between the spaces. “The design is inspired by and derivative of Sepia’s smoky vintagemeets-modern interior. Just as we had done with the original restaurant, we selected deep, neutral tones and anchored the space with signature sculptural light fixtures (by Tony Duquette) to create an inviting and memorable atmosphere,” says design director Donna Corbat. “The palette is warm with subtle color and texture gradations.” Owner Emmanuel Nony has also instilled a sense of history into the venue with the 19th century vintage bar he culled from an antique store that has been placed on wheels to accommodate different setups (“a key inspiration piece,” says Corbat), along with sepia-toned photographs of Nony’s ancestors. Elements like etched metallic wallpaper, an antiqued mirror tiled wall with gold leaf frame, and gray bamboo flooring salvaged from fashion designer Maria Pinto’s boutique (which formerly occupied the space) Corbat points out, “add a touch of gilt and glamour without ostentation.”

new restaurant at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Anna McGrady White of Atlanta-based the Johnson Studio, architect on the project, says the space combines aspects of both a cellar and a dining room. “A glass wall and door allow the patrons to view the actual wine cellar while adding a contemporary element to the otherwise traditional room. Rustic brick, deep umber walls, and a rich walnut table add to the cozy private dining experience,” she says. A pair of wing chairs featuring cork upholstery is a standout, but the ceiling, crafted from natural, caramel hued pecky cypress—an indigenous Louisiana wood known for its elongated pockets and sculpturing—
