De Santos

New York

Furnishing the “Janis” lounge of the West Village restaurant

For the De Santos restaurant in New York’s West Village, By Kenyan sourced props and furniture—from the fireplace and lighting fixtures to a custom-built secret bookshelf in the downstairs speakeasy—in dark woods, coppers, and burnished metals. Our goal was to create a timeless, timeworn aesthetic reminiscent of old New York and classic Parisian cafés of the twenties and thirties.
