Design

George the Salon, Chicago, Illinois

Friday, 24 February 2012 10:52

When George Gonzalez decided to design his very own George the Salon in Chicago, Illinois, he originally drew his inspiration from his vision of a space where warmth and serenity reigned.

De Shun Wang recalls, “ I remember when George and I first walked through the raw space, sunlight poured through the large windows and flooded the space with warmth. Time seemed to slow down. It was exactly that energy that we wanted to create in the new salon.”

And that is precisely what they succeeded in doing. The bare brick walls and wood floors offer warm-colors and natural finishes in modern proportions and a minimalist design. Every detail, from the reception desk to the waiting lounge and cutting stations, were designed with this in mind. The oversized mirrors take in the whole salon, going above and beyond the call of during by connecting the client with the stylists and giving the salon its unique personality.

Dark wood work stations and leather armchairs are the perfect liaison between the brick walls and wood floors, while white is the color used for accents and to define spaces, like the ceramic tile floor near the reception desk, the frames around the mirrors and windows, and to give the ceiling more depth and dimension. The built-in lounge area is also white, but softened with silvery shantung upholstery and complementary throw pillows – a perfect haven for guests to peruse magazines or the retail products.

Indeed, a haven of warmth and serenity!  For more info: georgethesalon.com or www.deshunwang.com
