Swallow Cafe – Tripoli, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn

Our studio designed furniture for the first Swallow Cafe in Brooklyn, and we’re thrilled that they keep thriving and spreading their wings.  We’ve now built 3 cafes for them, the most recent being this conversion of the Tripoli space in Brooklyn, NY.  It features an empire revival storefront, with a complexly textured interior that highlights the space’s original murals.  The natural and airy space has a French window prep area, rustic raised and earthy seating to make the most of a small platform against one wall (which now feels like a perfect place to perch), and understated surfaces that seamlessly integrate marble, artisanal concrete, paint, resin, and reclaimed wood in this beautiful space.
