Do you ever return from vacation and you can’t stop thinking about something you ate at a fabulous restaurant? I feel that way about stores and restaurant décor.
Little did I know that Lah would become so famous, covered in various architectural and retail design publications, so I found some images via google to add to my own and share as I know Retail Details readers love good retail design.
Glass on three sides, I could see right into the restaurant each night from my daughter’s apartment. I am still amazed at how late they eat in Madrid, with the first reservation usually around 9pm – and that’s for the early birds.
The first thing to catch my eye was the feature table for large parties. Lit from within, the glass top creates an illusion of plates and glasses floating above an interesting configuration of chopsticks.
The choice of colors are perfectly welcoming with a mix of cool blues and warmer tones that create a hip, comfortable atmosphere that is upscale without being pretentious or posh. This was our table with a great view of the bustling street outside.
Here’s a wider view:
The lighting fixtures were delightful, but by far my favorite element of the décor was the wall of plates.
I’m thrilled to have my kids back in the U.S. now, but I’m glad we visited Madrid while they were there. If you get a chance to visit Madrid, add LAH to your must-see list. Kudos to IlmioDesign for such a beautiful restaurant design!
