Is Shaker design the brand new pattern in eating places and cafes? We predict so (see 8 Concepts to Borrow from The Commerce Inn in NYC for significantly compelling proof). And it is sensible: The Shakers created techniques of considerate order for dwelling—and consuming—communally, so why not apply their imaginative and prescient to those, our modern-day gathering areas?
Canadian interiors agency Ste. Marie is deft at creating singular areas to eat, drink, and have fun (see St. Lawrence in Vancouver: A Sultry, Blue-Hued Bistro, Proper Out of a Portray), and once they took on the challenge of constructing an area for Flourist—a small-batch, community-based flour mill based by Janna Bishop, a clothes designer, and Shira McDermott, a meals business professional—they drew from “the 18th century Shaker communities’ guiding ideas of simplicity, utility and honesty.”
