We recently stopped by the new gourmet deli Taylor
on H Street the other day to check it out, and found ourselves as impressed with the decor as we were with their mouthwatering sandwich menu. They have created a truly unique and stylish shop environment with the help of Local DC Design firm Groupo7
The garage front store is an open, quasi-industrial space. The counter and the far wall are lined with old shipping pallets for a rustic, yet industrial feel that works nicely against the exposed brick. The pallet pieces on the wall are back lit to add depth to the space.
They've used galvanized fence posts to create the shelves that line the back wall and the Pièce de résistance is their funky multi-bulb chandelier in back. Made by grouping several electrical cords together with simple bulbs hanging down, it was quite impressive. The bulbs are lit in degrees of intensity to give the light a little variation.
In addition to the yummiest sandwiches on H Street, the owners have managed to create a really hip and fun environment to enjoy them in. It's amazing how working on a budget can open up creative design solutions..
