• What: Wood 2x4 Tiles (cedar?)
• Where: Savoy Restaurant on Prince & Crosby
• Why: These wood tiles look like they were a DIY when they restaurant was designed and they give a funky and warmer look than ceramic or glass. Wood tiles are unusual in NYC and hard to find...
but they are easy to make. Covered with polyurethane, they are as durable as regular wood floors, but much more spa-like and organic in their ability to show off the grain of the wood in repetitious pattern.
