Industrial Design with Warmth at New York Eatery Industry Kitchen

NYC’s urban metro treasure, Industry Kitchen, is a beacon of contemporary industrial design form-fitted to the leisurely, modern crowd that crosses its doorstep. Situated on the East River and neighboring the historic South Street Seaport, the eatery offers floor-to-ceiling views of the waterfront and Brooklyn skyline.

The venue is 5,000 square feet of edgy design, with both indoor and outdoor seating so customers can take in the view. With design by ShoP Architects and eco-friendly interior by Wid Chapman Architects, Industry Kitchen takes advantage of the angular structure and streamlined landscape to seamlessly integrate into the vintage industrial seaport vibe.

The venue creates a warm contemporary expression of the area with reclaimed plank wood, black tile, and raw concrete. Seating is available at individual or communal tables, freestanding bar, or outdoor lounge and terrace to create an open and inviting atmosphere.

Warm reclaimed wood pairs with hard-edge blackened steel; hard pairs with soft; and custom-made pendant lighting resembling industrial gears light the dining areas.

Smooth, beautifully patterned oak tabletops made from reclaimed industrial flooring were procured from Olde Good Things, paired with the stunning cast iron New York table legs for the atmospheric warm-industrial feel. The machine legs are embossed with New York, NY, and replicate 19th-century American manufacturing. These sturdy legs are fantastic for reuse in new residential and commercial designs, especially when paired with eco-friendly reclamations.

Industry Kitchen is atmospheric contemporary American dining with flair – offering wood oven grilled meats and pizza, classic entrees, and creative cocktails. The venue has been featured in Gotham Magazine, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Architectural Digest, among others, for the combination of food, drink, and design.

Texas Showcase at the a’Bouzy Restaurant

When restaurateur Shawn Virene proposed his first solo endeavor, a’Bouzy, he had a very particular vision in mind; a culinary haven where fine wines and great food have an equal place at the table.

a’Bouzy, named after the French village Bouzy located in the heart of the Champagne region, features an effervescent and coastal Mediterranean ambience echoing the namesake’s region throughout with an open layout, exposed brick and reclaimed wood.

Olde Good Things had the pleasure of working with Shawn and his team during the design process, in the hopes of bringing a mix of both modern and antique touches to round out his ideas for the space.

To help maximize seating capacity without sacrificing space, Olde Good Things recommended our custom-built industrial wood top swing seats in the bar and in the outdoor seating areas. These seats provide a classic industrial look with modern accents. As a counter to this modern seating solution, we suggested a set of 3 antique blown glass lattice pendant lights to help anchor the space. Throughout the dining room, Shawn and his team chose to use our Altered Antiques industrial wood flooring topped tables paired with Brooklyn cast iron legs to add a worn-in vintage feel.

At Olde Good Things, we enjoy working with restaurateurs and designers to help bring their ideas to life. We offer a wide variety of both custom-built and salvaged antique products to suit any need as well as providing special pricing for the restaurant industry. So, whether you’re looking to add elements of industrial, rustic, modern, or vintage, Olde Good Things has something for every design aesthetic.
