1149 East Restaurant
Following the success of their collaboration on the 1149 Restaurant in Warwick, RI, Thee Food Group Enterprises commissioned RGB to design their new restaurant in Seekonk, MA.
1149 East is a modern design composition of horizontal elements bisected by a dramatic vertical shale stone wall. It incorporates a wealth of traditional materials, such as stacked stone, bronze framed windows, and stucco to give it a warm and inviting feel—critical to their mission of casual elegance. Inside, patrons are greeted by a shimmery glass tile mosaic wall, flanked by back lit floor to ceiling wine cabinets rendered in a rich walnut. A dramatic amber colored chandelier appears to float overhead. Midnight blue booths, cobalt shaded pendant light fixtures, dark chocolate ceilings and a limestone tile wall set the tone for the dining experience. A quartz stone bar sits beneath a softly glowing light box with panels of seagrass, trimmed in dark walnut.
