|A couple months ago I started a design project at The Hat Factory, an awesome entertainment venue here in Richmond, VA.|
The idea... turn a very casual and eclectic atmosphere
(photo above) into a modern and chic club and 2nd floor exclusive lounge by New Years Eve!
|Design board for the new and improved lounge space. |
|The space planning on the 2nd floor needed to seat multiple "exclusive" parties in the same area. White leather curved sectional sofa's and cocktail tables with hidden wedge seating was the way to go.|

Before & Afters
-Green wall had to go.
-Furniture had to go.
-Figure out a way to create art on the grey sound absorption boards
|The "Luna" sofa works great in the center of the space. Two parties can enjoy the night in privacy because of the high back cushions.|

On the ground floor the stage for live bands, DJ's, and other forms of entertainment needed to be revamped.
We added white panels and magenta swags just below the can lights to create height and draw your eye to a brighter stage.

This space was turned into a cabana style seating area for those who want sit and hang out closer to the dance floor.
