Sleek New Vancouver Restaurant Marries Old World Charms to Mod Flair

Well this is rather nice: New restaurant Savio Volpe in Vancouver has a super-fresh look courtesy of local design studio Ste. Marie. To capture the vibe of an osteria, or simple, traditional Italian restaurant, in this new space, the architects combined elements of Italian design—marble, tile, pleated-oak wall paneling—and incorporated elements from the modernist design tradition and contemporary trends (lotso metal accents, sconces with geometric fabric lampshades, globe pendant lights, and more). The kitchen is open and visible to diners, letting natural light flood the entire interior, and quaint banquettes upholstered in checkered red-and-white textiles give the whole affair a modern, but lived-in, vibe.
