Store Design: Omonia Bakery by Bluarch Architecture The Omonia Bakery designed by Bluarch Architecture is located at Queens, New York, USA. It is a 1,000 square foot state of the art store design featuring mainly the 1/4 inch mosaic chocolate brown Bisazza tile finish on the ceiling and walls. Thanks to this fluid space the bakery has captured the attention of many. The tiling is a retail design of Astoria’s Omonia Café with bubbles and curves that goes around mid-way down the main walls. It ends with different heights meeting a shelf. This minimalist commercial design allows customers to settle down while enjoying their chosen treats.

London Calling: St ALi Opens in Clerkenwell - Food & Drink fter two and a half years of planning, St ALi UK opened its doors in Clerkenwell on Saturday, with London-based Melburnian Tim Williams (aka Tim Styles) at the helm as Director of Coffee. Tim, who left London’s Square Mile Coffee Roasters to join St ALi’s Clerkenwell Road cafe, is returning to the St Ali fold after a seven-year hiatus. But this is not where Tim began his coffee career, he has quite an impressive resume of globe-trotting, having started out at Ray cafe in Brunswick, before a stint at St ALi in Melbourne. He then moved to London and began working at Flat White, and went on to Intelligentsia in the US before returning to London to work at Square Mile, which has led the coffee industry in the UK. Now he’s returned to familiar territory at St ALi UK, where owner of the St Ali Group Salvatore Malatesta sings his praises.
NYC Blog: Men's Fashion, Retail and Visual Merchandising Lately I’ve been thinking about the British designer, Tommy Nutter. He and his work have crossed my mind. I don’t know why, but there does seem to be a resurgence in interest of his work as evidenced in London’s “Tommy Nutter: Rebel On The Row” exhibit at The Fashion and Textile Museum in South London. I review his pictures on Google Image search. I come to the same conclusion I made in 1974, Tommy Nutter was irrepressibly cute, boyishly attractive, if not at times a strikingly handsome man, a man with dimples. Men and women found him attractive. Breve Historia del Escaparatismo La utilización del escaparate, tal como lo entendemos hoy en día, data del siglo XIX. Estrechamente unida a la aparición de los grandes almacenes, Paris y Londres fueron las capitales que vieron nacer el escaparate (los primeros fueron los Au Bon Marché parisinos, seguidos de los Harrod´s londinenses o los Sears o Macy´s americanos) y las revistas de moda. Con el apogeo de la alta costura a principios de siglo y el establecimiento de tallajes estándar y el consiguiente acercamiento de la ropa y la moda a la gente de clase media y baja, la habilidad para disponer los artículos de cara a la calle se convirtió en todo un arte primero y, posteriormente, con el desarrollo de la psicología y el estudio del comportamiento y los hábitos humanos, en una ciencia.

Here are a few key Interior Design Trends for 2013 + 2014:
A History of Visual Merchandising in Retail Stores The rise of the department store, or grand emporium, in the 19th century brought more changes in store design and visual displays. The early department stores continued with the idea of displaying merchandise in elaborate and luxurious setting. Techniques that were previously used in small dry goods stores, expositions, and arcades were experimented with, and either used or rejected. The department stores of the 19th century transformed the concept of visual merchandising in four ways. In doing so, merchandise display was made one of the most important aspects of the shopping experience. The World Expositions only occurred every few years in a small number of large cities throughout Europe, and, eventually, in the United States.
