In Dreary London, A Mediterranean Eatery Inspired By the Sun
Are there new restaurants out there that aren’t inspired by the seaside? First we had the Italian Riviera, then the Sydney coast, and now Omar’s Place — a restaurant located smack in the middle of London but inspired by the Mediterranean. The interior was shaped by Sella Concept, a London-based female design duo whose concept for the space started with idea of the sun — the defining element of Mediterranean lifestyle, and the biggest influence on the produce of the region. In the interior, this translates to tubular suede seating, circular mirrors, fluted timber wall cladding, a curved bar, scalloped terrazzo table- and countertops, and those circular Pool lights we’ve always loved. Add to that terracotta walls and teal chairs by Note Design Studio and Carl Hansen, and you’ve got yourself a contender for the most 2018 interior yet.
