Description: The design here plays subtly between the idea of day-and-night, with the floor representing the daytime sky and the ceiling, the night sky. The austere wall units and bulkhead form a strong definition between the black ceiling and the white floor. A moon-shaped light punches halfway through the bulkhead above the counter, the bulkhead unifying the space and creating a sense of intimacy in the high volumes. Classical cornices and mouldings create a familiar feeling and soften the strong lines of the display units. The main focus of the store is on the linen, which is displayed on white backdrop in front of the black walls.
