BESPOKE: A CURRENT LOOK AT PONTY BISTRO HARLEM
At top is the new branch that just opened on 7th Avenue at the corner of 139th Street which has a look that is more current. Dark wood furniture is accented by bright, white marble and a range of stools and chairs can be seen in the mix. Accents of color such as orange and sage go beyond basic but somehow are neutral in tone at the same time. Floors are wood textured ceramic tile that are staggered instead of applied on a strict grid. Lighting is also a refreshing mix of hanging pendants that accentuates the ceiling heights along with more subtle inset lighting that is smaller in scale and so much more sophisticated. Mixing things up a little is key here and also a balance of new and old aesthetics.
