About every new trendy restaurant downtown has made subway tiles part of the interior and the early century design aesthetic has finally been catching on in Harlem. The above photos shows the classic white subway tiles at the new Il Forno
pizzeria on West 116th and the bathroom tiles being installed at the Harlem Public
in West Harlem. Other pioneer eatery uptowns that have placed subway tiles as part of a classic interior includes the Corner Social
, Chez Lucienne
and the Harlem Shambles
. White is the classic color used in most cases since it is considered the cleanest color and pairs well with other contrasting hues.
The white tiles are also very inexpensive.ReplyDelete
Subway tile always looks great, and it is a smart business move as new Harlem businesses have proven, customers want to patronize fresh, tasteful and clean establishments, the same standards as downtown.ReplyDelete

disconcerting to see what seems like a swing toward 'good taste' by using the subway tile being marred by that god awful font on the menu board.ReplyDelete
it makes you wonder what people actually consider to be good taste. clearly this is a result of trend and not an aesthetic eye. it looks likes comic sans slower brother.
