Client: Foster Street Coffee

More cafes are spreading throughout the city of Durham than ever before. With that, they are bringing more business in general, and each has their own unique vibe and offerings. Foster Street is our latest project and is no exception! The interior design of our team for Foster Street cafe is a calming combination of blues and white/light gray. It feels modern, yet cozy. A two-way electric fireplace sits in the center and white paper lanterns dangle from the ceiling. Small side tables made by a local woodworker bring warm tones to the space, as does the large sliding barn door and the large meeting room table–a space that guests will have access to for collaboration, studying sessions, and small celebrations. We were excited to partner with Foster Street and provide them with a great space to brew and sip!
