The restaurant “Swift”

The restaurant “Swift” has a bar as well. This room is clad with cerused oak boards in a pale, dusty grey. It looks amazing with the concrete floor and bright red chairs. The artwork above the bar is by the Starn brothers who have a facility in Beacon. The tables were custom made by Wickham Solid Wood Furniture. They were painstakingly run through a planer so as to create “age” by marring the surface of the boards (the opposite of what a planer typically does). Then they were wrapped with a steel strap and exposed bolts to nod toward the building’s industrial heritage.
