It was a joy to take this project at Spelunkers, a family-owned burger joint, in Front Royal, VA. With a sunny atmosphere and excellent local food, it seemed fitting to design a space as warm and charming as the local fixture's delightful reputation.
The custom built booths are made from reclaimed barn wood out of Ohio and Pennsylvania. There is a relaxed charm to reclaimed barn wood that instantly makes people feel at home.
We painted the restaurant in a pale custard cream and glossy ivory to enhance the natural sunlight that is so much a part of the restaurant’s environment. We mixed school house style chairs into the design to contrast the cool, smooth steel with the grains of the aged oak.
