Walk into Corner Shop Cafe, and you’re immediately welcomed into a warm and casual environment before the staff greets you with a friendly hello. The cafe is literally at the corner of Broadway and Bleeker in NoHo, and attracts a lot of NYU and shopper-traffic. The employees are hospitable and the selection of food is great (lunch, dinner, weekend brunch), but the building itself is also worth mentioning.
The high ceilings are topped with pressed-tin and a brick wall is exposed, filling the room with a warm, antiquated feeling. Chandeliers hang from the ceiling and intricate sconces branch out from the gray walls. The hardwood floors are stained to match the assorted chairs and tables scattered throughout the room.
Horizon recently worked with Zeff Design to add a pop of color to the cafe by installing pinch pleat curtains in an orange and white floral pattern. The pattern is contemporary, but pairs well with the sconces and pattern on the pressed-tin. The cream velvet trim on the end of the curtains gives them a clean finish and adds to the warm palate at Corner Shop Cafe.
