Last night a new restaurant opened in the lobby of our office, Alison Eighteen.  While we are elated at the thought of the many delicious power lunches in our future (we’ve already picked out our booth!), we could not contain our excitement when we heard a few months back from the restaurant’s developer that there were plans for some wow-factor wallpaper.

The restaurant’s design team, Asfour Guzy, commissioned the Brooklyn based talents at Flat Vernacular (carried at StudioFourNYC) to illustrate a custom toile for Alison Eighteen, complete with motifs of fruits and veggies, anthropomorphic chickens and a NYC streetscape – what we presume to be our own 18th Street! Check out some more of this wallpaper creation that really makes us smile…

A favorite moment: occupy chickens carrying signs “Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘n Roll” !

    Love it! What a fun way to make a classic very current. And is it just me or should chickens be declared the official mascot of Brooklyn?
