You wouldn't expect the interior of a restaurant housed inside an Italian home design showroom not to be cool. Fratelli Lyon's décor is sleek and industrial with clean-lined furniture, flatware and decorative accents from the Driade store.
Orange place mats and tables and chairs provide a pop of color against the muted background of whites, metals, dark wood and wicker. Behind the white, granite bar, wines are stored in metallic shelves that also acts as a divider between the front and back dining rooms.
Concrete columns and metallic lamps add to the industrial feel, but the floor-to-ceiling windows that enclose the restaurant allow natural light to warm up the place during the day and just as the sun is setting.
