Finished Project- The Melting Pot

Everything is better dipped in cheese.  Or chocolate.  Here's a restaurant that celebrates fondue, great concept right?!  And we haven't even gotten to the interior yet!

We love designing custom pieces for our customers.  So when we had the opportunity to work with the design team for one of our favorite repeat customers on a new booth design we were thrilled to make them some prototypes. This is a new style of booth back for us with the fabric foldover.  Paired with [...]
