I stumbled on this wall treatment when reading a review about a new restaurant in New York called Brushstroke. No, I am not planning a trip to NYC and searching for the latest fab dinning experience – but I do like to keep up on new restaurants especially in metro hot spots. Not so much for the food – but for the interior tricks. It’s always interesting to see what space designers think is important in a restaurant. David Bouley’s restaurant designers put 12,000 old (recycled) paperbacks to good use as the walls in the bar/lounge. I thought this was pretty clever however I don’t think it’s a good idea to try to yank a book out and start reading – but that would be comic! Jenga anyone!
