Good-looking is what we do.

ReTAIl STORE

Our shop at 9-11 Duke Street, Douglas, Isle of Man is rather special. Think old-school vintage General Store rather than generic high-street retailer. Our shop has lots of history and bags of soul; it's been a department store since 1880. Inside you'll find black walls, high-ceilings, huge glass chandeliers and an original Victorian mahogany double-width staircase; it's a veritable treasure-trove of wonderful and unusual things to look at....and (of course) take home with you. We also ship these gorgeous finds off Island and plan to have an online shop up-and-running in the coming months so it’s wise to keep an eye on us here.

Quirky design for a high-end seaside fish restaurant

 

Situated in an old Manx boat shed, next to a traditional fishing harbour… Through our design concept, we have embraced all that it means to be "Manx" (a native of the Isle of Man). A true Manx-concept restaurant has not been created, nor franchised, until now. Based around a local fisherman character, this restaurant celebrates the best of our Island’s traditions, heritage and self-deprecating nature. Irony, tongue-in-cheek humour and a quiet, proud modesty is at the heart of this aesthetic. Fresh seafood, served by the sea, executed well, brings cohesion and integrity to the overall design scheme. At the apex of the double-height, raftered roof, shines an electric blue neon sign with the phrase 'Alright Fella?'. Cleanly framed, stylised graphic art prints around the interior offer colloquial phrases such as ‘Blowin’ a hoolie’, ‘What’s the skeet fella?’ and ‘There’s a boat in the mornin’. A colour palette reminiscent of the ocean (e.g. blues, greens, turquoises, whites and greys) and ombré spray-painted walls sit within a rustic mix of materials and textures such as wood, tiles, velvet, leather, wicker, hessian and metals (copper, chrome and brass). It is the down-to-earth nature of the materials that compounds the successful marriage of the theme with the interior. The materials chosen say that we are proud yet humble, classic yet unpretentious. This is a robust design that speaks of calmness, familiarity and self-assurance, yet never takes itself too seriously. A comfortable, warm and charming space. A fresh and exciting concept for a unique location.

A well-loved watering hole gets a dramatic revamp

 

Sir Norman’s was so named for Island resident and national treasure, the late Norman Wisdom, and Islanders are equally fond of this popular hotel bar. With a respectful nod to the Island’s theatre community, Sir Norman’s is now a bonafide theatre bar, providing the perfect setting for pre- or post-show drinks, right next door to the iconic Gaiety Theatre.

Bespoke furnishings such as plush velvet red curtains, reupholstered old theatre seating and adapted vintage trunks set the atmosphere, while large-scale photography and rich palette of historic colours provide the sense of drama befitting the high ceilings and classic Victorian architecture of this spectacular space.

A leading hotel gets a cool yet classic signature look

 

Built in 1892 and designed by W.L Rennison, The Sefton Hotel is one of the largest hotels on the island and one of very few to survive into the 21st Century. The historic architectural style of the building informed the luxurious new interior scheme of the new restaurant and bar. With its stunning powder blue walls, white carrera marble and burnished brass tables, jewel-patterned Victorian floor tiles with dark oak herringbone wood floors, Harbour Lights at The Sefton offers all day dining in a relaxed, cool and stylish manner. Oversized milk glass globe chandeliers draw the eye to an impressive row of double-height windows which provides an up close and personal view of the ocean, whilst the spaces between the stunning contemporary art-laden columns provide a glimpse of what to expect throughout. The interior exhibits a vibrant and charming aesthetic, refined in its form to match the hotel's prestigious status, focusing on quality finishes, rich materials and a refined selection of furnishings. 

Rehab Squared brought the restaurant and bar up to date with the use of an intriguing colour palette which breathes life and a dramatic new energy into the space. An impressive 6-metre long blue veined marble topped bar, clad in dark oak herringbone patterned wood, establishes itself as the centrepiece and visual focal point of the room.

A vintage tea room with a Belle Époque twist

Casual tea shops and luxury tearooms are gaining popularity. Situated on the increasingly buzzy Castle Street, The Tea Junction is an elegant tribute to old Paris with an Alice in Wonderland twist. The seemingly infinite and exciting tea selection is served in an interior that has been designed with impressive extravagance. Fresh tea leaves are housed in faux black and gold edged apothecary cabinets that look super moody and stylish against the painted noir walls. The dark decor is punctuated by bright pops colour, gold vintage lighting, gold tin ceiling tiles and burnished brass tables. A 12ft private dining table, hand-sprayed in electric blue with a high-gloss finish, sits beautifully next to a stunning set of velvet seated Gothic throne chairs. On a backlit wall feature consisting of old antique doors, a group of gold monkeys climb across holding vintage Edison lights. Additional vintage Parisian-style features include a low tea table decoupaged with pages of an old and worn French novel, completing the inspiring and exciting look. As a result, the ambience is relaxed, warm, fun and inviting. Glass jars displaying loose leaf tea make for a simple feature on the wall next to Victorian etched glass sign and vintage-inspired prints of contemporary celebrities in early 19th Century military uniforms inject an element of nostalgic fun.

Industrial chic for a town centre salon

 

Befitting one of the Isle of Man’s premier hair salons, this striking design complements its owners’ personalities: bold, beautiful and energetic. Making the most of the architecture and industrial foundations of the building, the wood floors, exposed brick and custom-made furniture and wall coverings provide the stylish back drop for a thriving business. The chosen materials are hard wearing to suit hosting this company’s clientele, with inspirational and brave decoration touches to amuse and entertain.
