Restaurant Sheets

The Mandarin Oriental in Paris by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku has beautiful, sheet-like forms on the wall.  The walls are covered in a delicate cotton fabric, and white wool spreads across the floors.

While the restaurant is a stark but peaceful white, Manku explains, "Your eyes get so used to [the white walls] that when the food comes on your plate, with the rich colors -- the green of the asparagus or the red of the tomato -- the food itself becomes the main experience."

I can't get over how beautiful and light the space feels. I am in love with these walls.
