Krog Street Market

By: Danielle Cornely

In November of last year, Krog Street Market opened its doors to a hungry Atlanta community ready for a new experience. The market follows in the footsteps of pioneers like the Chelsea Market in New York and the Sweet Auburn Curb Market here in Atlanta, combining dining with community and historical preservation. The result is a beautiful, inspiring gathering place where you can peruse local goods in market stalls before taking in a meal from one of the many global-inspired food vendors.

Keeping an industrial but still inviting feel with metal and wood, the seating areas in the market encourage interaction and conversation. Let’s get a better look at that counter lighting in the background:

Curved glass pendants that resemble the cake stands below them? Genius. And beautiful.

A mesmerizing wall of what looks like reclaimed wood resides by one of the market’s entrances. It’s okay to stare.

This table at The Cockentrice is big enough for friends and family, but still feels intimate. We love the personal touch of open shelving made from wood and industrial piping. (Could those be cookbooks on the shelves?)

It’s safe to say Krog Street Market is a feast for the eyes as well as the belly. Genuinely delicious food, talented artisans, and a community atmosphere have us craving another visit SOON. We can’t wait to see the market grow and flourish!

Design Takeout: Restaurant Style Comes Home

We love when commercial spaces go beyond being a blank canvas and become environments. These local Atlanta restaurant interiors really caught our eye — we would love to bring home some of their decor! If we did, here’s what it might look like:

We love the bright, bold red seating at Leon’s Full Service in Decatur (top). This bathroom in a client’s home (bottom) features similar metallic accents, dark wood, and a neutral palette to highlight an intense red chair.

Wood + metal = awesome. Cakes & Ale in Decatur (top) features industrial metal seating and lighting with farm tables. Mixing these two materials creates visual interest in the stark, neutral color palette of the bottom photo.

Bhojanic in Buckhead (top) has a fun, eclectic feel with rich colors and graphic elements. Play up that bohemian feel with a varied color palette and lots of great textures, like in this Toronto loft (bottom).
