If you live in Charlotte, NC, then you’ve certainly seen the hot new restaurant with the jungle vibes making its way around the internet by now. This is Para and we had the honor of creating some really special moments of interior design with our Moss Art. One of the owners is Chet Desai and he has been a client and friend of The Savage Way for years now. When we first started this company (and when we were still doing social media and marketing work) we helped him open Stache House & Lounge in Southend. Well things have come full circle as we were able to help him on his latest restaurant venture, Para.
We created two standout green wall moments for this contemporary, modern style restaurant and bar. The desire was to feel like you were walking into a lush and luxurious establishment like you would in Miami or NYC – but right here in the Queen City. Para will deliver a globally influenced menu built from fresh, high-quality ingredients – a little something for everyone.
Now for the Green Walls…The Moss Art
The first is this 12’w x 8.5’h gorgeous fern, foliage and moss wall that showcases the Para logo in gold painted letters. Green walls made of moss and other preserved plants are ideal for clients who want the look and feel of a plant wall but do not want to be concerned with maintaining it or killing the plants. All of the plants that you see have gone through an extensive preservation process so there is no need for water, drainage, sunlight or a costly maintenance package. We love how this piece acts as a center piece for the restaurant.
The second moss installation we created was a green wall for the bar fronts on the opposite side of the building. In total it is over 90 sqft of coverage. Using sheet moss, mood moss and reindeer moss, all preserved, we created this dimensional, textural, plant look to help tie into the lux feel of the entire place.
We also created this custom Mood Moss channel that lives behind the banquette seating. Just another little nod to the beauty of nature and the care and effort that went into every nook and cranny of Para.
We are always honored to have repeat customers and to have a client that trusts us to help bring a vision on paper into real life. Cheers to grand openings (officially open 1/19/22), cheers to using mother nature in interior design and cheers to friends bringing their dreams to life.
