Wine enthusiasts heading to Napa Valley have a new stop to pick up provisions for the day – Dean & Deluca’s remodeled market in St. Helena, Calif.
Inspired by the aesthetic of the brand's SoHo flagship store, the redesign of the upscale grocery/market includes a new coffee bar, expanded wine retail area and concierge desk.
The market area houses new stainless-steel and granite counters, tile wall splash and stainless-steel shelving. Wood flooring connects both the market and wine display area, where single-lamp suspended light fixtures provide ambient lighting. The elliptical wine concierge desk features clear-sealed Oak countertops, LED under-counter lighting and footrest brackets fabricated by a local blacksmith.
