Karla’s retail store, Sylvania, NSW
A plaster portico detail at the store entrance sets an upmarket tone for this women’s clothing store, which boasts grand, neoclassical gestures throughout. Cascading forest-green velvet drapes in the change rooms and storeroom contrast strikingly with the white stone floor and panelled central counter, above which a chandelier lends a decorative flourish. Contemporary detailing, such as custom stainless-steel rails, frames the display fixtures, while panelled detailing alludes back to the neoclassical theme.
