Whole Foods Market | Bowman

Location: Little Rock, AR

Services: Furniture Design

This new Whole Foods Market store in Little Rock, Arkansas showcases a front wall made entirely of repurposed shipping containers, and they define all indoor and outdoor seating areas. Our furniture package assimilates the industrial character of the shipping containers, and builds on it to reflect the area’s active outdoor living lifestyle as well as the local Ozark organic architecture of Fay Jones. On the exterior tables, the framing details and colors match the shipping containers, while the steel tops have cut patterns that reflect the interior graphics. In the indoor bar, the tables are made of chunky reclaimed oak with galvanized steel details. Their custom purse hooks are designed to resemble leather suspenders that one might see on a lumberjack. The accompanying bar stools are upholstered in red and black plaid auto seat fabric, referencing the archetypal lumberjack shirt.
