Owners’ Comments:

“The 18-foot barn wood processing table with ghost chairs is another special design feature. It is simple in form and function, with an element of surprise and impact. It’s an area where clients can relax, read and enjoy community with others.”

Judges’ Comments:

“Great idea, using the processing table as a communal table where clients can interact with one another.”—Patrascu

“I love how the round retail area forces the client to flow through into the front desk.”—Grissler

“The beautiful neutral color palette and classically simple furnishings are key to the luxury spa ambiance.  The three pod reception desk and brushed metal walls create a beautifully professional entre to the salon.”--Hillenmeyer
