DESCRIPTION: Designed for the modern woman with a hectic lifestyle, Eden by Eden Sassoon is a one-stop salon for all the services a client may need. To help create the welcoming and comfortable feeling at Eden, an upstairs loft was create to overlook the main floor of the studio that connects via a curved staircase with a glass banister. The loft is accentuated and highlighted by dark hardwood floors, which compliment the Takara Belmont Curved Art Dark Wood styling chairs. In the shampoo area you will see a direct departure from traditional leather or plastic shampoo bowl chairs. Because Eden foes not offer color, color staining was not an issue, therefore shampoo chairs are reupholstered in a soft home cotton fabric with matching throw pillows for further comfort.
"The biggest challenge was taking an extremely simple pie-shaped space and turning it into a functional, free-flowing, open floor, home-like environment. We overcame this obstacle by taking modern home design principles such as a curved staircase, open-faced kitchen, built in banquets and molded them into the space. We hit the mark."- Eden Sassoon
