Duplex Restaurant

Designer Thomas Schoos’ concept for Duplex restaurant in Beverly Hills was to emulate a casual yet opulent home where people can mingle and relax in an environment that is warm, handsome and inviting.  And yet, though comfortable, the décor of Duplex is visually stimulating, combining old world elegance with an eclectic contemporary attitude. A lush garden greets guests who enter through two flanking front patios. Inside, hardwood floors, open fireplaces, a variety of furniture styles and colorful patchwork rugs offer rich contrasting textures. Giant walls of bookcases provide a backdrop for all sorts of unusual artifacts, from leather-bound volumes to exotic bronze statues to other assorted tchotchkes. There is even a vintage taxidermy water buffalo named Terry.
