DL English worked with Price Chopper Super Markets to help push their brand forward with their new Market Bistro. The new food experience received a glowing review by Story Mavericks, saying:

Market Bistro is a distinct place, an experience that offers an ESCAPE from the ordinary, an ESTHETIC delight of sorts with its bold design, an ENTERTAINING place to explore anything food and finally, an opportunity to EDUCATE one’s self in the fine art of cooking.

First Whole Foods in New Hampshire Includes DLE Designed Pub

Opened August 19, 2014, the Nashua, New Hampshire Whole Foods Market features J.Bartlett’s Public House, a 50 seat pub. It is the first Whole Foods in the North Atlantic region to feature an in-store pub and restaurant, with 32 craft beers on top, wood-oven pizza and smoked meats!

DLE designed the pub’s layout, interior architecture, materials and finishes, and furniture.

Gelson’s interior, La Cañada Flintridge


Take a look at our latest store! Crowds are still thronging the new Gelson’s Supermarket in La Cañada Flintridge, CA. DL English designed the vast interior, including all fixtures, flooring, finishes, architectural elements, soffits, decor, as well as indoor and outdoor seating areas, giving the Gelson’s brand a makeover with fresh local flair. The Gelson’s at Long Beach was the first store to benefit from this new approach. Read about the La Cañada opening in this article from The Shelby Report.

DL English Design wins design awards for two projects!

DLE’s work on the Oxnard store was selected as Finalist in Interior Design Magazine’s Food Retail category. We put Whole Foods’ values of sustainability and restoration into practice by creating a space that is aesthetically appealing yet carefully crafted with the environment in mind.

DLE’s design for the Newport Beach store was also a Best-of-Year Honoree. The theme of this decor package was inspired by Whole Foods’ commitment to environmental preservation along with the famous natural setting of the area. The interior architecture is defined by stepped soffits of reclaimed wood and angled eyebrows like the layered bluffs carved out by the ocean over time.

Decor for Lazy Acres in Long Beach has modern, agrarian feel

“We wanted to make sure that ‘lazy’ brought to mind, not what we usually think of as lazy,” says Deborah English, “but slow cooking and real food, a simpler time, to slow down the shopping, wanting people to hang out and linger and feel comfortable.”

She adds, “We thought it was really appropriate to take more of an adapted reuse, or repurposed, approach. We want the customer, when they walk into the store, to walk into something they know, have familiarity with. That’s very important in food retailing—that you can walk in and figure it out and understand what you’re doing.” See more images here.
