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

Lazy Acres Long Beach CA

“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.
