Cigar lounge design - Ritz Carlton

To a certain extent, designing residential interiors is simpler than commercial ones. A home needs to appeal to one household, while the latter must attract many people. And even when these groups share interests, it remains challenging. A recent Decorilla client realized this and sought help creating their business space. Read on to learn how a moody cigar lounge design magnified their appeal!

The Challenge: Cigar Lounge Design & Décor

Every project requires the designer to overcome unique challenges. That’s why researching residential or commercial interior design firms is essential. It helps to pinpoint who delivers the best results on similar jobs. For this client to consider the final cigar lounge a success, the designer needed to:

  • Establish a cohesive, sleek, and sophisticated gentleman’s lounge atmosphere inside the building and out on the patio
  • Devise a layout that maximizes space for each of the design’s distinct zones
  • Identify fine high tables and chairs, as well as leather lounge seating for the interior
  • Implement lighting that ensures good visibility while also enhancing the broody ambiance

The contemporary Art Deco air of the interior becomes apparent within a few steps past the front door. Here a black and gold-flecked accent wall sets a luxurious tone for the rest of the cigar lounge design. At the same time, the gold product display, complete with backlighting, commands attention. These shelves and the black granite countertops pair beautifully with the wallpaper.

Light wood flooring and counter slats bring warmth to not only the front-of-house area but also throughout the interior. It’s especially true of the built-in humidor just off the entrance. Wooden shelves line the walls, from floor to ceiling, and hold the precious stock. The room is equal parts practical and impressive. It preserves the cigars and displays them in a tasteful, organized manner.

Further into the building lies the main room, home to the lounge and bar. It’s where elegant cigar lounge design ideas become reality. In the middle of the space, anchored by a rustic wine bottle chandelier, is a spacious bar table and stools. Mirrored U-shaped sitting areas flank this central arrangement. Each features a studded leather sofa, two matching armchairs, and a coffee table.

Several flat screens and contemporary artwork dress the textured walls. And at the far end of the room is the bar, which has a similar aesthetic to the sales counter and cigar display. The golden glow from its backlit shelves again brings warmth to the space, alongside many other pendant lights. These lights pop within the moody room – especially against the dark ceiling.

Out on the Patio

A great, open backyard meant the cigar lounge had the opportunity to go big when effecting outdoor patio ideas. Like the interior, outdoor seating consists of different-sized groups. Some feature two armchairs and a coffee table, while others also have L-shaped sectionals and fire pits. Potted plants and trellis screens provide some privacy in-between.

Black and white pergolas and umbrellas offer sun protection and enhance the urban oasis vibe. Textured off-white fabric, light wood, and cement accents ensure the backyard décor feels fresh and unpretentious. Amidst the sitting areas, a simple, slightly elevated wooden stage is visible to all. When not used for performances, it makes an ideal dance floor.
