Andreas Hogue Salon was named 2020 Salon of the Year by Salon Today Magazine
We created an 18 foot tall illuminated retail wall, to create a dramatic architectural element that emphasized the amazing ceiling height in the space while at the same time creating a retail experience that cannot be ignored.
Salon of the Year. We still cannot believe it. Many years ago, when I first met Andreas and began helping him with his salon (which was very small at the time), I used to thumb though industry magazines and marvel at the incredible spaces that others had designed and built. Together, Andreas and I dreamed of what it would be like to actually own and run such a beautiful space, and though we aimed to create one, never did we actually think that we would land on one of the magazine’s pages—much less on the cover as THE “Salon of the Year”. Truly, this is a dream come true and a moment that could not have been realized without you.

The footprint of the space was very unusual, which required us to place the styling tables on angles. We floated clouds of paper lanterns over the table and color area, and built the styling tables out of stainless steel so that they would reflect light. The result was a space that constantly moves and evolves and changes as you walk through it. Almost like a sculpture garden.
