Pieces.ie Fit out Case Study - Pomodorino, Swords

We were approached by the owners of Pomodorino’s  in Swords, initially to source furniture for their Italian Restaurant.
On review of the space and discussing with the client, it came clear that a whole renovation and refit was needed.

The restaurant originally opened as a takeaway and it interior still had that lay out and feel, our client wanted to create a more intimate dining space.
The interiors were one of a traditional Italian pizzeria, deep reds with dimly lit seating areas, the space lacked airiness and light. It became imperative to us that the green and reds of Italy were important to have in the interiors but we ensured them they would be included in a more subtle and considered way.

The scope of this project evolved from a furniture Schedule initially to full drawers and visuals, including moods boards and sample boards.
We met in our Stoneybatter store to go through the potential pieces of furniture we could add to the restaurant, with our suggested chairs, tables, stool, and accessories, such as lights, outdoor furniture and soft furnishings.

Looking to maintain the traditional Italian aesthetics throughout, but make the restaurant feel new and revamped we agreed on a rustic textured finish on the walls along with the Georgian green painted paneling all around. The warmer tones of the red came into effect from the leather of the booths, we mixed materials here with a tan leather seat and velvet back. This was to ensure the comfort for the intimate dining our clients were searching for.

With our designs agreed with the clients, we finalised the work schedule and costs with Forja Works. We handed over to them to roll our our designs and bespoke furniture pieces in their workshop with the clear out of the restaurant planned alongside the refit – allowing the Restaurant to only having to close for 4 days.

We worked closely with the Construction team, to ensure a clear understanding of the brief, providing drawings and measurements the details were finite, such as finishing materials, seconding checking of measurements, and layouts. The construction consisted of significant demolition of the existing bar, paneling, and removal of the booth seating.
Day two was all about rebuilding the restaurant, constructing and fitting the new bar, a bespoke wine bottle display, restaurant dividers, and wall paneling, with painting to work alongside this.

The transformation of restaurant is seem the whole way through the space, from the exterior re-paint, new reception and bar area, dining booths, furniture as well as bespoke finishes to the wine display, bar and panelling and much much more.

This was an excellent opportunity for us to showcase what we can offer in the interior design, Fitout and supply services, and we’re delighted with the results.
