Sophie's at Saks Fifth Avenue


The Ask

Saks Fifth Avenue brought Chipman Design on to create a cohesive restaurant design that truly embodies the elevated shopping experience of Saks. Chipman served as the architect for the restaurant locations in Sarasota, Florida and San Juan, and Puerto Rico.

The Task

Located in Saks Fifth Avenue department stores, Sophie’s features a luxurious bar with views into the kitchen, an intimate dining room, and a private dining room that lends itself to business or social events. With the addition of an outdoor terrace bar and lounge, Chipman collaborated with the client to create a neutral palette with an FF+E design that is both cozy and sumptuous; the perfect place to end a day of shopping.
