Interior Design: Grove & Vine Providore

June 29, 2011

Designers Kate Stokes and Haslett Grounds create bespoke furniture from cork and OSB for the fitout of this food and wine store in South Yarra.

The design of Grove & Vine Providore was a collaboration between Haslett Grounds and Kate Stokes of Coco Flip – the first of its kind for the Melbourne couple. Haslett and Kate were approached by owners Roger Duncan and Sherri Dickinson to design a unique environment for their boutique wine store in South Yarra. The brief called for a space that would reflect the individuality and character of each product Grove and Vine would have on offer.

The challenge was to turn this long, narrow blank canvas into something warm and inviting; a celebration of good food and wine that reflected the owners’ passion for quality produce and their hospitable nature.

The expanse of OSB (oriented strand board) that was used for the custom-designed furniture was chosen for its unique character and warmth. The furniture was designed to show off each product and provide storage for wine boxes and other produce amongst the displays. Cork is also used widely throughout the interior. The window features an installation of 2000 hanging corks, while a sea of 8000 corks is pressed up against the glass front to form a display for product.
