Featured Flooring Project: Raised by Wolves, La Jolla, Calif.
Raised by Wolves, a cocktail bar and retail store featuring a selection of curated, hard-to-find bar products and spirits, opened in 2018 at an outdoor shopping mall in La Jolla, Calif. It was an experiment for the Consortium Holdings, a development group that runs 15 hospitality enterprises that focuses on quality-driven products and a social environment built to encourage the sharing of ideas.
Named after the tale of brothers Romulus and Remus from Roman mythology, the bar takes an opulent approach to decor. Designed by Paul Basile of BASILE Studio, the design was inspired by French Art Nouveau and Victorian Rococo Revival styles. The decadent space borrowed inspiration from London hotel bars and world-class hotels, and the floors feature custom parquet wood from the Duchateau Palais collection.
