PAIN D’AVIGNON Bakery Shop

The cosy, warmly lit Essex Street Market store juxtaposes rustic, industrial elements with vibrant, contemporary graphics.

Decorative highlights include: a wheel-hung glass sliding door that protects the baked goods; salvaged-wood shelves with detachable metal hooks for flexible configuration; and an eye-catching black-and-white print of a wheat field.

Glass panel with industrial wheels as a reminiscence of the NYC’s industrial area where the market is located.

Poppy flower is associated with wheat field
