The authentic taste of Italy in your neighborhood

Zaza has been delighting diners in the historic London suburb of Ruislip for over a decade with authentic Italian cuisine and warm service but Zaza knew it was time to update the interior with the design help of Studio Arin and furniture supplied by Kirkdale. 

The goal was to enhance both the dining experience and the ambiance of this historic establishment. Situated in a building dating back to the 1600s, Zaza has successfully blended its rich historical setting with contemporary touches through this latest renovation.

We had the opportunity to supply all the new tables and loose seating for Zaza. Ash table tops bring a natural and warm aesthetic to the dining space. Their light wood grain offers a classic look that complements the traditional feel of the building. Alongside these, resin table tops have also been introduced, providing a modern contrast to the wood with their smooth and glossy surface. These tables are hard-wearing, stain-resistant, and offer a beautiful alternative to marble. Studio Arin picked a resin colour full of neutral tones, soft warm caramels, and browns to compliment the rest of the interior. You can see more resin colour options here or contact hello@kirkdalestudios.com to see colour resin samples.

Seating at Zaza has undergone a significant transformation with the introduction of the Alina and Alma side chairs, finished in high-quality, neutral-toned leather. These chairs imbue Zaza’s with a relaxed luxury while supporting guests with plush upholstery and a comfortable structure, encouraging diners to linger over their evening of dining at Zaza’s. The chairs help to break up the traditional style of the building and inject a modern flair which resonates with the Zaza brand.

However the historic building that houses Zaza adds an extra layer of charm to the restaurant. Its centuries-old walls provide a unique backdrop to the modern furnishings, creating a dining environment that is both inviting and intriguing. The juxtaposition of old and new is a key feature of Zaza’s updated interior, providing guests with a visually stimulating environment.

This renovation project, supplied by Kirkdale Studios, has focused on enhancing the aesthetic appeal and comfort of Zaza, ensuring that the furniture not only looks good but is also practical for everyday use. The choice of materials, from the natural wood of the ash table tops to the luxurious leather of the chairs, has been carefully considered to provide durability and style.
