The Verve Wine space is designed to be welcoming, warm, and bright.

Verve Wine is a new wine shop centered around community and conviviality. The focus of the experience is the center table: it serves as a place to sit, taste, have conversation, and engage. The wine tasting room at the Hotel de Tourrel in France's Saint-Remy-de-Provence provided inspiration, with its center table surrounded by wine shelving. Inspiration also came from the classic bars in Rome: narrow spaces with high ceilings. Bars such as I Colori del Vino & Roscioli merge the two experiences of retail and hospitality in an effortless and natural way, and Verve Wine brings this concept to San Francisco.

The "Old World" feel of the space is made new and fresh by focusing on bringing a domestic sensibility to the design. The combination of painted cabinets, marble, and brass give the feeling of a large farmhouse kitchen. Grey-stained French oak floors are combined with Italian Breccia Medicea marble, brass, and a simple, pared-down black and white color scheme. The lanterns over the tasting table are by Casa Midy, and tools are by Fyrn. Bathroom tile is a traditional Moroccan Zellige tile, while all plumbing fixtures are by Waterworks.

People love to spend time in a beautiful kitchen, and the design seeks make everyone feel comfortable in the space, and not be intimidated by the buying and tasting experience.
