Faire Opens in Cameron Village Raleigh, NC
Faire, the latest concept from our partnership with Eschelon Experiences opens in Cameron Village.
In October 1853, the North Carolina State Agricultural Society held the first ever NC State Fair near the intersection of Oberlin Road and Clark Avenue in Raleigh. A few relics from this era, like the Raleigh Little Theater, Rose Garden, and Horse Track Alley, still survive near there today.
Redefining Raleigh dining in 2014, in this same location, is Faire.
Faire, which in French means “to make”, combines international culinary influences with traditional “southern fare” for steaks, seafood, and other classic dishes.
Our design for Faire references the mid-century roots of the Cameron Village area. We have drawn our color palette from popular textiles and interior trends from the 1940’s and 50’s, and selected “Eames-era” furniture with a modern-day construction. Many custom elements have been built specifically for the space to give it a one-of-a-kind aesthetic, and to ensure it is a place that patrons will remember.
Our product team, which was responsible for the interior design and detailing, collaborated with our graphic + branding team, which developed the brand identity, menu design, and signage.
Faire leverages a rich combination of vintage details, modern textures, and rhythmic patterns that add up to an open, optimistic space that’s all about comfort and style. This aesthetic, combined with a nod to the site’s historical significance, delivers a dining experience that is truly unique to the Raleigh area.
