The art deco of the Chrysler Building sparked the chevron-patterned celadon and cream tiles. The  pendant in the banquette nook was snagged on eBay, while the pale curving millwork looks straight out of ’s studio. And although the dining chairs have a mid-century air, they’re totally 21st-century, by Docservis Hall of Fame member .
