Get the Look: A Brand New, Vintage Industrial Venue in Orange County

photo: Nathan Mueller for The Venue Report
For this edition of Get the Look, we’ve teamed up with Chairish to recreate a vintage, industrial venue we love in Orange County. The Harper is a cool indoor/outdoor venue that’s set in the heart of Costa Mesa, with walls of mirrors and a collected, eclectic atmosphere. There’s a lot to love about the space, from the cool grey-blue walls to the unfinished floors and brassy fixtures. If you’re considering making some changes to your at-home dining space, this spot could serve as inspiration central. 

Come along as we trove through antique mirrors, clean-lined chandeliers and finding the exact Harper dining chair. We’re recreating this space the best way we know how, via a shopping list that’ll take your space from zero to Harper in just the click of an “add to cart” button.

Lavender Fruit & Sundae Stemware

Love the color of these lavender-grey goblets! We’d steer clear of serving a beverage in them and instead use them for dessert. Think affogato or sorbet with sparkling rosé poured atop.
