SFizio's was designed in a Northwest Contemporary Style. Warm wood tones, steel and glass with concrete block create clean simple lines throughout the space. The lumber used in the interior framing was all reclaimed from the previous restaurant, and the interior paneling is reclaimed old growth Douglas Fir from bleacher seating used in Stanford University's Basketball Arena. The fir was originally harvested in the Pacific Northwest and the material was supplied to us by Cascadia Forest Goods of Eugene.

The bentwood chairs used in the restaurant are 30-40 years old, manufactured by Thonet Originals and designed by Ray and Charles Eames. They were previously used in University dormitories across the US. Most of the restaurant has dimmers to create different moods with the added benefit of reducing electricity use. The dimming of a bulb by just 10-20% can extend the life of the bulb up to three times and also save as much as 50% in energy!
