0 Which End Is Up? D'Espresso Coffeeshop

You're probably tilting your head and/or your computer back and forth trying to figure out what the heck is going on in the photo above. That's because Eugene Kagansky's newly-opened coffee bar has been flipped onto its side -- literally. At D'Espresso, located just one block away from the New York Public Library at Bryant Park, the walls looks like they're the floor and vice versa.
Glazed tiles printed with images of books create the illusion of bookshelves tilted sideways, running along the ceiling, down the rear wall and onto the floor. Another wall is covered in herringbone-patterned oak flooring. And the spherical glass lights jut out horizontally from behind the bar, rather than hanging from the ceiling.
