For decades, Salon Today’s Salon of the Year competition has celebrated the best in salon and spa design. For 2019, Salon Today has selected LaBelle Nail Bar in Ardmore, Pa., as its Nail Salon of the Year, celebrating its elegance and femininity. “The biggest challenge we faced was creating a modern design that did not conform to the traditional nail spa standard, which meant implementing new ideas for furniture, equipment, lighting, layout and design,” says owner Oanh Le. “We overcame this by hiring Michele Pelafas, Inc., an interior design company that specializes in salons.”

The plush pedicure stations were designed for the comfort of both the guest and the nail technician.

What sets the space apart are the small details that work together harmoniously. The vintage-style flooring contrasts in tone with the unique scroll back of the manicure stools and the softness of the pale gray Stella pedicure thrones. The chic reception area is glamourous, tailored, and luxurious with a fully upholstered reception desk and a chandelier that invites clients in. The pedicure seating is Le’s favorite design feature. From the fabric to the finishes, they were customized to her desire for comfort, style, and sophistication.

The curved, tufted reception desk and a chandelier add a graceful femininity.
