Exterior of Il Corso in Palm Desert, Calif.

Warm outdoor lighting highlights the beautiful stone facade of Il Corso, a restaurant in Palm Desert, Calif. Designer Chris Pardo gave the space a contemporary look with a few industrial elements to keep the design interesting.

Hanging Globe Lights in Il Corso Restaurant

Hanging globe-shaped pendant lights provide low, ambient lighting in the main dining area. Exposed ductwork and beams add a rough, industrial vibe to the otherwise contemporary design.

Il Corso Restaurant, Main Dining Area

Contemporary with industrial elements, the main dining area at Il Corso features reclaimed wood flooring and high ceilings with exposed ductwork and beams. Dark red dining chairs add a splash of color to the brown color palette. Globe-shaped lights hang from the ceiling to provide lovely ambient lighting.

Contemporary with industrial flair, the main dining area accommodates both intimate and big gatherings. A built-in, tufted banquette lines one side of the space for additional seating. Deep red chairs bring a splash of color to the mostly brown color scheme. Reclaimed wood floors, exposed ductwork and beams add edginess to the design.

There's ample seating at the bar area to enjoy a few cocktails and even dinner. A tufted, leather banquette built into the wall pairs with square wooden tables and red leather barstools to offer a casual place to enjoy food and drinks.

The main bar seats ten comfortably and features a large glass display that stores many bottles of liquor. The reclaimed wood ceiling complements the flooring in the main dining room.

Private Dining Room at IL Corso Restaurant

A private dining area away from the main dining room is perfect for business meetings or parties wanting privacy. Reclaimed wood doors slide to enclose the space for more privacy.

Exposed ductwork and ceiling beams bring an industrial vibe to the main dining room at Il Corso.
