Seven Clans Casino | Thief River Falls, Minnesota | Interior Design Phase 1

Designs of the Thief River Falls Casino in Minnesota

In 2011, the Seven Clans Thief River Falls Casino, located in Thief River Falls Minnesota, signed with us to create interior décor designs for various areas within their property. Beginning with direction from the client and a unique color palette of midnight forest blues, amber hues and warm wood toned, we created a 3D, one-of-a-kind casino destination. Our custom themed décor package was designed to create a welcoming atmosphere and flow throughout the main casino gaming floor, cashier area, players club and Malt Shop. Stay tuned to see current updates on this project and how it all comes together.

Elements of design

Designs of nature themed casino interior

At I-5 Design and Manufacture, we specialize in the design, fabrication and installation process for casinos, restaurants, grocery stores, banks and more. Initially, we gather direction from our client in order to create the perfect, theme-based design that they are anticipating. Our in-house designers have years of experience in creating high-impact environments that reflect our customers needs, while coordinating with the space in a captivating and practical way. We assemble inspiration for our designs from a wide variety of sources; some of our most amazing designs were stimulated by nature. From rugged and weathered terrains, to vibrant and tropical islands, any color palette or element can be drawn from the diverse landscapes across the globe. Our lead designer, Dave Waters, is an expert at seeing these elements and translating them into décor items and finishes that create the ‘wow’ factor needed to enhance any space. Many times, based on the geographical location of a project, he will highlight parts that are common to the area, in order to give the venue a unique and exclusive feel. Whether you are looking to upgrade your facility, or create a brand new look, our design team can help you achieve your goals and create the perfect atmosphere.

The Rock Restaurant

Photos of the Rock Restaurant

For the interior and exterior decor of the Rock, our design team created a design based on adjectives given by the client. The challenge for this project was to create a look for the exterior, as well as for the interior, that used elements from the 60’s-70’s rock and roll time-period and combined it with a microbrewery wood fired pizza theme. The Rock was greatly upgraded with internally illuminated wall signs and interior signage. For the façade, we created a unique and retro look by using components such as corrugated metal sheeting behind the bulky channel letters, large wooden trusses supporting the structure, and a rustic metal overhang suspended by chains. Whatever kind of venue you may have, or design style that you want to create, I-5 Design and Manufacture can help you to create the perfect look and feel for your location.
