Are you loving the fresh, clean look of this cafe, too? Then let us help you get a similar restaurant look for less! We've hand-selected some furniture items you'll love, and we've recommended some décor pieces that will be fun and easy to create, while giving you a nature-inspired bistro design.
We recommend pairing our natural butcher block table tops with our sturdy x-style table bases. How about a few small 24" X 30" tables, each with two of our French cafe style Viktor chairs? They are similar to the popular TOLIX® chair...but at a much more affordable price! We also have industrial chic bar stools that match. These are standard bar height, so use at a 42" tall counter or as high top table seating.
As far as decorations go, why not have one of your staff members or creative friends go outside and snap a few photos? Nature shots, such as a green field, a shoreline, or a wooded area will look great printed on canvas, and you can use a service like Shutterfly to order your new wall art. We're also big fans of potted herbs, which are not just pretty but can actually help you become a little more sustainable with your cooking. In addition, we found an awesome hardwood clock on CustomMade.com that we think would be the perfect functional décor piece for your wall! Don't let our limited imaginations stop you, though. Look around for inspiration pieces that speak to you!
Please note: While we see restaurant design as part of selling furniture, we are not restaurant designers. We're just having some fun by providing you inspiration pages that showcase the furniture we sell. After all, good restaurant design shouldn't have to come at a tall price. As long as you see our ideas as just that, our ideas, and not a professional recommendation, then we'll be fine.
