Accent And Accessory Trends For Your Cafe – What’s Hot Right Now!

statement cafe wall art‘The Devil’s in the detail’ says the old adage and when it comes to styling a room then this certainly applies. The right accessories and touches can transform a room from dull and dreary into diverse and dynamic. By adding colour, texture and visual interests it can really bring the wow factor to your establishment without it costing you the earth. So with this in mind, lets take a look at what’s hot right now in the world of accents and accessories.


In 2014 everybody loves a bit of cold metal and this is reflected in the popularity of an industrial theme which has become a really huge style of late. That said, it isn’t just the feel and look of iron and steel, gold is also back en vogue and it brings with it a sense of subtlety and softness coupled with pure opulence. What works really well though is showcasing different metals together. Golds, coppers and brasses mixed with silver and aluminium. The heavy industrial look of iron together with the refinement of platinum or chrome. Try it, the effects can be quite amazing.


Yes, in 2014 vibrant colours are all the rage. From hot pinks and lime greens to electric blue and sunburst yellow. They work particularly well when used sparingly as accent colours against a plain background. Polypropylene café chairs for example come in a wide range of vibrant colours. Or how about cushions, wall hangings, or even place settings. Do whatever it takes but the more vibrant the colour, the better it’s going to look.

Tribal and ethnic pieces

From Indian tapestries to African carvings, tribal and ethnic pieces work really well in a themed design. What’s more, they work particularly well when they’re mixed and matched. How about a combination of Asian Buddha statues, African rush masks and Indian trinkets. It’s sure to turn heads.

Statement art

It might be a little pricey, but one large statement piece is all it takes to turn your ‘so-so’ café into a trendy place. When it comes to wall art, go big and bold. How about a large keyboard or a six foot high lime green clock with black hands. Whatever takes your fancy, the quirkier and the more outlandish, the better.
