Cafes and restaurants are always on the watch for the latest trends and Instagram-worthy features to entice more customers through their doors. Trends notoriously change fashion very quickly but here, at Cafe Furniture Melbourne, we have the knowledge and experience to help our customers decorate and furnish their venues while staying abreast of current trends. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at what’s hot and what’s not.
Choose your paint wisely
Pale colours are so yesterday and 2020 is set to be the year of rich blues and cool greens. Fresh tones will set the stage for many cafes and restaurants, helping attract more customers through the doors. If your café needs a lick of paint, blues and greens go well with timber furniture, keeping the Scandi style in fashion.
In answer to the ever-dwindling space that café owners and restauranteurs find themselves dealing with, furniture has evolved in design to be more compact yet functional. Bar seating is still hugely popular with compact tables and chairs set in small alcoves and tight corners, maximising the floor space. Long benches and banquettes are also on the cards, helping make a more communal and social space.
Out with the industrial look
Exposed beams and white walls will be replaced with earthy, more natural tones. Instead of last year’s charcoal grey, expect to see bright colours and a variety of textures, including mix-matched crockery and modernistic artwork. Neon signs and quirky lighting will also be popular, especially as Instagram features, so try and make your décor photo friendly.
The urban jungle is here to stay
Just as many trends disappear and are never seen again, some are able to withstand time, and the urban jungle is one of them. You’ll see the colour green in every nook and cranny from potted plants to palm printed wallpaper – anything to bring the feeling of nature indoors. With the rise of veganism and a more natural approach to food production, we feel that this trend is certainly here to stay.
At Café Furniture Melbourne, we’re passionate about helping customers furnish their cafes and restaurants to make the most of their valuable space. Whether you need a hand in selecting furniture at a great price or you’re in need of some design and décor tips, we’re here whenever you need us.
