Timber furniture with a rustic industrial vibe
Timber furniture has long been a mainstay of cafe life largely due to its versatility both in appearance and function. It brings out a natural feel that makes it a great complement to industrial design.
Industrial design itself encompasses cast iron, pipework, and brick walls for a look that’s simultaneously modern and rustic.
Tolix chairs fit perfectly into this cafe furniture trend – particularly metal Tolix chairs that have warm timber seats. We’re also loving hairpin chairs and stools with their quirky legs that are shaped just like a hair accessory.
Cafe Furniture Trends – Communal furniture
The rise of communal dining aligns with the trend for open uncluttered spaces ad allows cafes and restaurants to maximise their floor spaces and create more of a social vibe.
Millennials, especially like communal dining since it addresses their love of socialising while grazing over extended periods of time.
Naturally not all of your customers will want to sit at a large table with a group of people they don’t know, so it makes sense to offer an alternative by way of traditional table and chair sets or even booths.
Mixed furniture is one of the cafe furniture trends from the past that is definitely back – or did it ever go away? It’s a simple concept that entails mixing and matching furniture in such a way that it looks funky and fresh yet whimsical and homely.
The key here is not to go too crazy or you’ll create a look that is chaotic. Instead, we suggest keeping your tables one design and either mixing and matching chairs by way of colour or style.
For instance, consider using just blue chairs but in a variety of styles. Alternatively, use the same style of chairs throughout, but pick 2 or 3 colours to place around your tables. If you opt for this method of mixed furniture, then keep your wall colour neutral.
