If your café, restaurant or bistro is in desperate need of a make-over then what better way to do it than with a change of furniture. It really can make all the difference and if you choose wisely, can put your establishment firmly on the map. Whether it’s trendy outdoor tables and chairs that will turn heads and get ‘bums on seats’ or cool and dependable indoor furniture that fits perfectly with your style or design, the right furniture can make a huge impact. Here at Cafe Solutions we take a close look at some of the best types of furniture that’s trending right now!
Why have one material when you can have two? Yes you’ve guessed it chairs and tables in multiple materials are right on trend for summer 2014 and if chosen well can really make a statement of intent. Light beechwood and aluminium for example is a great combination that gives off a subtle Mediterranean feel. Try combining them with some simple aluminium tables for a sophisticated look. If being whisked off to the south of France doesn’t take your fancy then how about funking it up with a polypropylene/aluminium combination? Polypropylene seating is no longer that dull grey colour you used to get in school. Nowadays it comes in some fantastic vibrant colours and works really well with the cool simplicity of aluminium. Be daring and go for bold colours. Try deep purples and lime greens for that fresh funky feel.
The tub chair was once the epitome of those stuffy members-only gentlemen’s clubs that the well-to-do used to frequent in a bygone age. However right now they’re making a come back in a big way. Retro tub chairs add a touch of sophisticated luxury to any café and are perfect for anyone wanting to kick back and relax with a latte or two
Chill out zones
Speaking of ‘kicking back and relaxing…chill out zones are very much ‘the way to go in 2014 and are the perfect place where people can come and relax, read a newspaper, browse the internet and meet friends – all with a great cup of coffee! Comfortable sofa’s, lounge chairs and coffee tables in rich colours and wood give a warm and welcoming feel. Why not add floor rugs, a newspaper/book stand, and even some soft table lighting to set the scene?
