5 cafe venues which have opened recently, have really captured the flora and foliage trend in very different ways.
What has Mallow, Giolato, EL&N, The Juice Smith, Sunday in Brooklyn and Hanko have in common? This can be best explained as cafe interior design fuelled by 'plant power'. An explosion of flowers and green leaves can be found in various quantities in the decor of all these venues. Yet whilst these venues have a similar theme, each one has given it their own style.
We looked at each scheme in detail to find out the core ingredients for a successful cafe interior design that captures natural beauty and looked at a range of furniture options in different budget ranges to discover what could look really effective.
Mallow, London Bridge Interior Design : This plant based restaurant interior reminds us of pink blossom on a spring day. The colour scheme captures light pink, bright pink and a bold deep blue. The ceiling of the cafe is even painted blue. The furniture materials are a variety of natural materials including light wood, marble and brass.
The furniture chosen by Mallow captures solid natural beech wood in a simple and minimalist style, found in the Bette bar stool and Bentwood side chair. However, there are similar products which would also capture this look such as the Folk Wood bar stool or Boo bar stool.
PRICE RANGE OPTIONS
To capture this look at different price ranges we looked at the different finishes, materials and fabrics at different price points:
Another plant based restaurant, whose interior design captures the natural tranquil beauty of plants, is The Juice Smith in Cobham. In contrast, this has a totally different vibe and take on plant power interior design.
The Juice Smith, Cobham: bold green plants, contrast the silver chairs and white walls.
We love the bold green leaves used in The Juice Smith Cobham and seeing these contrasted with silver and grey fabrics. This venue has a clean fresh feel about it. Comfortable, natural and healthy.
There are a number of EL&N cafes who we have worked with and each one includes an exciting explosion of pink flowers, making this the signature look for this iconic brand. Ultra modern furniture complements this kitsch look which can't help but grab attention and stand out. Quality pink leathers and velvets are used against marble and plastics.
Hanko is both a florist and champagne bar. So, it is very fitting that this venue is surrounded by the most stunning flowers which can't help but make you feel that you have arrived somewhere very special.
We love the subtle foliage used at Giolato to offset the pastel furnishings and decor choices.
