Commercial, Cafe, Hospitality & Office Furniture – Have a Seat

Nowadays, when someone picks a restaurant to go to, they aren’t only thinking about the food. The ambience, decor and overall feel of the place plays a major role. With so many restaurants around, and so many sharing the same cuisine, competition has never been higher. This is one of the main reasons a restaurant owner shouldn’t only focus on the food, but on the ambience as well.

When you are focusing on maintaining a ‘brand’ aesthetic, you need to ensure that what you create isn’t merely flashy and that it has some substance too. It’s crucial to keep a handle on quality while including designs and concepts that are trendy yet in sync with your restaurant concept. Your restaurant’s overall character consists of different intangible and tangible variations.

Latest Furniture Trends

Furniture is crucial in defining the character of your restaurant, and as the owner of the restaurant, you need to recognise which trends will work for you before you incorporate them into your plans. Here is a look at the latest trends in hospitality furniture in 2020.

1. Booth Seating

Most people favour booth seating over chairs. The former is more comfortable, which contributes to a cozy and comfortable dining experience. Both booths and banquettes have made a comeback in 2020, and this seating is luxurious and comfortable. It is also customisable and elegant, and there is a wide range of options to choose from.

The tufting technique will decide the look and shape of the booth seating. The different upholstery techniques commonly used include horizontal & vertical channel tufting, button-less tufting, single-line tufting, biscuit button tufting and of course the classic diamond tufting. You can choose a style that best suits your restaurant’s branding and complements the aesthetic of various other features and elements in that space.

2. Combination Materials

Up until last year, hospitality design trends focused on minimalism; but that is now changing, and the latest trends include the use of patterned prints and combination textiles. Mixed metals are being used as is detailed upholstery and many restaurateurs are adding bold accent pieces like elaborate bar stools and unique accent chairs that are statement pieces in their own right. It’s possible to create memorable furniture that’s indulgent and elegant all at once. Unique backgrounds are being seen with geometric and organic patterns making restaurant spaces Instagram-worthy.

3. Uniquely-Shaped Furniture

This is another trend that has been surfacing in many places—3D-style furniture, large eye-catching chairs’ design that beckons you to sink into them. Geometric shapes and architecturally inspired frames are another trend making an appearance everywhere. Some of these pieces are also being made in weather-resistant materials, making them suitable for outdoor settings. They are a great way to attract the attention of passers-by and give them a glimpse of what’s inside.

4. Nest Chairs

When it comes to the hospitality industry, the evolution in design styling and planning evolves at a rapid pace. Restaurants aren’t just places where people drop in for a quick bite. These are spaces where people socialise, host business meetings, co-work and gather to have fun. People are choosing to stay longer, which is great for business. The longer they stay at your restaurant, the more they spend, and you can benefit when you prioritise keeping your customers comfortable and happy.

While there are many new and latest trends, restaurant owners must realise that they can’t just blindly follow these trends. They need to see what styles and designs fit in with their brand and ensure that all the other features and installations fit in perfectly with the design aesthetic.

It’s also crucial to understand that you will not be switching your furniture or upholstery every year. So when selecting certain furniture pieces or designs, you need to keep this in view. Look for something that blends in well with the overall design theme of your restaurant, and of course, something that will look great for many years to come.

Furniture Selection Advice From Professionals

To get the right feel and look for your restaurant, one thing to consider is involving a professional designer.

They assist with style, decor, materials and recommend options according to your brief and budget.

They will also help you select the right furniture based on your functionality, styling, maintenance needs and your budget. This approach will help ensure that you get the kind of furniture that will truly uplift the look of your restaurant and be a value-add to the space.
