Nothing brightens up your restaurant design like adding a pop of vibrant colour. It’s simple and effective, and for 2015, it’s bang on trend. Whatever your style, rustic, industrial or classic, there’s an affordable way to add interest and brightness to the mix in Café Ideas’ range of beautiful and functional restaurant and café furniture.

Seeing Red

Red is always a popular choice for restaurant furniture, associated as it is with warmth and comfort. The Nardi collection features tables, chairs and combination seating sets in a bright poppy red, plus bar stools with a bold red, high-back seat.

Beautiful bright reds are especially effective when combined with industrial styling, which is one of the reasons Café Ideas has added it as a colour option in our own industrial furniture range. Choose from bar stools, tables and chairs that combine crimson powder-coated steel with teak surfaces and backs.

Seating in Café Ideas’ industrial range is stackable and designed for indoor and outdoor seating. Robust enough for heavy-duty usage, this café and restaurant furniture range will be a functional part of your restaurant design for years to come.

Perfect Pastels

Bright colours are a bold visual statement, particularly primary colours such as red, yellow and blue, but another popular choice among furniture designers this year has been to combine softer pastel shades like soft sages, mint greens and sky blues with galvanised metal and wood. This works especially well to soften the harder edges of industrial design trends, but it also works brilliantly for outdoor seating areas, where the practical issue of fading caused by exposure to UV light can be balanced by opting for muted tones in the first place.

Mix and match different pastel shades to add interest, and look for dark hardwood and leather for a tone and textural contrast, rather than lighter beech and oak.

Paged Meble

Paged Meble has produced an array of seating options in bright colour schemes this season. Their offerings are like opening up a box full of your favourite chocolates, all wrapped up in tempting papers. As well as neutral classics, you can choose from their bright colour schemes for chairs and bar stools, including hot pinks, bold blues and perfect purples.

If full-on colour is too much for you, look for features like bright piping on neutral fabrics. The contrast adds a touch of luxury and detail. As a result, this style works especially well for clubs and hotels, where a luxurious end appearance needs to come in a package that can withstand wear and tear.
