Restaurant Business – How to design and decorate a restaurant
A true reflection of its identity, a restaurant’s decor needs to deliver an unforgettable experience, along with impeccable comfort. From its interior design, through to the kitchen and the furniture on the outdoor terrace, each space should be beautiful and functional to facilitate customer and staff traffic flow. In bistros, riverside cafés, or brasseries, just like in Michelin-starred establishments, the rules of the game are changing: kitchens are on display, in performance mode, tables are shared, and spaces are opening up to mix together a variety of atmospheres. Whether it's intimate or theatrical, a restaurant's ambience enhances what's on the menu!
The 100% cotton apron from Canadian label DAHLS** is entirely handmade in Montreal. Minimal in style, sustainable, and available in a multitude of colors (camel, neutral, navy blue, olive, black, indigo), it features cowhide straps which, over time, promise to take on a slight patina. Simplicity and sophisticated details are the name of the game.

MINI / MIDI BOX crates
True to its concept, the POP CORN label redirects and reinvents market crates with the Midi Box: a sorting crate in bold, confident colors. Inspired by crates that we usually see in market stalls or at neighborhood grocers, this box that comes in flashy colors quickly becomes a stand-alone decorative accessory, perfect for the kitchen, on a counter, or as shelving units. It's an accessory that offers infinite possibilities.
HIGH RISE glasses and jug
The need to optimize space often opens the way to clever solutions. And here we have one, with High Rise, a collection of stackable pitchers and glasses in borosilicate glass, designed by Keiji Takeuchi for Italian brand ICHENDORF MILANO. It’s a clever set that allows waitstaff to carry a pitcher and glasses to the table in just one hand, sure to save both time and space.
