Advice for a cafe room.

#1salmonjamPosted 8/18/2013 5:42:50 PM
I'm making an outdoor style cafe with the Ivy Wall wallpaper and a kind of grey stone floor. I've got a dessert case, all of the coffee accessories from Brewsters, and custom QR menus, but I'm completely stumped as to what kind of furniture I should use. Any ideas? Are there any other items that go well in a cafe setting? Maybe the cash register?

What kind of atmosphere are you going for?

Outdoor, open-air style. Paris or Rome. I think custom alpine furniture looks good for an indoor cafe, but it doesn't look good with what I'm going for.

There's something called a cupid bench or something that I got that looks pretty good in the room, but it'd be better if it was a chair and not a bench. Are there any white iron tables and chairs? Or a table with an umbrella that is not the beach table?

I forgot to mention that I also have the mannequin with the barista outfit, and the big ice cream cone lamp.

I'm mainly looking for advice on tables and chairs (perhaps redone by Reese), and maybe some kind of counter for the barista to stand behind. The only counter I've seen is from the gorgeous set, and I don't have access to that yet.

I would recommend going with the exotic chair and the exotic end table. They look kind of outdoor-ish. The cabana chair could also work, but doing tours to get them would be tedious.

I just checked, those can't be customized to white unfortunately. Sorry.

The exotic or the cabana? Either way, they don't necessarily have to be white. Just something that looks nice with the Ivy Wall. Thanks for the advice though, I do believe I have the exotic chair and table in my catalog, so I'll try it out!

Try using the Brewsteroids as servers/waiters :D

Oh that's cool, I've had the exact same idea ! But it's indeed not easy to find the perfect match between furnitures... The bird cage from the princess set may go very well with the Cupidon bench if you decide to use it. The main problem is the tables ; I think I'll go with lovely end table to begin with until I find better. I just hope I can refurbish it :)

Have you visited Hitokui ? They have a nice café there, not exactly in the style you want but it can be some good inspiration :)

Now I think about it, is a brewsteroid a Brewster on steroids ?

I'm planning to use the classic end table (1x1 circular one) with exotic chair
