Nature in abundance
One of the most used elements in the interior decoration of gastronomic premises in recent times has been green walls, vertical gardens and plants hanging from ceilings. Thus, plants have become a great trend in recent years, since they provide a pleasant and fresh air in the environment.

Art deco and natural style
Two of the main trends in the decoration of gastronomic premises in these years are based on art deco and naturalness. These styles affect the furniture and its materials. For example, the natural style bets on natural materials such as wood, wicker, rattan or iron. As for the colors, the natural colors of the material itself, or tones such as brown, olive green, earth, reddish, or beige, are also chosen. In addition, the materials can be combined with each other, such as iron and wood chairs.
As for the art deco style, the furniture points to metal or marble structures, in bright and golden tones. The chairs of this style usually have a back, armrests and seats upholstered in old-looking fabrics, such as velvet; in strong colors such as maroon, red, blue, gold and green, among others.
The classics never go out of style! Using classic-style chairs and furniture is also a trend. For example, wooden chairs upholstered in leather, with a worn style; and many times they are not all the same, but they are intended to be of different shapes and colors to generate greater impact. For example, half of the chairs of one type and the other half of another type are placed at the same table. Moreover, if the size of the table allows it, you can put up to three different types, or even each chair is of a different type. The opposite of most other styles.
