Ever thought about having famous artwork in your cafe but don't have the wall space? This may be the alternative you are looking for!
CafeTableTops.comis beginning to offer to make your coffee shop or café into an art gallery. Because there is so much competition in the food and drink industry it is important to do something special, unique enough that it will draw people back to tell their friends and coworkers about you too. This design idea places classic art work on your walls through reproductions (Coming Soon), and the same design pieces laminated on table tops.
The needs of each unique establishment vary; as a result, it is important to pick out the right designs for each coffee shop or restaurant. For instance, in a standard coffee shop where you may not have art savvy people, it is important that you choose your design pieces in one of three different ways. The way you choose them can make a huge difference in how you connect to your patrons. The first recommendation is that you choose pieces that people recognize such as works like Davinci's Mona Lisa, Michelangelo’s The Creation of Man or Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night.
The second recommendation is this: If you would like to do something more obscure like Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss or Peter Paul Ruben’s Hélène Fourment you should consider adding metal label plates to the frames or on the table tops they can put a faux plate onto the laminate. This is also true if you are adding a variety of abstract art like Paul Klee’s Magic Garden or Picasso’s L'Accordéoniste. The third recommendation to coffee shops or restaurants that don’t have a steady stream of art connoisseurs is to place art that works with the general décor or your restaurants’ basic theme or style in mind. For instance, Vincent van Gogh’s The Café Terrace on the Place du Forum, Arles, at Night would be a great touch for a European style café.
Now if you can count on your patrons being sophisticated art connoisseurs you can get away with not putting the engraving plates on the tables or even on the frames. In fact, it may even enhance your environment by leaving them off, creating great conversational pieces.
In addition to targeting which art pieces to use based on the general knowledge of your patrons, you will also want to consider the age appropriateness of your artwork. Nudity in the artwork may be objectionable to a family friendly restaurant or café. Moreover, you may want to consider sociological and psychological factors such as racial overtones and the mood of the overall piece. In reverse, those factors may be exactly what you are looking for. I am fond of a coffee shop in South Carolina named Keowee that does a wonderful job at bringing a warm multicultural environment to their coffee shop.
