The look and feel of the restaurant’s interior is just as important as the food served and service offered. Like anything else in life, trends in restaurant design change, and in 2020, you can expect any one of the following trends to take front and centre in this realm.

Multi-Functional, Compact Furniture

The world of furniture is trending towards furniture pieces that are more compact and multi-functional in nature. This is particularly true for spaces that are much smaller in size yet still require enough accommodation for patrons without sacrificing business. Restaurant designers are accommodating this need by seeking out pieces that are sleeker in design and may serve more than one purpose to maximize on space, particularly when it comes to seating.

More Opulent Pieces

There are different types of eateries and bars, but even more casual ones appreciate the sophistication of more luxurious pieces that speak to the establishment’s level of professionalism and sense of style. At Unichairs, we are proud to offer our designers our coveted Artiste Collection that boasts pieces adorned in stunning velvet fabrics and upholstery to satisfy the more extravagant palette without sacrificing comfort.

Eco-Friendly Design

More and more people are going green and are appreciating the part that they play in a more sustainable planet. As such, you’ll be seeing an increasing focus in eco-friendly restaurant design, including the use of reusable and renewable materials. As of late, we’re seeing a lot of warm woods, like bamboo, in furniture, walls, and flooring, as well as earth-toned and soft color palettes.


When minimalism may have been a long-lasting trend, we’re beginning to see a lot more “maximalist” style popping up in restaurant design, with restaurateurs using a mix of different textures, colors, fabrics, and layers of upholstery in their interiors.
