In this blog post, we’re taking a look at what lies ahead in terms of 2020 interior design and café furniture trends. If you’re considering renovating or remodelling your café, it pays to know what you should be looking for to stay ahead of the competition and be on trend.

Do remember, though, that trends serve as a source of inspiration and don’t have to be closely followed. Simply pick out a couple of ideas that are to your taste and will enhance your space. So, without further ado, let’s dive in and take a look.

Neutral shades

Neutral shades are set to be big this year but shouldn’t be viewed as boring. Neutral shades with warm undertones such as cream, beige, and off-white can lighten your space and make it appear bigger while accent colours can make your design pop.


2020 interior design and café furniture trends are going to incorporate plenty of texture to prevent the use of neutral shades making the overall appearance look flat. Top stitching and looped yarns add a feeling of warmth and luxury and can feature in soft furnishings such as blinds, curtains, and cushions as well as sofas and tub chairs.

Leather, suede, and velvet are all great materials for adding a touch of class as well as texture.

2020 interior design and café furniture trends – Keep it natural

While natural materials aren’t exactly a new concept for 202, they continue to be popular.


Sustainability has been a buzz word for some time now and consequently eco-friendly furniture is likely to feature more regularly. Think of materials such as concrete, bamboo, and re-cycled plastics in a variety of eye-catching designs.

Mixed metals

We’re also expecting to see more mixed metal furniture emerge. Traditionally, designers have tended to stick to just one type of metal in one space but using a variety of mixed metals is a trend that’s on the rise. Think of metals such as bronze, silver, copper, and brass but don’t mix more than 3 together, or the result could look chaotic. Top tip – silver and brown metals look fab together.

Natural light

Our 2020 interior design and café furniture trends tips also include natural light. Although you may not have large windows that let in glorious amounts of natural light, you can look at using a variety of lighting to mimic the feel of natural light flooding in.

Think about using layers of different lighting such as task lighting and ambient lighting but stay clear of harsh LED lighting. Remember, it’s all about enhancing the customer experience.


Finally, the last tip is to cut the clutter. There’s nothing worse than walking into a venue and not knowing where to look. Colours which clash with each other, tables too close together, and an overload of accessories can confuse a customer’s sensory perception. If your establishment is large, then consider zoning certain areas so customers know right away where they should be.
