Commercial furniture from GBN Primo is designed to purely serve a commercial market

Here at GBN Primo, we don’t just sell furniture for restaurants – we live and breathe it, too.

We’re experts in sofa seating for contemporary establishments and with the café or bistro look still extremely popular with European customers, it’s time to start considering why outdoor restaurant furniture and café standards are the ones you should be aiming for in 2018.

1.Know Your Customers

This should be a no-brainer for any restaurant or café – what do your customers want – cosy, informal, stylish or practical? Perhaps a mix of all of the above!

2.Look at Your Café Through Their Eyes

Consider yourself, for a moment, a visitor to your own café. What would make your experience perfect, at least in terms of seating and design? From pub interior design to sofa seating, it’s time to consider what you think – and know – works well for you.

3.Visit Other Cafés

Stuck for inspiration? While the internet is a great place to start in terms of hunting down restaurant interior design ideas, there’s no better way to see what works well than to visit the competition!

4.Think About Installing Sofas

Sofa seating is becoming increasingly popular with even the most formal of crowds – focus on comfort and class if you have space!

5.Keep in Tune With Your Cuisine

The furniture you use should complement your theme and your cuisine – consider whether fast food, for example, is likely to sit well with ornate furnishings!

6.Think About Communal Tables

Eating out is a social activity and you should always try and promote this! Whether indoor or outdoor seating is your focus, consider introducing round communal tables to increase the social factor.

7.Consider Booths

Booths are cosy and private – and if you have space, they can be an absolute boon for any pub interior design.

8.Make Outdoor Space a Feature

With good weather always just around the corner, there’s always opportunity for you to implement outdoor seating and make al fresco dining and drinking work for you.

9.Trends Are Fleeting

Pub interior design and furniture trends – no matter your theme nor cuisine – come and go very quickly indeed. Consider what’s important to your customers and don’t go full on-trend.

10. Always Buy Commercial Furniture
