This week’s Restaurant City update takes us to Italy’s, 5th largest region, Tuscany. Come and experience a land filled with tradition, charm, beauty and a land that was also the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. Upon visiting your restaurant, your customers can expect to experience that easygoing Italian way of life found so alluring and desirable, la dolce vita (“the sweet life” or “the good life”). This quality is indisputably linked to the Italians’ instinctive knowledge of how to drink and eat well
The natural textures and colors of stone, wood and water distinguishes Tuscan exterior decor, giving your restaurant a feeling of warmth and welcoming your guests to come inside! The Tuscany Cafe Entrance overflows with hardy climbers, a Rustic Sign, and Grape Trestles. Using this entrance is a perfect way to create a welcoming atmosphere for your customers.

Add a rustic touch to your restaurants and enhance your customers dining experience with the hand crafted Willow Chairs (made from real willow branches), the Home Crafted Table and Breton Chair or perhaps add some color with the Blue Checkered Table

Stunning in both traditional Tuscan style and function with a natural look, these all double as attractive tables and shelves with convenient storage and counter space. Tuscan shelving is typically open and without doors in order to maintain the idea of openness. This is typically done to display the dishes and other pieces inside the shelves.

Decorating colors in Tuscany are warm colors for the most part. These colors are directly inspired by nature and sometimes are further accented with splashes of red. These Brick and Plaster Wallpapers, accompanied by two shades of walnut plank floors put together in your restaurant, will help you to achieve a traditional warm, Tuscan feel in your restaurant.
