Trend in Resto Decor

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've noticed a design trend in many food service and food retail operations recently. Many, Many new  restaurants are using lots of reclaimed wood from old barns and such to panel walls, fashion table tops and banquette seating.

Am I the only one that is getting totally sick of it?

There are some great restaurants near me where I love to dine, but I getting sick of snagging my clothes on rough hewn wood and getting splinters in my butt and elbows whenever I sit down.

 

Can we please move past this? You can serve farm to table food without having to turn the dining room into a barn, you know.

Oh my , I'm so with you on that point.

Another pet peeve for me is having to read my menu on a chalkboard . I liked the idea when it first came out but give it a bit of a break now.

Will it be Q cards next ? *shudders*

Maybe it's just me.

Here's another-paying top dollar to dine farm-to-table and being served beverages in Mason Jars?!?!? 

Sheesh!

I used to struggle to make ends meet, well, I still do, but then it necessitated the mason jar thing. Now-please give me a frikkin glass to drink from!

Well, the mason jars catch all that beautiful light from the bare lightbulbs. Anybody remember the odious chain, Mother Tuckers? Twenty years latter and that out of the box "homespun" decor is now the cool thing...kinda funny really.
