Special Nonexistent Furniture

Staycation style inspired by bars and restaurants

Some of the most creative looks and colour palettes come from hot new bars and restaurants, which offer interior designers the chance to push creative boundaries. So next time you're seeking some fresh inspo, look beyond the domestic.  Add some of our favourites to your style menu, then browse all our Dining & Kitchen Furniture and Staycation series.

Sketch2

Our head of styling Jessica Bellef fell in love with Sketch on her last trip to London, and it's easy to see why. Paris-based architect and designer India Mahdavi's striking fitout combines pink velvet banquettes and original David Shrigley drawings on the walls.

HenryD

Super stylist Sibella Court is responsible for the Henry Deane, a contemporary cocktail lounge that sits perched on top of Sydney's historic Hotel Palisade. You may not be able to recreate the Harbour Bridge backdrop at home, but it's easy to be inspired by the mix of blush leather, rattan, marble and brass.

paperDaisy2

Brisbane interior designer Anna Spiro's quirky, original style abounds in Paper Daisy, the award-winning restaurant at boutique hotel Halcyon House on the NSW North Coast. A gallery wall of vintage artwork contrasts with bold marine blues, and original touches are everywhere – the perfect lesson in how to do coastal without the cliches.

Coucou3

New York's hottest reservation at the moment is the so Frenchy so chic Le Coucou in SoHo, for the food as well as the glamorous world created by star design team Roman & Williams. A wall mural, stunning metal chandeliers and velvet seating in dusty tones set the mood.

Banksii

Vermouth bar Banksii is one of the latest openings at Sydney's new Barangaroo precinct, with interiors by restaurant design heavy hitters Luchetti Krelle. Light and bright with grand proportions, it's a modern take on old-world elegance.

Dolphin

Sydney interior designer George Livissianis is the interior designer behind Sydney hotspots including The Apollo, Cho Cho San, Billy Kwong and Surry Hills pub The Dolphin Hotel. It's monochrome yet anything but vanilla, with wrapped walls, exposed brick, banquettes clad in graffiti-style designs by artist Beni Single and hanging bare globes.

ApolloGinza

Livissianis has also made his mark on Tokyo, fitting out the Ginza branch of Greek diner The Apollo. If you're a lover of concrete surfaces, pin this to your dining room mood board as a lesson in how to give this look warmth and elegance.

UglyDuckling

This Melbourne Bar may be named The Ugly Duckling, though it's anything but thanks to beautifully crafted timber joinery, a soft colour palette and plenty of greenery and light. It's the handiwork of acclaimed Melbourne studio Hecker Guthrie.

Leos

“1950s Beverly Hills meets Manhattan club” is how designers Ken Fulk and Jon de la Cruz describe the look they dreamed up for Leo's Oyster Bar in San Francisco. If rattan and tropical prints are on your style menu, take note.
