Just Desserts: Four furnishing styles for modern dessert cafés


With the weather warming up, its is only natural to find yourself swapping a cake for some frozen yoghurt and coffee for a frappe. Taking inspiration from the warmer months ahead, we have put together a collection of ideas for creating a variety of interior styles for a modern dessert café. Taken from cities around the world, we highlight the options and possibilities to recreate a similar ambience with furniture pieces from the Spaceist range.


Inspiration: La Piadina Cambados, Cambados, Spain

La Piandina Cambados brings together a playful twist on ice cream with a classical Italian recipe combining beer and ice cream. A pure white palette infused with accents of bold and bright neon colours, the simplicity of the interior style gives this dessert venue a modern and stylish appeal. The interior is divided into two spaces; one offers ice creams and is intended for shorter footfall, whilst another more cosier atmosphere has been created for coffee and drinks intended for longer staying visitors. Both spaces complement the chic interior with a blend of black and white with a permeable and artificial ‘wall’ dividing both spaces.
