Demitasse is a restaurant interior design with speciality coffee at its core. This is exemplified by the coffee mod bar in prime position on the minimalistic front counter. There is a timeless, classic look to the interior design of this sophisticated coffee shop which is well suited to its location on Wimbledon High Street. It draws its influences from modern wine bars and the elegant tea rooms of high-end hotels as much as it does from coffee shop design itself. The clean lines of its minimalist aesthetic are enhanced by the use of high-quality materials matched with refined details; giving it an air of restrained luxury. Despite being a fairly deep interior, it has a light and airy feel; with pale marble flooring throughout and a large skylight above the dining area at the back. Here, the soothing green foliage of the indoor plants helps to create a cool, relaxed atmosphere; while large antiqued mirrors reflect the cloud-like textures of the Venetian plaster on the adjacent walls.
These wall finishes appear elsewhere in the restaurant interior design tying everything together. In addition, there is a run of backlit fluted oak panels interspersed with original artworks along the white wall that runs opposite to the bespoke front counter design where the fluting is replicated. The warm tones of the wood achieve a harmony with the muted hues of the custom furniture finishes; set off by brass highlights that appear in such things as the lights above the counter and the subtle brand marque on the wall behind. The coffee shop interior opens onto an outside seating area through oak framed bi-fold doors that can be concertinaed back in good weather enhancing the inside/outside feel echoed by the skylight at the rear.
