Making Canteen’s Cool Again!

March 12, 2013

I don’t know about you but when someone says canteen design I immediately shudder and get flashbacks back to my school days, lots of noise, uncomfortable chairs, splinters in the table and nasty food or I think about a hospital canteen, either of which don’t exactly scream “awesome design”. Well thankfully in large part to today’s feature project the next time I hear the word canteen I may indeed think of awesome design other than all of the negatives above.

The new Canteen in Covent Garden was designed by Hackney based studio Very Good & Proper. Serving the best in British cuisine the restaurant has a distinctive British flavor and uses many vintage items to create that vintage chic look we love so much, the design is wicked, the textures, the patterns, the lighting, the branding and the gorgeous furniture pieces all come together perfectly to create a canteen that I would definitely love to eat at, it is just so very cool!
