London’s Latest Charm: The Folly | Restaurant Design
The trend of the “back to nature” look is prevailing in every design domain, thus you will notice how interiors have picked up the look a couple years back and developing towards the more laid back image year after year. Almost all fabric companies have introduced linen as the major background for their patterns. You will notice in “The Folly” located in London how natural and cozy the whole setting is. The concept behind it is allowing their customers to dine in a garden atmosphere away from the city’s hustle & bustle, with a creative combination of various aesthetical elements. The diversity in seating choices, lighting fixtures, actual trees, parquet flooring are what distinguish the design aspect of this restaurant.
The Folly, Drake & Morgan’s fourth bar, follows the success of the refinery, Drake & Morgan’s first bar in Southwark, which opened in September 2008, and The Parlour, which opened in the City in October 2009. Drake & Morgan were established in February 2008 and are looking to open their fifth bar in 2011.
Inspiration for The Folly has come from travelling the world, looking at the most successful venues in the USA and the Middle East "places where service culture is valued highly" and combining the best they have to offer with our own style.
The wine cellar and food seem amazing, such a concept is very tempting and much needed around in both Kuwait and Lebanon, you hear me restaurateurs?
