I love how this cafe has used recycled materials to create authentic texture. A contemporary wall treatment created by artfully combining a furniture maker’s wood scraps. By Anne-Sophie Poirier for the Slowpoke Cafe, Melbourne Australia.
The fireplace surround is steel panels attached with rivets and the mantel is an actual I-beam. After it was installed, we did a black patina over the entire thing to give it a rustic, yet sleek look. The hearth is poured concrete.
