You might be tempted to think that it's the good looking models holding their summery, fruity drinks that make this restaurant cover photo stand out. We at Commercial Silk Int'l and our live plant service
division Plantscape, Inc., think it's the Bamboo trees -- not that we're biased or anything.
The Bamboo trees you see on this recent Minnesota Monthly cover were recently installed in the new restaurant concept Cafeteria
in Uptown Minneapolis, a trendy post-college neighborhood known for it's vibrant nightlife. Determined to create a beach-like atmosphere on a busy city rooftop, Cafeteria proprietors sourced Plantscape, Inc. for Bamboo trees to compliment natural wood benches, umbrellas, and other touches that make for a laid back outdoor atmosphere.
[more]Over the years we've been very fortunate to work with new and innovative restaurants and hotels throughout the world, both indoors and outdoors. A few projects on the artificial side include silk Boxwood mats on the pool walls
of Prime Hotel in Miami, Boxwood cabanas
for the Mondrian, and a giant Banyan tree and a decorative twig ceiling art
for a rooftop bar and lounge in San Diego.
Cafeteria, in our minds, is another great example of how the right plants can help create a vibrant new restaurant concept. It's safe to say that without us they never would have landed the cover of Minnesota Monthly -- right?
