Get The Look With Canto Corvino

Posted on Mar 17, 2016 by

For this week’s Get The Look post, we turn our attention to modern Italian restaurant, Canto Corvino. Serving mouth watering dishes such as saltmarsh lamb ribs roasted on a layer of smoked aubergine and sesame, the establishment has received many rave reviews.

However, it’s not just the food that is gaining attention – the interior is quite a sight to behold too.”Here is a genuinely beautiful room with warehouse and industrial connotations that still remains warm and elegant,” wrote top restaurant critic Grace Dent in the London Evening Standard recently. Situated in the heart of one of London’s top food destinations, Spitalfields, the Italian eatery showcases a beautiful interior design scheme that merges industrial and vintage with a smart modern finish. Take a look below to see how they’ve made it work.

Serving as the centrepiece of the premises, the filing cabinet style bar is made of reclaimed distressed timber and is reminiscent of a bank or old legal offices. It has a vintage feel that is at once subtle and elegant. The perfect setting to enjoy one of Canto Corvino’s amazing Romeo cocktails with gin, elderflower, lime juice, fresh kiwi, cucumber and apple juice.

The Canto Corvino bar immediately called to our minds this superb Industrial Apothecary Drawer Unit from Vincent & Barn. It’s a practical and sturdy unit that would look equally at home in a living room or home office.

If you simply want to achieve the appearance of stacked filing drawers, this fantastic wallpaper from the experts Decor Wallpaper will create the right illusion. It can be adapted to a narrow alcove or create a full-blown feature wall; the monochrome version of this wallpaper will catch everyone’s eye on any scale.

This Apothecary Cabinet from Cambrewood is another great option!

Sitting at one of Canto Corvino’s bench seat tables, you can’t help but admire the striking yellow industrial light hanging above. It adds a bold splash of colour alongside the vintage white tiles and warehouse style windows.

For a similar big-impact industrial style light, we recommend Original BTC’s Titan Size Pendant.

Elsewhere in the restaurant, exposed brickwork and room length metal mesh screens create a strong yet refined industrial aesthetic.

But back at the bar (naturally!), it’s the bar stools that have caught our eyes. Their understated contemporary design combines a polished wooden seat with an elegant metal frame.

Graham and Green have produced an equally simple and striking design, which will suit any kitchen breakfast bar.
