Coinciding with the modern progression toward ethically produced and locally sourced food, many restaurants are communicating their dedication to high quality food through rustic restaurant interiors. In creating an atmosphere that recalls images of a rural lifestyle, whether through wooden fixtures or murals that mirror vintage drawings, restaurants are able to align their brand with locavore values held by artisan producers.

The pattern of rustic restaurant interiors also falls in line with a progression toward sustainable construction practices and materials, which has made timber the go-to resource for fixtures, facades and furniture.

In designing an environment that inspires a mental connection to home cooking and farm-to-table values, restaurateurs can ensure that the values of the brand are clear to the consumer, specifically the emphasis on quality ingredients and sustainably sourced produce.
