Bucharest, Romania, is home to an industrial pub that boasts elements of modern British design. Industrial design can sometimes seem cold and sterile, which is not ideal for a restaurant environment. This contemporary eatery manages to combine industrial design with warm and cozy accents.

'The Coco Pub' is a restaurant and bar that combines industrial design with wood and other modern accents. The pub has a masculine design, which is reflected by the sports memorabilia that lines the restaurant walls. While the restaurant appeals to sports fans, it offers a warm and cozy space that is welcoming to all patrons. The pub features diagonal wooden cladding and colorful accents that make the space more inviting. The result is an industrial pub with a contemporary twist.

The pub demonstrates how designers can play with textures and materials in unexpected ways in order to make a space more inviting.
