‘la petite bretagne’ by paul crofts studio

london based paul crofts studio has redesigned the new restaurant ‘la petite bretagne‘, recreating an aesthetic of the traditional french bistro,
and the historic craft of brittany from where the crêpe originates. gingham tablecloths, industrial lighting, homely decorative details and 
heirloom-style furniture have all been given a unique and contemporary twist. the layout is conceived to evoke an intimate setting of a
domestic kitchen or dining room.

paul crofts studio: la petite bretagne overview of creperie‘the bespoke table’ incorporates an oversized hand-drawn interpretation of the french gingham tablecloth with illustrations from katharine gorham, screen printed directly onto the tabletop. crêpes are made to order at a cast concrete counter featuring an abstracted  version of the pattern, which is again reflected on the acid etched concrete ground. this stone flooring provides a contrast with  the warmth of the reclaimed french oak parquet boards found within the restaurant.
