Salvador Dali-Inspired Cafe – Lobster Telephone Anyone?

The Latvian interior design studio, Annvil has put surrealism and out-there invention on the menu with their Salvador Dali-inspired interior design for an eatery in Riga.

From the big pair of Mae West lips over the front entrance to a dramatic re-imagining of the dream sequence from Hitchcock’s Spellbound – with a forest eyes watching over you and your coffee –everything’s all very dream-like, all very Dali.

The café interior’s colour scheme is also inspired by Spanish master – dominated by strong blues and golds which echo the ‘brilliant blue skies and special gold light’ he associated with his beloved Costa Brava… ‘the most beautiful place on earth’.

Annvil’s trademark mix of sophistication and playfulness also shows in the way the fittings match the fixtures; with furniture featuring curved lines working with textured walls to create the type of sly optical illusions Dali often included in many of his works.

Examples of some of the best designs:
