The Standard Café


A harmonious space, with a minimalist narrative coupled with the refined period look, were the guidelines that Jean de Lessard - Designers Créatifs followed for The Standard Café in Westmount. The project coordinated by designer Alexa Adam focused on straight lines, with dark brass walls that create the feeling of greater size, while endowing it with a classic style. The free-floating vertical showcase, together with the white quartz worktop, a strong element - which combines with the centre tables and the armchairs, with pony hair-like fabric - confer grandeur to the space, and give a sense of period-inspired intellectual harmony. All elements contribute to give rhythm to this refined place.
