Ambiance added

Ambiance


From the coffee shop at the mall, I saw this amber looking lighting fixture hanging on the wall. It radiates a warm light highlighted by the broken glass effect on the lighting glass. You could say that it really helped in providing the ambiance.

Most of us love to lounge at coffee shops to surf and sip our favorite coffee blend. But generally (this is only my opinion), what attracts us and make us stay at those coffee shops is because of the ambiance. How cozy and relaxing it feels while sipping a hot cup of coffee...and this aura is partly generated by the impact of the lighting. Some even have special fine art lamps that warms up the entire atmosphere.

Just like in this shop, with this hinkley light fixtures type of lamp. I guess it makes the higher cost of coffee from this shops more affordable.

I love coffee shops,too and agree with you on this post. I think perhaps you have hit the nail on the head as to why Starbucks occasionally has trouble - I find them not particularly cozy.

I have to agree with this one... yes sometime you went to your fav coffee shop to quench your craving for coffee...but unconsiously you are attracted to the cozy ambience of it and more relaxing...

I love that you got a good picture of the lighting picture without the light source blowing everything out.

What a beautiful light. I love coffee shops. I like being served coffee! Nothing's better than a brew you don't have to work for! And to share it with a friend--paradise.
