Holy Guacamole – London’s first Avobar with flooring from Havwoods

The first of its kind, Avobar is situated in Covent Garden and is London’s first dedicated avocado bar. Expertly designed by the team at DesignLSM, the brief involved creating a space that is both eclectic and ‘insta-worthy’. Adorned with sumptuous fresh produce and framed by stunning botanical backdrops, the restaurant embraces the beauty of nature with a contemporary design aesthetic that makes Avobar one of the most exciting new additions to London’s thriving social dining scene. Taking inspiration from the laid-back Californian lifestyle, the design features a relaxed, neutral colour palette with distressed white timbers, a range of woven textiles and statement wood flooring from Havwoods.

DesignLSM chose the Henley collection from Havwoods for the high performance, fashion-forward flooring it provides and applied four different boards from the range in a random pattern that celebrates the unique character of natural wood. Manufactured for the hospitality market, the Henley collection presents a range of pre-finished engineered wood planks with a superior oiled and lacquered surface. Ideal for high footfall installations or heavy-duty use, the textured surface of Henley ensures that any superficial scratches and marks are naturally disguised without distracting from the floor’s original aesthetic.

Alongside flooring, Havwoods also provided distressed wood cladding for the Avobar project, with rich reclaimed wood surfaces that complement the natural palette found throughout the interior. The presence of both the Vertical cladding range and Henley flooring collection creates a unique feature throughout Avobar’s design scheme, celebrating organic textures that capture the laid-back LA-inspired interior and progressive ethos of London’s first avocado concept dining experience.
