The decor of Imperfecto Shor Café features exposed brick with valiant illustrations and vintage looking furniture. SHOR Cafe has an atmosphere that is difficult to replicate, it leaves you with a feeling as though you have traveled back in time and yet it is modern and quirky.
Nuria Rodriguez Parra, Director Creative, the lady behind designing all Imperfecto’s is not only an “Observer of the everyday” but also a multidisciplinary creator in great architectural and creative influences. This Chic Cafe pairs rustic decor with industrial detailing. The pointed arch, the canvas paintings on all the walls and the handmade lights like ancient castles give the space a distinctive character!
The Cafe is beautifully balanced between Romanesque architecture which was succeeded by Renaissance architecture. The Imperfecto Shor Cafe has been designed with a keen eye and every piece is handmade. One of the interesting touches which Nuria used at Shor Cafe is the Charpoy ceilings and the stunningly rustic chandeliers and wall lamps.
