Paris brasserie Abstinence revives chic 70’s green

It’s been decades since it was in vogue, but vintage mossy green is making a comeback at Abstinence brasserie in Paris thanks to design studio Lizée-Hugot.

The French practice paired the hue with wood panelling and tubular steel furniture, creating a 70s revival atmosphere across the Rive Gauche restaurant’s interiors.

Lizée-Hugot custom-designed wooden chairs, tables and pea-green leather benches for the Paris restaurant and added globe-shaped wall lights and a marble bar to elevate the dining space. A lacquered ceiling and strategically placed candlesticks finish off the cosy bistro ambience.

Abstinence offers an extensive cocktail list, including a dedicated menu of gin concoctions, and serves up a seasonal menu including grilled octopus with cucumber cream, and roasted cauliflower in turmeric butter.
