Cartel is one of those restaurants and coffee shops that adhere to the rustic design and this kind of theme is slowly sprouting here and there if not becoming the popular trend.
Some may even coin it as rustic-industrial design which is a combination of weathered materials and natural elements like foliage and plants to mechanical elements of steel and metal accents.

Light installations made of modern material that provide just enough light. Though a friend commented that the feel seems to be forlorn and desolate.
