I’ve been in more chain restaurants than I care to admit and they all seem to have the same Interior Design cues. A bunch of garage sale fodder is invariably nailed to the walls; old board games b-movie posters from the 50′s…sometimes they’ll go as far as to find memorabilia related to the area. There is a Ruby Tuesday’s in my area that has items from the local university and high schools on the walls. Is there a name for that kind of design?
Eclectic Groupings or Wall Hangings. Probably falls into the Shabby Chic or Nostagic Memorabilia Classification. Display and Gallery Walls have been around for centuries.
Cracker Barrel is another one of those place where this style is prevelant.
