Gypsy Cup serves up a dose of cafe culture
Now open in downtown Gilbert, Arizona, cafe and cocktail bar Gypsy mug transports guests to the cafes in the streets of Paris. Scottsdale-based company house of form spearheaded a charming design concept for the space that reflects global travel through luxurious textures, custom elements, and an elevated artwork portfolio.
“The owner’s travels around the world were the main source of inspiration for Gypsy Cup,” says Dala Al-Fuwaires, owner of House of Form and lead designer. “The goal was to overcome the transactional interaction of the cafe, encouraging customers to relax and enjoy an all-day experience. The illuminating transformation from day to night allows the space to feel truly elegant. .
Custom tiling, brass lighting and quadruple banquettes support Gypsy Cup’s seamless transition from day to night, with marble and velvet surfaces infusing refined tactility. Cane and light oak wood further brighten the sun-drenched interior, which is lined with classic black and white checkered patterns for a modern touch. Globe and terrazzo pendant lights lining the patio to reinforce the cafe influence. “The desire was to ‘make Gilbert global’,” adds Al-Fuwaires. “Guests are transported out of their small town in the desert to a European cafe that has a bustling energy from day to night.”
