Vices & Virtues is a stunning restaurant nestled in the Christchurch city center, offering a flavourful dining experience in an exquisite interior that boasts a boutique design that is warm, cosy and inviting.
Subliminal biophilic references tether the internal palette of this all-day café, restaurant and bar to the wilds of New Zealand’s South Island hinterland – from the joinery’s native Blackbutt timber to the teal blue of the Waimakariri River that anchors the custom moulded U-shaped bar clad in New Zealand-made tiles and flows along the leather banquette seating.
To create this tasteful ambience, the Ginger Chair makes a striking appearance, with a deep timber stain and leather upholstery that oozes sophistication and comfort. Its smooth yet angular frame plays against the strong geometric floor tiles.
