Not your typical Viennese pastry shop: The bakery at the Hotel Daniel in Vienna is a greenery-filled oasis in the center of the city.

Designed by Atelier Heiss Architects, the interior features a mix of vintage furniture, upholstered seating from modern craft artist Donna Wilson, iconic 1938 BKF chairs by Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy, and custom furniture, including coffee tables made from wooden pallets. It all adds up to a bohemian vibe, complete with Viennese pastries.
