What is this unholy design scheme?

Is there a name for this style of interior design, or is it just general weirdness?
A local bar that I was fond of dropping into has had a major remodelling during the summer while I was away; much to my dismay. My question is: is the new look a formal school of design?
It's attributes include:
Surrealist portraits, bare wooden floors noticeably flecked and worn, old-fashioned tables, at each of which no two chairs are of the same style. For example, a four place table now might have an armchair, a pouffe, an office chair and a country settle, where before it would have had four chairs of identical material and colour.
The brushed-steel sign has been replaced with one reminiscent of a 1920s movie theatre, and the ceiling duct-work has been exposed and painted. Similar eclecticism has been employed with the light fittings and mirrors- I won't go on forever about it.
I've searched several major design catalogues t haven't found anything remotely resembling this..well..atrocity.
