Building on the attention restoration theory (ART), the researchers used four sub-dimensions of being away, extent, fascination, compatibility to serve as variables that illustrate the potential of restoration of malls as the center of a new lifestyle of metropolitan consumers in the digital era. The present study used a sample of 120 respondents in the city of Surabaya, East Java. The research method used a 2 x 2 experimental design with the MANOVA and ANOVA methods in two experimental studies. Study 1 found that, as a whole, consumers regarded the lifestyle center of nature nuances as more likely to be comfortable, relative to those consumers not seeing plants, and experienced three of the four environmental characteristics (sub-dimensions) that represent the restorative environment. Study 2 found no significant differences between shopping purposes and the four sub dimensions that served as the dependent variables.
