We're deep into the holiday season and New Year's Eve is right around the corner. Are you planning on hosting a party at your home? I love this bar console we saw earlier this year and have been thinking about how to translate this to my home.
The Crosley Cambridge expandable bar cabinet (below left) measures an impressive 62" when fully opened. With this piece, there's surely room enough for beverages to suit every taste. If your style is more strictly wine, the Winsome console wine table (below right) has adequate storage for your favorite vintages and plenty of glasses to boot. The angled legs and upturned top surface lend a slightly Asian flare to this piece.
For a more modern take on the bar cart, there is the Artek Tea Trolley 902 (below left) designed by Alvar Aalto. There are other variations on this trolley available (like this one with a woven rattan basket) but this is my favorite for its simplicity of design. Another option is this piece from the Talt Collection by Modern Outdoor (below right). With the proper options and finishes, this cart can even withstand a life outdoors. I do love the combination of the warm wood with the cool matte finish stainless steel.
Well, it wouldn't be a post of mine without a little shine. So here are a few bright and shiny options for serving up your beverages.
From the shop for Studio Ten 25 comes the Roland bar cart (above left). As if the frame's gold leaf finish didn't bring enough shine, the two mirrored shelves add to the festive factor. The Beckett bar cart (above center) was inspired by a 1930s industrial trolley. Though the brass finish is shown here, it is also available in polished nickel. Why not go round? The space-saving circular Soho beverage cart (above right) comes in a polished brass finish with glass shelves.
What's your bar cart style? Traditional wood? Modern and sleek? Bright and shiny? Do tell...
