Oh, the bar cart...I am a fan of the bar cart. It speaks to my aesthetic of classic, traditional with a hint of vintage nostalgia. I am using them in both residential and commercial applications in recent projects. They multi-task beautifully as serving stations for entertainment purposes and furniture or display spots when not.
I am thinking about using Restoration Hardware's Milo for a commercial application to be used for drink service in a conference room while also acting as furniture and a display layer to add interest and some sparkle in an otherwise work-horse of a space.
I love the idea of using in a master bedroom as side tables, either a matching pair or using two, unique designs for a more eclectic aesthetic. Or, using in a bathroom for toiletries or jewelry in a dressing room. I think that the bar cart is a highly under-rated piece of furniture and my goal is to use it in interesting ways this year in my interiors. Cheers!
