I know there were a few of you who were not taking to some of the contemporary/modern accessories and pieces of furniture that I showed you from last week’s furniture market. But I wanted to show you a couple more things that I thought were pretty nifty.
At first glance I really loved this woven leather wine bar. In fact, I really thought about ordering it for myself, until I realized that what I really needed was a piece of furniture that had a place where I could mix drinks and display my crystal wine carafes.
It had a reasonable amount of storage space for glassware and wine. But it didn’t quite fit all of my needs.
But this cabinet has the storage space that I need AND a flat surface to mix a drink and set out my liquor carafes. I’d definitely top it with a piece of heavy glass to protect the leather top. I’m just not sure it’s quite wide enough for the niche I’m thinking I would place it. Hmmmm, I may have to think about this one… I DID order a cool silvered chest for the store that might work…
What are your thoughts on these two pieces of furniture? Would they fit your style? I think that they are transitional pieces, but are they too contemporary for your own decor? Too impractical for you? Tell me what you think about something like this for your own home. I promise to post some more traditional things next time!
