bar carts

Lately we’ve been getting lots of requests from clients for bar carts. We’re not sure if it’s the time of year, or just that they’ve become very trendy these days, but we’re not complaining because we love a good bar cart too! Our favorite bar cart is made by Arteriors, which you can buy online at Zinc Door (we have it in our dining room, below, and it’s served us very well this past year). This photo is an outtake from an entertaining  shoot that we did for the book–you can see our bar cart in the corner of our dining room.  Seeing Lauren dressed up in spring clothes makes me yearn for warm weather and sundresses! And a glass of champagne!These are some of our favorite bar cart inspiration images…A lot of them showcase vintage barware which is actually easier to find then you would think. We often find great shakers and interesting shaped and colored glasses at big antique shows like Brimfield.  In fact, I found my husband’s favorite ice bucket at Brimfield (it’s a very kitschy wooden one with a polar bear on it). He often tries to bring it out whenever we throw cocktail parties–Lauren and I are always strategically placing it out of view, replacing it with our shiny silver one. Sorry, Pat!The photo below, far left, is I believe from an old issue of Elle Decor. It’s most definitely our favorite bar cart image. It’s styled, but in a way that feels lived-in and unfussy, mixing graphic pattern, color, and metals. So, without further ado, these are the bar carts we recommend time and time again, whenever anyone is looking for a fab bar cart for their dining room, living room, first apartment–the Lucite one (see below) could easily double as a bedside table. Drumroll, please!From left to right: Zinc Door/Euro Style Lighting/CB2/Ballard Designs/Crate & Barrel/Serena & Lily. Do you have a favorite source for bar carts? I’d love to hear about it! Stay tuned later this week we’ll share how we’re stocking (and accessorizing) our bar cart for the holidays.
