If I could gift one item to someone that is practical, compact, and incredibly stylish….. it would be a Bar Cart. This may seem odd, but it is truly an instant way to add a bit of chic to your home or event without breaking the bank. It could be that I am slightly preoccupied by anything midcentury, but I love the look of a well-staged and functional bar cart. In our pintrest board, there are several different suggestions of styles and uses.
When using a bar cart for drinks, add pretty glassware, fresh cut flowers, fun stirrers, and great coasters and of course your favorite cocktail ingredients. A cart also makes an excellent addition to a bathroom, especially when placed next to an elegant claw-foot tub. For small apartments, they are a great mini work station; compact enough to place a laptop and desk accessories. They also make a great nightstand or a unique accent table in your living room; be sure to place a bold lamp, and conversational hard bound books on the shelves. Bar carts are also wonderful accents to events. They add personality and a bit of whimsy to candy stations, or cigar bars, or even escort tables. Bar carts come in a variety of styles from modern to vintage and range in price from a $35 Ikea version to $2,000 Jonathan Adler version. If you are looking to rent one for your next event, be sure to check out our 2 options from our collection (the last two pictures in the gallery).
Hope you enjoy this trend as much as I do!
