Shaken or Stirred?
A bar cart built for beauty and function
Gone are the “Mad Men” days of having a cocktail cart at work, fully stocked for liquid lunches and in-office happy hours. But the bar cart—which got its sober start as a tea trolley in the Victorian era—has seen a resurgence in popularity over recent years, this time as a stylish staple for home interiors.
With a geometric carbon-steel form and a warm ebony ash top and base, this version by Luminaire is light and refined. It’s functional, too: The steel disc wheels are operable, allowing easy transition from room to room, or outside for summer cocktails on the patio. Teca Bar Cart, $3,488; luminaire.com
