Design 101: Bar Carts

Today we’re excited to continue our “Design 101″ series! Once a month, we dive into the backstory behind specific furniture styles and show you the best way to use the pieces in your home. Thanks to the influence of Mad Men, we’re seeing a resurgence in home bars for cocktail hour and dinner parties. A throwback to this classic 1950s and 1960s aesthetic, bar carts conveniently add a touch of vintage appeal to the home.

With versatile and open constructions, today’s bar carts range from contemporary industrial metal to glamorous gold designs. Often featuring glass shelves with raised sides, these pieces are the perfect way to display collections of glassware, bar tools and bottles.

Set on wheels for ease of movement, these metal carts create a fully-stocked bar for entertaining anywhere in the home. We recommend placing this must-have party furnishing in a living room or dining room and styling it with colored cocktail tumblers, sophisticated ice buckets and glass decanters.

Designed by Philippe Starck, the luxurious Le Royal Monceau hotel in Paris, France, is a study in glamorous contrasts, including guest rooms with vintage French chairs and tables (below) featuring metallic finishes.

In the guest room sitting area, a series of three strategically placed lamps provide height behind a French-style sofa, which is framed by two French doors topped with transoms that allow ample natural light to spill through the space.

Of course, no French hotel retreat would be complete without a bergere-style chaise, positioned perfectly before a balcony view overlooking the quaint Paris streets.

Light up your style! Choosing the ideal table lamp is a critical design decision, as important as any other because a lamp not only has the task of providing light but also serves as a room’s finishing touch. The ideal lamp should be one part light and one part sculpture! To help you on your quest to find the ideal style, we wanted to share with you a few of our current favorites, from curvy to rippled.

Inslee by Design: March Edition

Spring is right around the corner and I’m dreaming of flowers! I’d love to begin my spring cleaning with a garden full of tulips outside and a new set of bed linens inside. This Pine Cone Hill Watercolor Flowers Duvet is right up my alley. Crisp white linens dotted with vibrant watercolored flowers – so perfect for springtime. I’d pair it with the Arteriors Zoey Mustard Dot lamp to keep the colorful, bright theme going. I happen to love a round mirror over a bed. Especially one with an inlaid quatrefoil like the Regina Andrew Decor Lula Gloss White Mirror. What a cheerful room to welcome in the new season. Happy Spring!

Expressions of Color: White


A symbol of purity and innocence, some may not think of white as a color at all but it’s been a Layla Grayce favorite from day one. Perfect for coastal decor schemes, layered with multiple textures all in white or as an accent to bring out other colors, white is a shining star in our book. Shop all white products here.
