Display your bottles around the house

Whether they are full or already started, they are sure to add a touch of fantasy to your living space.

Invite your small home bar in a cabinet
Another ready-made solution to enjoy Happy Hour comfortably seated on your sofa? Slide your bottles, glasses, decanters, stainless steel straws, ice tongs, corkscrew, measuring cup and other shakers into a piece of furniture. Whether intended for this purpose, like the trolley, this outdated piece in glass and gilded brass or diverted from its original use, there is no doubt that the result will be there. In the interiors that we have preferred, the bar has found pride of place in the hollow of the shelf, the library as well as the blurred glass display case. What will happen to you?
