Bar Carts


A well-stocked bar cart reminds us of Hollywood circa 1950, but the cart is actually a Victorian artifact, invented to serve tea! Today they are as adaptable, beautiful, and portable as ever (and we've had fun designing a few of our own). With the holidays upon us, we thought it was the perfect time to dive into the archives and unearth a handful of our favorites.
