Bars, Carts and Bar Cabinets
Bring your kitchen or dining room into the modern world of design by incorporating a bar, cart or bar cabinets into your layout. Whether your room is modest and functional or large and lavish, these furnishings will provide much-needed storage space along with a touch of flair.
Notably popular in the 1960s, these vintage-style furnishings are making a comeback in a big way. As many residential kitchens and dining rooms transform from closed spaces into open-concept entertainment areas, the demand for retro bars, carts and bar cabinets is on the rise.
Sideboards, buffets and servers aren’t new entries into the furniture arena. These furnishings date back to the 16th century −− when dining tables were often called "boards" −− because they comprised long wooden boards resting atop bases. Before a meal was served, the board was placed atop the bases. When the meal was finished, the board and bases were moved away to make room. European homes had permanent "boards" in their dining rooms on which food and dishes were placed before and after the meal. These were called "sideboards."
Though stylish, bars, carts and bar cabinets are typically featured in design concepts for their utility. Many of them are portable and allow you to expand the amount of space you have available with little effort. Bars generally contain easily accessible spaces for wine bottles and liquor storage, while carts and islands let you store items and prep meals when counter space is limited.

From edgy and contemporary to classic and refined, bars, carts and bar cabinets can seamlessly integrate into your existing decor or become a focal point all their own.
