Finding the right bar cart for your space may sound like a simple task, but there are a multitude of choices to be had.  From a thrift store find for a DIY project, or the ultimate authentic 1930s french version sold by The Golden Triangle for a cool $5,300!  Whatever the case, hopefully by the end of this post you’ll decide which type tickles your fancy.

We could infinitely discuss the different carts in the marketplace, but for time’s sake we’ll highlight a few styles that the Jigsaw team like to use for added interest in a space.

For starters, we like using a more masculine style in a room that evokes a feeling of academia like a study or library.   In this instance, you can’t beat the round metal bar from Restoration Hardware that was inspired by 1920S German light bulb voltage tester.  While it is uber cool, it may not fit into some home styles.  Other options on the industrial modern side of things, consider a minimalistic metal cart for a rustic or loft style space.

For a more ladylike vibe, a Chippendale or rattan cart may be the answer.  Equally, a classic metal and glass cart if fabulous when tricked out with beautiful bottles and fun pop art.

Once you’ve selected your cart, simply dress it in your style with a little whimsy of course!  Chic glasses and bar ware plus some quirky objects for conversation starters are always a plus.

The modernist may struggle with this item that could seemingly end up as clutter, but a little lucite number could be the remedy for this type of OCD.  Meticulously lined bottles and no fuss trinkets will result in a perfectly curated place to pamper your guests with your cocktail d’jour.
