Repro Thursday

The latest Serena & Lily catalog arrived yesterday.  Take a look at that cover!  Of course I immediately opened the pages, hoping that by doing so, my surroundings would immediately imitate the cover!

Serena & Lily Summer 2014

I wasn’t transported to a beach, (still surrounded by blanket forts and stray Legos) but I did enjoy the beautiful pages.  As usual, it is full of pops of color and awesome patterns.  They also have a few new products, one of which I thought would be perfect for some summertime entertaining.  And you know I can’t pass up a good bar cart photo!

S&L Cottage Bar Cart


The Cottage Bar Cart is made of bent and woven rattan.  If you’ve visited the Pursuing Vintage Shop lately, you’ve noticed my love of rattan and bentwood.  I love the light feel of the pieces – coastal and earthy with a bit of whimsy.  A rattan piece does not take itself too seriously – it is like a breath of fresh air.  Rattan is extremely versatile, and this cart is no exception.  I think S&L describes it best “Bar cart, magazine perch, mini stage for collected objêts…However (and wherever) you put this double-tiered cart to use, it takes to the task with notable style“.



Do you think you’d have a place for this bar cart?  Or do you prefer the more traditional metal types?
