Repro Thursday

This isn’t the first bar featured on Repro Thursday – you know I love a good bar or bar cart!  But this Design Within Reach bar made an impression on me, and I just had to share it!

DWR – Line Bar

The Line Bar is designed by Nathan Yong.  “I have always been inspired by the simple forms of turntables and entertainment units from the 1960s,”  Yong explains to DWR.  Don’t you just love the slatted front?  There are other pieces in Yong’s collection, including a credenza and media console.

But let’s get back to that bar!

And if you like to park  your motorcycle in your home, the Line Bar will complement your ride.  (Random?)

Motorcycle aside, I think the Line Bar is a great piece, with terrific vintage-inspired lines and function.

What do you think?

The piece of furniture I’m featuring today is extremely unique.  It uses straight lines, curved lines, glass, mirror, gold and an overall feeling of late 70’s/early 80’s disco glam.

This server has had one owner.  It is in overall good condition.  It has some scuffing at the bottom, visible in the photo.  I can give you more specifics and close up photos if you’re interested.

The measurements of the piece are: 54″ wide x 19″ deep x 30.5″ tall.

The interior of the server has a terrific drawer for keeping your silverware.

The piece is not marked, but the time period,original purchase price, and details on the piece suggest that it most likely is Ello.  I have to give thanks to a super-helpful reader in California, Becky, for helping me determine the most-likely maker.  (Thanks Becky!!)

Let’s look at some different ways to use mirrored furniture:

Is it a desk?  A dresser?

… or a BAR?

I want it to be a bar.

But you can make it anything you want!

I love that this has drawers for storage (always a MUST for me).  The lighting is such an unexpected perk!

This piece does have wear.  It really needs a new home where someone will throw a fabulous coat of paint on it.

Here is some inspiration in the form of fold-down bars and desks:
