Our Silver Pearl Sideboard is new and features a beautiful rubbed silver leaf finish. We like it because it has traditional lines and legs but with a modern twist. It’s perfect to add to a formal setting and says “we’d like to have a little fun, here! C’mon over and pour yourself a drink!”. It’s not too serious and not too stuffy. Though it might seem like a good idea to use a silver or mirrored console table as a bar, you really need to have storage space below for stirrers, straws, spoons, napkins, shakers, and all of the other accoutrements.
At our sister retail site, The Well Appointed House (bookmark it if you haven’t!), we’ve received many requests from designers looking around for silver and mirrored pieces to use as a bar. Here are a few recommendations:
As you can see, there is plenty of room for drink prep on top and the cabinets open with shelves inside that can be moved for storage of liquor bottles. Not bad! If you’re concerned about the finish on top, trace an outline of the surface and go to your local mirror and glass workshop and have them craft a piece for added protection.
