HOW TO: Style a Bar Cart

"If you want to be fancy and posh, whilst filling your home with friends, merriment and breathtaking vignettes, you should probably invest in a bar cart.” – Emily Henderson

These lovely little pieces have been around for years, but have managed to spin their way back into vogue – perhaps as a direct result from our obsession with Mad Men. But, long before this show became the standard for trend-setting, there were stylish films from the 40's and 50's where the bar cart was another character, adding an air of mystery and sophistication to an already impossibly chic surrounding. Think Cary Grant, crystal decanters, maraschino cherries and a curious grin...shall I pour you another?
