How to assemble a home bar, from carts to pro-level setups

Bars have been largely closed since the arrival of COVID-19. Yet at the same time, alcohol use has been on the rise across the United States. As with so many other human activities, happy hour has been happening at home. That means it’s a good time build a home bar that has both style and substance. Where to Start With so many spirits, glassware options, furniture pieces and mysterious tools out there, it’s easy to feel intimidated by the prospect of a home bar. Remember that the process is supposed to be fun, and know that it’s OK to start small.

Easy Furniture Web Tip 298: Unplug and Replug All Your Devices Weekly

This tip is for home computer devices. It might work in the office, but I would check with your tech person first. I work from home. Even before Covid, I worked from home. Every two or three months, my computer Internet would go down. Of course, it always happened when I was in the midst of a client’s web project. Usually, getting the Internet back up involved calling my provider. About a year ago, the helpdesk person told me to unplug and plug in my modem every month. Weekly would be even better. If I did that, he explained, it would keep glitchy thingys out of my computer. Okay, those are my words for whatever it was he said. Since then, I have faithfully made unpl...

Modern designers can make furniture that is almost unrecognizable | Ag News

A table has three or four or more legs and a flat top. But some modern designers can make furniture that is almost unrecognizable but still serve the same purpose. Cottone Auctions had a recent sale featuring a collection of modern furniture, including pieces by Gianfranco Frattini (1926-2004). He is best known as an Italian architect, but he designed unusual furniture for Cassina and modern lamps for many companies. He is considered an important member of the Italian design movement of the late 1950s and ‘60s. The strange table pictured here is really a nest of four tables designed by Frattini in the 1960s. The group is fitted together like a jigsaw puzzle. The four tables vary in height up to 15 inches. The hammer price for the set was $1,416. The tables ...

Bringing industrial touches to your home

When starting your industrial design journey, think about the materials that are present in your space. The design website Decor Aid notes that you should “avoid using plush fabrics paired with industrial style furniture. Instead, opt for utilitarian and hardworking materials and source furnishings that you can give a second life.”“Scour local antique shops for furniture made from wood, aluminum, iron, steel, tin, stone, and copper as these are go-to materials for enviable industrial style homes. And be sure to take advantage of distressed metal elements and wooden floors, stone countertops, and bare steel beams,” the site recommends. The site also notes that industrial design done right can also be an environmentally conscious move, since it tends to rely on up-cycled materials and vintag...

This floating red staircase brings a modern Harry Potter element to this London apartment!

When I think floating staircase, the first thought I have in my mind is the staircases from Hogwarts! While they are the ultimate level of cool, realistically in a modern London apartment they would be a misfit so architect Michaelis Boyd designed this eye-catching red staircase that also gives you the illusion of floating without any magic or green screens. Michaelis Boyd was in charge of renovating a Georgian apartment building in London’s royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea. He wanted to give it a ‘lift’ in terms of aesthetics as the original architectural work took place in 2010 when the studio combined two existing flats into a four-bedroom maisonette – so an interior upgrade was necessary! The team wanted to match the style to the client’s personality and the bold, bright stairc...
