Coniston Drinks Trolley

A closer look at Coniston

Recent years have seen the return of the drinks trolley (or bar cart) as an elegant way to bring cocktails back into the sociable setting of a living room. Having a spot where you can prepare drinks while still chatting, or where guests can feel at ease to help themselves, is incredibly luxurious in a comfortable, convivial way. Enter Coniston: a drinks trolley with a refined, Black-Bronze frame and airy glass shelves that’ll rest, modest but reassuring, in a living room’s corner.

The materials

Coniston’s Black-Bronze finish coats a steel frame – a pairing that offers the best of strength and looks. The frame is entirely welded together to ensure plenty of rigidity whilst being slim and light. And the tempered glass shelves are reliably sturdy.

The finish

The Black-Bronze finish references traditionally beeswax-coated steel that’s naturally blackened by the forge. It’s not as metallic in appearance as bronze or brass, but still has some of the bronze peeking through to add warmth and create a more classic look than a flat black finish.

Design details

Each vertical bar of the frame has a round cap with a series of stepped collars on the way down, which, in turn, are echoed in the ends of the handle (which also has a pretty swoop detail to its sides). At the feet are small matching castors that, like the handle, are as much about adding to the vintage bar cart feel as they are practical. All in all, these are little details, but ones that make Coniston all the more graceful.

A styling tip or two

Think of this piece as a console table: if it’s against a wall, give it presence by hanging a picture above and placing a lamp atop its shelf. Or, position it back-to-back with a sofa so, when you’re mixing drinks, your back isn’t to the room. You could also use it purely as a display piece for coffee table books and trinkets.
