New Booze Station Here In The Land Of Modtomic. Another Cool Danish Piece That Had Been Languishing On C-List. Status: Match Made In Vintage Mod Heaven!
So there ya go. Like they were made for each other. The seller had a trio of really cool bar stools that went with this bar but sold them separately. The bar kept getting "top posted" every couple of days. Although I was initially interested just 'cuz it's cool, I didn't really have much use for it and it wasn't really "flip" priced. Well...
...I've decided to pull the display case (with Googie Formica bartop) we are currently using as
a bar for other uses and that left me with the opportunity to purchase this for use in its stead!
This is a much more appropriate bar for our place anyway. The old "bar" was more Retro than
Mod. But I did like being able to display my liqueur, soda dispensers and mixer / shakers. I
might just modify the new bar by adding some windows for the upper shelf level.
I've only just gotten it out of the car and set it up for these pics. I haven't gotten to clean it up
or slather it with Feed-N-Wax yet. Also note the dirty dirty barstool seats...oh those some dirty
little barstools. OK...so I've not gotten around to cleaning the seats like I maybe should have.
I'm such a slacker, but I'll get too it. But don't the baby blue and orange look good together?
I took a quick look on the bottom of the bar but didn't see a sticker or stamp so I haven't been
able to nail down a maker...much less a designer, if there even is one, associated with this bar.
I'd kinda hate to modify the thing and THEN find out it was a piece by Risom or Baughman,
ya know? But then, I didn't pay a king's ransom for it or anything like that...and it's not in pristine
condition. Hopefully I'll get the livingroom / coctail area (and dining room, kitchen...bedroom......
family room.....second bedroom...::sigh::) in order and be able to get some updated photos soon.
