What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
Exotic Modern Bar
Our customers wanted to step out from the regular ordinary bars and make a focal point in their entertainment basement. This bar is made from a beautiful exotic veneer which is mixed with stainless steel. The upper cabinets were cut from metallic grey melamine and enclosed with modern stainless steel door frames and sand blasted glass. All the doors have servo-drive blum lift up mechanisms which adds a great modern feature for today’s modern society. The rest of the door and panels were painted in matching light grey color. To high light the gorgeous veneer we added LED strip light in between each of the groves around the whole bar. The upper cabinets also lit up with LEDs. Now whenever the couple have friends over for a little entertainment its really hard to resist a nice refreshing drink beside the bar when it glows so bright.
