The Most Unique Home Bar Ever

Have you guys seen Restoration Hardware’s new collection called “Objects of Curiosities”? The collection features interesting pieces made by artisans with romantic titles like “historical revitalist/collector,” “antique collectors/innovators,” and “antiquarian/naturalist.” Most of the objects are either a reproduction of a historical piece, like this bust of Adriane, or were inspired by historical pieces, like these botanical prints based on antique French pressed flowers.

I flipped through the catalog last night and while I did like a lot of the pieces, by far my favorite thing was this bar. It’s based on a German light bulb tester from the 1920’s. It would make a really interesting industrial piece in any room as is, but it was reimagined and repurposed as a bar. Take a look.

Isn’t that the coolest thing? Of course, since it is from Restoration Hardware, it’s not cheap. The full retail price is $1995 but it’s currently on sale for $1795. If you had the money and you wanted a home bar that was totally unique this could be amazing in your home. What do you think of it?
