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?
