About the Item

Step back in time and elevate your entertaining with this exquisite vintage mid-century modern teak bar cart, designed by the celebrated Torbjørn Afdal for Mellemstrands Møbelfabrik/Bruksbo in Norway around the 1960s. This beautifully crafted piece showcases the era's iconic design aesthetic with its warm teak grain that promises to infuse any space with timeless appeal. The innovative "flip top" feature is a conversation starter, allowing you to effortlessly convert the sleek 30-inch locking liquor cabinet into an impressive 60-inch wide "Stand up" service bar, perfect for hosting and serving guests. The bar cart is thoughtfully designed with mobility in mind, resting on smooth-rolling caster wheels that make relocation a breeze, whether you're rearranging your space or serving drinks. It boasts ample storage capacity for your fine spirits, glassware, and bar accessories, while the inclusion of two original keys ensures the safety and exclusivity of your collection. The back of the cart is as meticulously finished in teak as the front, exhibiting a beautiful grain that ensures the cart looks stunning from every angle. Measuring approximately 30.25"W x 16.5"D x 32.75"H, this bar cart maintains an overall great condition with minor wear that is consistent with its vintage nature, adding to its charm and character. Please be aware that one shelf is missing, which offers a new owner the opportunity to customize the space to their needs. This versatile bar cart is not only a functional piece but also a striking one that pairs well with a variety of interior styles, including Scandinavian, modern, contemporary, and even eclectic decors. Its clean lines and elegant form make it a timeless addition to your home that will be cherished for years to come. Don't miss the chance to own a piece of design history with this Torbjørn Afdal mid-century marvel.
