The Flossie household has reached the epitome of domestic chic (circa 1977), not to mention achieved the American dream (think The Graduate, think Dallas): a home bar! We spotted this one, complete with vinyl bumper and barstools, at a local antique store, and knew we were destined to have it because, well, we already have some matching barrel furniture—armchairs and a sofa. I have heard that one's interior design should have a motif that ties together different rooms. Our motif is barrels.
The vintage store owner—who also sold Mr. Flossie the other barrel furniture years ago—said he was selling them on consignment for a woman who removed them from her husband's, quote, "man cave."
The bar not only looks hot, it's functional, too. Inside the barrel are shelves for the storing of booze. Quoth Mr. Flossie, "We have now made alcohol consumption the focal point of our home decor." As well it should be.
