Project Name: A Swanky Speakeasy Den
Convert an underused basement/den space into a lounge area for family and friends to gather and be merry in. The space needs to hold drink related items, accommodate (2) Wine Cellars, and showcase the client's trophy collection. It is also adjacent to a laundry closet, so 2 of the cabinets are specified for laundry tasks (drying via a dry rack and storage).
The primary objective was to create a space that would be an experience for the user. High-end finishes, such as the Richelieu wire mesh doors and coordinating hardware, elevates the aesthetic and makes you feel like you are somewhere other than a home's basement. If you're going to have a cocktail, why not have it in style? The warm tones of the cabinetry and finishes makes the space feel cozy and inviting - the perfect ambience for a gathering with friends and loved ones. Bespoke cabinets were designed to showcase the client's trophy collection and tailored to fit specific bottle sizes. The warm toned integrated LED lighting was the "olive on the Martini" element to give this space the flavor it needed.
TFL laminate, our exclusive finishes. This particular finish is called "Seared Brown".

Knobs and handles are Richelieu Oriental Bronze (Modern Metal Knob and Modern Metal Pull).
