Spotting a bar cart in an interiors photo these days is much like playing a game of where’s Waldo.  Some are completely conspicuous, standing dapper in the corner ready with your favorite drink while others are in camouflage – working hard to blend in while performing alternative duties.  But either way you cart it, there’s no denying this home accessory’s current fame — and as it’s popularity continues to rise, so do the uses it’s demanding public has has found for it!

Sans alcohol and all the traps and trimmings that make a bar cart easy to spy,  these multi purposed and uber functional carts have proven they’re up for any challenge.  You can spot them providing towel service, offering up coffee, taming jungles, battling the unorganized desk and even carefully curating your favorite collections.  In short, they are truly multi-talented, multi-fascited, androgeneous and ambiguous little keepers of ‘neat’ and clean.  And this is our little salute to the hardest working cart in town, small in size but big on style, may the interpretations inspire you!
