One of my favorite Boston furniture stores and StyleCarrot partner is Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, and not just because I’m friendly with Andrew Terrat, the company’s talented regional visual director. The pieces are simultaneously tailored and feminine, classic and glam.
Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams fall collection is replete with the season’s most sumptuous home decor trends. Luscious velvets in blues and autumnal hues, burnished brass, matte blacks, and cool marble all make pointed appearances. And of course, they all work perfectly when layered with its sleek case goods and shaggy rugs.
Fall always makes me want to redecorate, and of course that’s best done well before the holidays, given ordering times and such. I’m contemplating a new living room sofa, though that will have to wait until after our master bath renovation, which is finally happening early next year.
However, there is a very tempting sale. Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams extended its Fall Sale Event. The entire collection is 20 percent off through October 23. It includes pretty much everything not on clearance, even special order upholstery.
They’ve also debuted a drapery collection with three styles in seven different fabric options including Belgian linen, velvet, and semi-sheer linen. Hardware comes in three finishes (polished chrome, brass, and black nickel) and there are five finial styles.

As you know, bar carts have become the must-have accent piece in the modern home. Even those who don’t drink want shiny a bar cart set up in an unused corner, styled to perfection with all the best bar accoutrements—decanters, shakers, stirrers, striped paper straws, martini glasses—finished with a killer piece of artwork hanging on the wall above it.
Bars don’t have to be on casters (though all the bar carts in this post are on wheels). You can create a bar in a cleared out section of a bookshelf, on a lacquered tray atop a console table, or repurpose the armoire you no longer need for your TV since you switched to a flatscreen. A tray table—the kind that’s an actual tray set into a butler’s stand—works particularly well as a home bar too.
This entry has been one of the site’s top five posts since I first published it over two years ago; it’s been long overdue for an overhaul. As of November 10, 2014 you’ll find 50 brand new bar carts arrayed here. With the holidays approaching, it seemed an ideal time for a bar carts refresh.
I’ve been thinking about setting up a bar for my husband for like half a dozen years now. At this point, with the boys approaching teendom, we’ll need a bar cabinet with a lock. (I’ll work on a bar cabinet post soon.) Perhaps I could pull one together as a holiday gift. Or his next birthday. We will be entertaining for our son’s bar mitzvah this winter. Can’t have a cocktail party without a pretty home bar, after all.
This selection of 50 bar carts, serving carts, and trolleys, some with removable trays, are all ideal for setting up your home bar. Styles include contemporary, mid-century modern, art deco, and traditional classics in brass, walnut, acrylic, polished nickel, lucite, birch, oak, rattan and more.
