Channels The Stele Bar is one of a new series of cabinets designed by Samuel Chan for Channels – all created, as the name suggests, to have a monumental appearance. The 1600mm tall bar includes a mirrored interior with open shelves for glassware. The structure incorporates a pull-down serving surface, wine rack and ‘secret’ side storage.

Buster & Punch’s Rock Star whiskey or cocktail bar is handmade from solid American Walnut and comes with foldable legs. Complete with silk quilted back panel, brass furniture handle, it also features an internal knurled brass light fitting with a  heat cage for protection.

The chest-like, hand crafted Leather Cocktail Cabinet on coasters is by UK company Brissi. Leather strappings securely hold the glasses and bottles in the doors, while hanging glass stem holders are slotted into the top and wine storage.

The digitally printed Peony Play Cocktail Cabinet, by Jacky Tsai for Mineheart, fuses traditional Chinese artistic references with Mineheart’s passion for contemporary design. It can be finished in satin or high gloss white, with cherry wood or polished brass legs.

Frans by PINCH has a timber and lacquered exterior and cast copper handles. Inside it features a peach tone mirror, LED lighting, a satin copper lacquered work surface, adjustable shelves, silicon-lined drinks trough, as well as a dovetailed drawer and glass stem hanging boxes.

Rue Monsieur’s Bird of Paradise Cocktail Cabinet is made up of lacquered wood, an empress green marble front, and a polished brass base. Opulent details come in the form of bird-shaped white corian and brass handles. The cabinet also features interior LED lighting.

Portuguese joiners WeWood’s Mister has five drawers and seven adjustable shelves, allowing for a variety of bottle heights. The structure and door are in solid walnut, with a herringbone pattern and an interior in solid oak. At 355m-deep, it is a particularly slim line model.
