design et al are delighted to announce that April Russell has been shortlisted in the Bespoke Cabinetry Category of The International Product Design Awards 2015
April Russell’s inspiration in creating the Bunny Bar stems from her childhood in Long Island and experiencing first hand, the glamour of the Cocktail Hour. April’s bespoke Bunny Bar has been designed to be chic and sexy and simultaneously add an injection of fun and drama into any entertaining space. Dressed or undressed, doors closed or open, this stunning cocktail cabinet will bring glamour to every occasion from a relaxed evening tipple to a full cocktail soiree.
Crafted by hand in England, the Bunny Bar is a chic statement piece crafted internally in oak. It features an exterior frame of reeded mouldings which is then finished in a specialist painted technique made to resemble vintage rattan. The interior back surface is finished in clear glass with two 10mm polished edged shelves. A further piece of glass protects the work surface from spills and splashes. Two drawers with antique brass detail are finished in a Hermes Tangerine lacquer and lined in a saddle stitch chocolate leather base matt. The base of the bar is made in steel and finished to look like antique bronze The piece includes a base shelf painted to match the fronts of the doors. This statement piece can also be adapted to any colour, bespoke finish and can even be adapted to house a television or a work home station.
