Something for that Rakish man (or woman)

By Jo Phillips

The rakish man-about-town (or woman for that matter) is chic, perfectly turned out, with a glint in the eye and a healthy wallet. He may find the bar below as the perfect addition to his sumptuous home to entertain like Bond with the ultimate cabinet.

For this purpose, the luxury launches website VeryFirstTo.com has partnered with British furniture and interior brand Timothy Oulton to create one of the world’s most remarkable bar cabinets, which contains the most luxury drinks and cigars, delivered together with the award-winning bartender Marian Beke. This man is a legend in the industry and will stay with whoever buys the bar cabinet for a whole weekend to create magnificent bespoke cocktails.

Timothy Oulton is a British interior and furniture company, which creates unique, authentically crafted pieces with the perfect balance between tradition and modernity.
The Timothy Oulton Hudson Bar Cupboard (£6,100) is created with painstaking handcraftsmanship. His collection features a variety of vintage looking distinctive bar furniture and cabinetry and each leather panel is affixed one by one using hand-applied studs to create a rich patchwork. The designs feature multi-tonal hues of deep, warm browns and blacks with subtle detailing, which adds a mysterious and unexpected rakish theme to the furniture. Timothy Oulton himself says that the new Hudson collection “is all about having people over, enjoying a drink and letting go. The Ultimate Bar Cabinet conveys that ever so slightly defiant streak, that insists on having a good time and going on a little later”.
