Rare Jacques Adnet Leather and Brass Bar Cart c. 1950

I love all things Jacques Adnet (1900-1984)…he was a true master. This is a fabulous example of his designs-a beautiful black leather two tiered bar cart with brass details and white stitching. It comes complete with a black enameled bottle holder attached. Beyond chic.

An icon of luxurious French Modernism, Jacques Adnet grew up with the 20th Century. He attended the famous Ecole des Beaux-Arts Paris . He believed in the functional aspect of furniture combined with geometrical simplicity. Jacques Adnet was inspired by pre-classical styles and was well acquainted with traditional furniture. Until the age of 28, Jacques lived and worked hand in hand with his twin brother Jean at the Studio La Maitrise, where they met the Art Déco designer Maurice Dufrene.  From 1928 to 1960, he directed La Compagnie des Arts Francais. His team of decorators included Francois Jourdain, and Georges Jouve
