Tristan Bar Cart 2

Tristan Bar Cart

The Tristan Bar Cart from Pottery Barn is a stylish decorative piece that can warm up your living space.  Our dining room has been rather empty since we moved into our home close to 3 years ago, minus our huge dining room table & chairs.  But, this past year, Helen & I have made it a goal of ours to complete the dining room furnishings & decor so we can host holiday events and make the room feel cozier.  Drumroll please….Enter the Tristan Bar Cart!

The Tristan Bar Cart has a top shelf made of tempered glass and a bottom shelf that is a mirror.  It also has casters to easily move it around.  It is approximately 32″ high, 26.5″ long (measuring from handle to handle) and 21.5″ wide (the diameter of each shelf).  The Tristan Bar Cart retails for about $399.  But, Pottery Barn typically has 15% off coupons for signing up for their email list.  They also periodically run 20% off + free shipping sales.  So, try to take advantage of a promo when possible to save some moolah.


Getting the Tristan Bar Cart itself was only half the fun.  Helen got right to decorating it with: Pellegrino bottles for a splash of color, a bottle of St. Germain, a frame from Michaels, a monogrammed cup from Anthropologie, and a style book from Nordstrom.  So you could definitely use this as a functioning bar cart, more of a decorative piece that you could style a hundred different ways, or a little of both.  Since the time we purchased the cart, we’ve changed up the random decor pieces on top several times.

We’re happy with our purchase and happy to see that our dining room is almost complete.  Click here to read about our Grand Palais Mirrors from Ballard Designs that we hung up at the far end wall of our dining room and we will be posting about our Restoration Hardware Buffet console soon.

Happy hunting for your next furniture/décor piece!
