Livingston 'Old World' Wine Cellar
Joseph and Curtis designed and built an "old world" wine cellar for this particular client located in Livingston,NJ. The wine room began as nothing but an idea and a couple of sample boards. We all agreed to do something exotic and thus chose cypress with a pro-wiping stain to elevate the grains out of the cypress wood. The homeowner allowed the "professionals" to do what we do and thus had a tremendous amount of freedom with the design. The room is emphasized with double arched wrought iron doors and features custom wine barrel heads on the opposing wall. Dramatically, those same barrels were installed into the wine room in two niche spaces to the left and right of the opposite wall for an additional focal point. The ceiling of the wine cellar is a tongue and groove plank style, with a custom barrel ceiling and a distressed paint finish. Additionally, the paint finish is also repeated in the center arch where the unique cypress drawers are on full display. A warm Mexican terracotta stone floor was an amazing choice to bring out the old world charm and beauty. Added features such as a ductless split cooling system, beautiful sconces, and LED lighting, cap off this amazing space.
