Wine connoisseurs looking to add unique pieces to collections throughout their home will find the perfect barrels, wall art, bars and more with the amazing company Barrel-Art!
The Hampton, Virginia, company began when owner Mike Prieto found a love for woodworking after losing his belongings in a fire. Prieto and his wife, Kambra needed furniture immediately so he learned the trade to build what the most important pieces. After visits to various European wineries, Prieto created a bar out of a wooden barrel, leading to interest in his new creation. From that point on, Prieto received so many requests for other items that he brought Barrel-Art to life.
Prieto’s traditional barrels are perfect decorative pieces for any room. They originate from France and Spain and include dates, toasting notes or origin stamps on the dark walnut, red mahogany, natural or plain finishes. These barrels can serve as end tables, nightstands or dining room decor and bring the wine country into your home!
The wine bars of Barrel-Art are even more beautiful pieces to display your wine collection. The traditional barrel bar, Barrel-Art’s first creation, features two doors that open to reveal shelves to slide in your favorite drinks. Rich finishes of natural, red mahogany or dark walnut will fit into any style decor. Open barrel bars are stained red on the inside from the red wines once held there, and the open sides allow for perfect showcasing of bottles. If you want to show off spirits in addition to wine, pick up a barrel with an additional shelf and a lazy Susan!
