After the success of their initial partnership, design firm Yabu Pushelberg
has teamed up again with Avenue Road
to create a luxurious collection that’s focused on entertaining. The collection has strong geometric motifs and are made of elegant materials like glass, marble, and smoked brass.
Gin Lane is the epitome of modern entertaining. This bar cart has crisp angles to counter curvy glasses and bottles, and exudes elegance.
Pacific State is an elevated champagne bucket that’s fit for a special occasion. It has both polished and matte finishes, creating a sharp contrast to the bucket itself.
Nob Hill is a set of stools and side tables with an intriguing hexagonal shape. The top appears to be floating, and can be used as a stool, side table, or even a place to rest your accessories.
Finally, Darling Point is an aerodynamic desk that is not only pretty to work on, it
