Tech Tuesday – Episode #27 – Amber Blaze Mahogany

March 15th, 2011

What happens when you see a beautiful wine cellar?

We’ll tell you what happens to us: we get weak in the knees. You know that feeling when you’re in-love? It’s kind of like that, only the object of your affection is a wine collection perfectly displayed in a pretty wine cellar.

It’s amazing how beauty and function come together in a well-built cellar. In last week’s Technical Tuesday for example, we featured a small wine closet that shows you that a small space is no obstacle, and that size doesn’t matter! It’s all in the details. Why, it was so pretty that one of our friends in Twitter even said she wanted it for herself!

Today we have another residential wine cellar featuring one of our favorite wood types – Amber Blaze Mahogany.

What: Residential Wine Cellar
Project #: 195467-8
Wood: Prime Mahogany
Maximum capacity:  1717 bottles
Where: Pearl River, LA

Residential Wine Cellar Prime Mahogany

As you can see, the Reine’s cellar has most of the Platinum Series‘ best elements: single deep and double deep individual storage, high reveal display racks, solid diamond bins, LED lights, a standard archway, pretty quarter round shelves and a hanging glass rack, which, we hope you didn’t mistake for a small chandelier. Or did you?

And here’s something you don’t see often: cabinets with mesh panel doors! It’s got a great locker style look, and we love its mesh door panels  — decorative, and great for visibility and ventilation, while maintaining security.

Classic Mahogany Wine Cellar

So let’s proceed to taking in more this wine cellar’s luxurious appeal, which is attributable to Prime Mahogany. We’re just loving the rich, red overtones in this wine room!

Prime Mahogany is a type of wood that lends itself to stains and finishes, and here, the wine racks were stained in Classic Mahogany. Other stain options include light, dark walnut and midnight black. The same is true for the lacquer options. (We think you should see one of our Tech Tuesdays that featured the Prime stained in dark walnut – truly gorgeous!) You can also go bare and have the racks go unstained, but we love how the color of the wood varies with different stains and lacquers.

Platinum Series Mahogany Stained

The Platinum Series offers the widest variety of wine storage options in a full-depth style. As you can see here, the different types of wine racks were put together nicely to create a seamless look, utilizing every space very efficiently.

Traditional Wine Cellar Archway

Here, we see the traditional wine cellar archway, but if you ask us, there’s nothing “traditional” about it. It looks truly classy in that reddish brown color. And what about that smooth angled curved corner? These types of custom wine racks are constructed utilizing four 22 1/2 degree angles, forming a 90 degree transition from wall to wall, which allows the racking to flow around the wine cellar with no sharp corners.

Gorgeous Solid Diamond Bins

Ah, this one’s got to be one of our favorite photos in this set. The red racks are truly beautiful up close!  Notice the gorgeous solid diamond bins below. Strong and sturdy,  they allow you to display wines in bulk creatively.
