Tech Tuesday – Episode #28 – Green Marble and Mahogany Wood

March 22nd, 2011

Can you believe how fast time flies? One Tech Tuesday ago, we were just whistling a fine tune to the beautiful wine cellar featuring the gorgeous Amber Blaze Mahogany wood choice the client opted to go for.  To mark the near end of a really great month especially when it comes to custom wine cellars, we’re bringing you what we’d like to call a “knockout combo” with our celebrated Platinum Series collection and what else? Amber Blaze Mahogany, of course!

So why don’t we take you on the grand tour of this newly commissioned custom wine cellar? These shots they sent us made us sigh in satisfaction at how well the racking options fused together to create a truly inspiring look.

What: Residential Wine Cellar
Project #: 203886
Wood: Amber Blaze Mahogany with a Classic Mahogany Stain

Green Marble and Mahogany Wood

This is the full frontalview of this wine cellar which basically utilizes our Standard Archway design as some of the best pieces from the Platinum Series collection: Quarter Round Display Cabinet, Solid Diamond Bins with X interlocks, Single Deep and Double Deep Individual Bottle Storage, adjustable Shelf Cabinets, and LED lighting for all high reveals. To top it all off, feast your eyes on the breathtaking hand-painted mural that graces the archway and exterior entryway.

Curves and corners are a particular specialty of our design consultants here at WCI as this photo proves just that. The radius curved corner bottle wine display works like a charm to maximize storage options and at the same time give the wine cellar a really smooth and sleek appearance. And isn’t that green marble countertop just the perfect fit? The stained finish of the wood somehow becomes more defined owing to the marble accent.

Now let’s evaluate the multiple storage options you can get out of the Platinum Series.  Here, our ingenious design consultants combined individual bottle storage wine racking with Diamond Wine Racks meant for bulk storage. Notice that box-like shelf at the center? That’s the vertical display for champagne bottles. The effect of the entire set-up is a fully functional and highly efficient wine storage system with a truly elegant allure.

Let’s take a closer look at the wine racks. The wood looks rich and luxurious, doesn’t it? Well, we might as well tell you right now that Amber Blaze Mahogany is by no means just photogenic! Even unstained, it boasts of a profoundly dark, reddish brown color which actually shrieks “opulence” every step of the way.

The racks here were coated with Classic Mahogany stain, bringing out a deeper, more vivid hue. Because Amber Blaze lends itself to stains and finishes, notice how much more solid everything looks as compared to wine cellars built with some other wood choice. Here’s something to take note of as well: Amber Blaze is not exactly the cheapest wood option because apart from being one of the more popular choices for luxury wine cellars, it is quite dense and hard which translates to high-level durability. Milling and fabricating this wood is not exactly a no-brainer either which would also explain why it’s a more costly yet worthwhile investment.

Notice the paneling above that tastefully encompasses the WineZone unit to keep these wines at the perfect temperature.

Making use of LED lighting for all high reveals is usually a popular design option and it certainly was the right one for this wine cellar. We just love how everything looks so polished and spanking new!
