Whether there's a preference for cocktails that are shaken or stirred, The Sidebar's ready for all comers with some literal sleight of hand. Urbancase's handcrafted bar cabinet beckons with a laterally sliding panel that reveals adjacent compartments for glassware and liquor. A door swings to access additional storage and a pull-out drawer below can stash potables' paraphernalia. Urbancase founder Darin Montgomery and fellow Seattle designer Trey Jones' collaboration gets down to black and white–available in a whitewashed beached oak with black top or in black walnut with white. Can James Bond be somewhere near-about?
Darin Montgomery got his inauspicious start as a designer at about age 10, when he constructed a wineglass rack out of scrap wood from the family garage. He didn’t realize he needed to clamp the pieces together while the glue dried and so it fell apart when his mom picked it up. “It was known as ‘Frankenrack’ from then on,” he says.
Today, there’s nothing in the least bit scary about the luxuriously minimal furnishings from Urbancase, Darin’s Seattle-based firm. Starting out as a sculptor, he began to build custom furniture on a one-off basis. Working with partners Rachel Illingworth, Trey Jones and Brian Beck, the Urbancase portfolio has come to include furniture, lighting, textiles, tabletop objects and even custom interiors. Darin illustrates his pared-back philosophy with each elegantly reductive element.
