While protection and proper storage was the first and main concern when starting this wine cellar project, this customer want to make sure that there was enough display options throughout the cellar, particularly for his limited Dom Perignon boxes. Integrated these angled quarter round shelves provided the display featured he needed which adds a beautiful color accent to this cellar.

Here he can open a bottle on this marble countertop and enjoy a bottle with friends while discussing some of their favorite Nicholson works of art.
