Well, we bought a bar. Just look at it. Isn't it the most fabulous thing you've ever seen? It was made in Milan in the 1940s by Paolo Buffa, one of the most lively and prolific Italian architects of the early twentieth century. The cabinet doors are inlaid with malachite (too beautiful) and the mirrored interior glows, rather outrageously, bright pink and canary yellow. Naturally we had to christen the old girl Club Tropicana. Note the pineapple ice bucket on top - this cabinet and that ice bucket were clearly made for each other. A match made in tropical heaven.
