drinks trol­ley or cabi­net?

Mad Men has been cred­ited with pre­cip­i­tat­ing the re­nais­sance of the drinks trol­ley, but we think it goes deeper than that. In this new age of ta­boo-free trans­parency, there is some­thing slightly furtive about clos­et­ing all your bot­tles of spirit away in a drinks cabi­net. Be­sides, trol­leys look pretty and hos­pitable, sug­gest­ing that al­most any­thing could be an ex­cuse for a party—even if, for most of the year, the Stoli, Sip­smith and post-pran­dial Fer­net Branca sit gath­er­ing a layer of dust. An ex­quis­ite ex­am­ple is this Nureyev trol­ley (right), from £4,900, Soane Bri­tain (www.soane.co.uk; 020–7730 6400)
