Ever popular oak barrels in hotels, pubs and wine bars

Barrels are increasingly seen in pubs and hotels, as a visual reminder of bygone days when beer, wine and spirits were supplied in oak barrels. Sometimes they simply stand alone as a large visual statement or barrier. In other places they are cleverly turned into tables or chairs.

I love the imaginative use of old oak barrels to create in one setting, a sense of history, and in another a modern twist on a traditional theme. So, barrels can look equally at home in Ye Olde Tavern, as well as pride of place in the latest snappy wine bar or trendy hang out.
