The part that I played in the creation of this bar involved the making of the cabinetry, shelving and soffit, which included the installation of spot lighting and ventilation fans that fit under the onyx countertop. Rope lights were placed underneath the counter to illuminate the stone, intensifying it’s grain and various hues. The design was conceived by the design group CMG International in Miami. They wisely chose a dark, yet dramatic finish for the wood faces so as not to compete with the stone, the emphasis to be put on the stone’s beauty and not the wood. The focal point is the intricately carved, Chinese sculpture in front of the large mirror. Some of the special features about the woodwork include a pair of pocket doors for the ice-maker and fridge and curved doors directly under the sink (all of which have push latch magnetic catches), and floating, glass shelves.
