Full disclosure: we are a bit on the fence about this product, so we’re throwing this discussion out to you, our loyal (and opinionated) audience for feedback. Do we love these uber-contemporary wine storage ‘racks?’ I hesitate to even call them racks – they are perforated stainless steel tubes, which make up a racking system. Not wanting to seem SO old school that I can’t embrace new technology; after all, I have a decidedly contemporary bent when it comes to furnishings, so I find I’m asking myself as well as you: do we love these or not?
Made in Canada by Vinox Concept, they are made of sturdy stainless steel and the fact that it is a racking system; meaning it can be built up in a number of different formats and styles – even with lights, makes it very flexible.
Is this something you’d use in your home as a storage system for your wine? Perhaps used in the kitchen, next to other stainless steel appliances? If you are storing winesSorry, there are no polls available at the moment. that need not be completely temperature controlled, I could make a case for having this provide additional storage for some bottles, but perhaps it’s the mother in me that makes me think that it’s an accident waiting to happen (children – stop running around the wine tube!)
Do you see my dilemma? Wanting to embrace the new, but needing a bit more involvement with the product (after all, did I love the iPod at first? Well, ok, bad example because yes I did.) So I am asking you, dear reader — do you love it? Prefer to leave? Or have a suggestion for an ideal installation in which case please leave a comment below.
