Pride of Place
Designer Dave Rasmussen does double duty at Grizzly Iron Works and Everett Custom Homes/West Hills Homes NW and pulled together this one-of-a-kind, glass-enclosed wine display for the Pacific Usonia home at the 2019 NW Natural Street of Dreams. Working with chief operating officer Brad Hosmar, who designed the home, the team turned a traditional butler’s pantry into a dedicated wine display and serving area.
“We wanted to create a focal point and a creative way of displaying wine,” Rasmussen said.
The custom wine display rack system was built to hold 80 standard and magnum-size bottles, 40 on each side of a custom hinged support gate. The walls self-lock into position with spring-loaded pins that you can access from the inside, which allows the two sides to open with a flourish.
