Displaying art collections

Contemporary Dining Room, Los Angeles

Interior designer Tracy Murdock designed this special “bottle wall” to house her client’s special miniature alcohol bottles collected from around the world for over 20 years. The wall was built out to form the niches where special fluorescent lighting tubes were installed behind each section. The Back wall is acrylic lined with rice paper. Then the acrylic “grids” were installed where there is a box for each bottle giving the effect that each is floating. Finally glass doors were installed to not only keep out the dust…but also “fingers” and to make the collection all the more important.
