Alessio’s Wine and Liquor Cabinet a Feature in the Michigan Design Center’s 40th Anniversary Party

A custom cabinet was made for this special event as a sample of how a wine cellar can be a piece of fine furniture.

The cabinet was made of oak with a custom blended gray tone stain and glazing finish. It is 50″ wide by 24″ deep and 36″ tall and has diamond bins for two cases of wine plus two roll-out shelves for glasses and liquor bottles.

The furniture was featured in the Detroit News Homestyle section on May 12, 2017.

Writer Maureen Feighan’s article stated:

“A handcrafted wine and liquor cabinet by Michael Alessio of Alessio Custom Interiors in Howell was the starting point for Julie Byrne’s French vignette in Decoroom (Suite 37), which pays tribute to France’s Beaujolais Nouveau Day in France. ‘You can make it any size, any color, any style,’ says Byrne, running her hand over the oak cabinet. Anchoring the vignette is a Ghiordes Knot rug, on which sits a dining table from Keystone. Two garden stools offer extra seating and a custom-made trellis woven with faux grapevines and twinkle lights gives the space a very French feel. Byrne says she wanted to create a space that feels like it could work indoor or outdoors.”
