Modern wine fridge hides behind bamboo

Though wine is ancient, wine accessories and appliances are often quite modern. However, as popular as shiny metal and a sophisticated black satin finish may be, there are other options when it comes to wine decor--like bamboo.

Underneath all the bamboo of the Haier HVTS16AMB 16-Bottle Bamboo Cabinet Wine Cellar there is still a modern wine refrigerator, complete with a double-pane insulated glass door and three full-width chrome storage racks (with wood facings) that can store up to 16 bottles. The electronic controls are front-mounted and feature a decidedly modern blue LED panel for displaying temperature information. A soft interior light rounds out the visual aspects of the wine cellar.

Though most appliance manufacturers tend to incorporate modern design elements in all of their offerings, the almost rustic appearance of this wine refrigerator is appealing. However, modern sensibilities require modern solutions, and this appliance delivers in that regard. Complete with an ultraquiet thermoelectric cooling system that doesn't require the use of a noisy compressor, the wine fridge offers style and substance--two qualities appreciated in any era.
