Vigilant Custom Refrigerated Wine Cabinets for Union Commons in TN
In September of 2013, Vigilant began collaborating with Lynh Nguyen of LDN Interiors to design a wine display for the new Union Commons restaurant in Nashville Tennessee. After numerous discussions with Ms. Nguyen and Brett Davis, one of the owners, Vigilant created a conditioned wine display cabinet design to bring their vision of a modern, art deco style wine display to life. Brett, a partner with DC Management, is one of 135 sommeliers in the country to hold the ‘Master Sommelier’ designation. So, not only were aesthetics of importance, functionality and ideal serving and storage conditions were also critical components of the design.
With these goals in mind, Vigilant designed a 28′ long wine display that included ebonized mahogany cabinets with metal wine bottle displays, brushed brass metal accents and glass display shelves. At close to 9′ in height, a custom rolling ladder was added for easy access to the bottles stored in the top of the cabinets. Translucent acrylic panels back lit with LED lighting completed the dramatic look. On the functional side, the cabinets display 1000 standard size wine bottles and 48 magnum and champagne bottles while 3 self contained cooling units maintain ideal serving temperatures for both red & white wine.
Union Commons is scheduled to open in early Fall 2014. We wish them years of success and a multitude of clients to enjoy their remarkable wine collection displayed in these custom Vigilant wine cabinets.
