This vintage mid century teak sideboard on hairpin legs has great retro style and was designed and manufactured by G-Plan in the 1960s. The sideboard would make an ideal television unit, record or drinks cabinet and the doors have a fantastic action that allows them to slide seamlessly behind one another on cleverly designed tracks.
Although most of the British public reverted to traditional tastes after the war, there was a small but growing market for high-quality, modernist furniture, and G-Plan successfully spoke to this younger, more progressive audience. Through clever marketing campaigns, G-Plan set the standard for modernist, mass-market furniture in post-war Britain. G-Plan’s C Range, with an aesthetic that celebrated its machine production, was launched in 1953, and by 1957 it had become enormously popular.
By the 1960s, the Scandinavian look was sweeping international design, and British-made furniture was being outsold by Danish imports. To compete, G-Plan brought in Danish designer Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921-2003) to create new collections in fine woods, like teak and rosewood.
Structurally sound and in very nice condition with minor signs of age and use to the top surface.
