This is a very stylish vintage sideboard with beautiful grain patterns to the wood. Made by renowned mid century maker, Jentique, in the 1960s, this sideboard has a bank of three drawers, the top one with felt lined cutlery dividers. In the centre is a capacious, shelved double cupboard. To the right hand side, this piece has a drop-front drinks cabinet, with an angled shelf that allows extra space for storing taller bottles. We’re listing this piece as teak but the sideboard has eye-catching and unusual walnut type grain patterns so there’s a strong possibility that this is the rarer walnut version of this cabinet. An excellent piece of retro furniture, this compact teak sideboard is perfect for any modern living space.
Jentique Furniture was a mid-century English firm that followed the Danish-design taste of the times. Before founding Jentique, Geoffrey Jenkins was well known as a toymaker. In 1932, he designed a water driven hydraulic toothbrush. It was destined for failure. While the “Kavor” toothbrush didn’t find a market, Jenkins did succeed with a well manufactured gramophone. It was the gramophone that led him to focus on furniture-making under the name Jentique Furniture. During the late 1950s and 60s Jentique specialised in modern, contemporary furniture. It capitalised on the trend toward clean Danish lines. Today, Jentique furniture from the mid century retro period has become prized for its elegant proportions, attractive design and excellent build quality.
Condition is super as we’ve had the sideboard refinished to a high standard by a professional furniture restorer.
