1 in stock


This is a perfect little sideboard to squeeze in to a room where wall space is limited. The integrated door handles and drawer pulls are a fantastic feature of this piece and these convey a clear Scandinavian design influence, typical of the mid-century period. This gorgeous vintage sideboard has 3 drawers set between its two cupboard spaces and offers all the storage space you could ask for. The top drawer has sections inside to divide up cutlery, etc and both cupboard spaces house internal shelves.

Nathan furniture was established in 1916 by Barnett Nathan. His vision was to design beautiful, elegant furniture, offering quality and value. In 1963, Nathan went Scandinavian. Their advertisements proclaimed ‘Scandinavian Design By Nathan’. Nathan’s first range of teak furniture was called ‘Citadel’. It had a classic Scandinavian low, long sideboard, which was simple and elegant with no decoration other than plain recessed handles. At 6 feet in length, it was still large and provided ample storage, but was more suited to a semi-detached house than the massive 7ft sideboards that some of the more expensive firms sold.

Nathan introduced several other dining suites on the same theme: modern, Scandinavian inspired, designs in teak. All began with the letter “C”: Corsican, Corinthian and Cortina. In the late 60s Nathan moved further upmarket. Many manufacturers were making teak furniture, so designs needed to be original. They introduced several new designs in teak. These new designs continued into the early 70s. Nathan then took a different course, with their furniture of the 70s acquiring a more traditional look.
