This mid century sideboard was made by Greaves and Thomas, a firm who created high end designer furniture for the British market. The sideboard has a bank of three drawers, the top drawer with felt-lined cutlery divider. To the right of the drawers is a drop-front cupboard with a slide-out tray in place. At each end of the sideboard there are storage spaces with removeable shelves. A long and capacious sideboard!
Greaves & Thomas was a London based company with a history dating back to the early 1900’s. In the early years the company specialised in lounge furniture and upholstery. By the mid 20th century the company was producing a range of high end contemporary furniture – including sideboards, armchairs and even bedroom mirrors.
By the mid 1950’s and 60’s Greaves & Thomas, like many other British companies, hired trained designers to create contemporary furniture. Walter Cornell designed many pieces for the company during this time, his work featured clean lines and a Danish influence. In 1967 Greaves & Thomas was purchased by Schreiber to add quality and prestige to their furniture offering.
