A sleek and stylish 1960s sideboard from the British maker Vanson, designed by Peter Hayward. This piece, with beautiful teak and rosewood grain patterns, benefits from four central drawers with rosewood drawer pulls. Inside the top drawer is a felt lined cutlery divider. Two shelved cupboard spaces, with hidden ‘handles’, sit either side of the drawers. The attractive shaping of the legs beneath the main cabinet is another design highlight of this sideboard. The convex shaping of the sideboard’s ends also sets it apart.
Peter Hayward established his reputation as a furniture designer in the 1950s -70s. With an impressive client list that included G-Plan, Parker Knoll, Greaves & Thomas, Uniflex, Race Furniture and not forgetting Heals and Son in London. Several of his designs were selected for the Design Council and Design Index and because this acclaim represented British design in the UK and abroad until his death in 2005.
In great condition with, as you’d expect, some small signs of age and use. The top of the sideboard is in super condition as we’ve had it refinished to a high standard by a professional furniture restorer. There are two small areas of appropriately coloured wax filler (see photos). These are almost unnoticeable due to their size and location.
