This is a super cool, Scandinavian influenced, minimalist retro sideboard by famed mid century maker White and Newton. It has three drawers to the left, the top one with cutlery divider. In the centre there is a drinks cabinet with a drop down door front and a cool little slide-out serving tray hidden under the top of the sideboard. To the right is a shelved cupboard that sits behind stylish bi-fold doors. The ‘hidden’ drawer and door pulls really add to the sleek, minimalist appearance of this piece. This is a genuinely stunning mid century sideboard!
A strong linear form defines the stylish furniture produced by British furniture maker White and Newton. White and Newton of Portsmouth were on the cutting edge of furniture design and production in Britain throughout the mid 20th century. Under the design direction of the talented Arthur Edwards, the firm produced stunning high end furniture often defined by its clean modern lines and stark linear form. The company favoured the use of teak as a staple design material but also on occasion embraced luxurious timbers such as rosewood for its high end aesthetic. White and Newton furniture was a hit with trendsetters of the day and today the timeless designs remain cool and contemporary.
This piece is in super condition. A little piece of veneer is missing at the rear, bottom right hand side of the sideboard (see photo) but, due to its location, this is very unnoticeable.
