This 6ft sideboard has great retro styling. A rare model, this sideboard has an obvious Scandinavian design influence, typical of the mid-century period. This gorgeous vintage sideboard has 3 drawers to the right of its two cupboard doors and offers all the storage space you could ask for. The top drawer has sections inside to divide up cutlery, etc and the two cupboards each have an internal shelf.

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.
