This stunning vintage sideboard is a substantial piece of mid century cabinetry. A rare model, this piece has an obvious Scandinavian design influence. A quality vintage sideboard with 3 drawers set above its capacious cupboards, the central space being a drop-front drinks cabinet. The position and profile of the legs are a highlight of this piece. Other design features include those attractive door handles.
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.
In super condition, with fantastic grain patterns, we’ve had the exterior refinished by a professional furniture restorer.
