This is a super cool, Scandinavian influenced, retro sideboard by famed mid century maker White and Newton. It has three very stylishly finished drawers, the top drawer with cutlery divider. To the left of the bank of drawers sits a drinks cabinet with a slide out serving tray. To the right is a spacious, shelved double cupboard space. The ‘hidden’ door handles really add to the sleek, minimalist appearance of this piece. 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 terrific sideboard is structurally sound and in super condition as we’ve had the exterior refinished by a professional furniture restorer. The two right hand cupboard doors need to be closed simultaneously – please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to see a video.
