This mid century sideboard was made by Greaves and Thomas, a firm who created high end designer furniture for the British market. This stylish sideboard has a bank of four drawers to the right hand side, the top drawer with built-in cutlery divider. To the left of the drawers, there are double doors that open to reveal a large shelved cupboard space. This is a long sideboard with lots and lots of storage space inside.
Greaves & Thomas was a London based company with a history dating back to the early 1900’s. In the early years the company specialised in lounge furniture and upholstery. By the mid 20th century the company was producing a range of high end contemporary furniture – including sideboards, armchairs and even bedroom mirrors.
By the mid 1950’s and 60’s Greaves & Thomas, like many other British companies, hired trained designers to create contemporary furniture. Walter Cornell designed many pieces for the company during this time, his work featured clean lines and a Danish influence. In 1967 Greaves & Thomas was purchased by Schreiber to add quality and prestige to their furniture offering.
