Every modern home deserves a stylish sideboard
Sideboard Nostalgia and Versatility
Is there any single piece of furniture that’s quite as nostalgic as a “sideboard“? Everybody’s grandparents had one. They were full of wedding present china, embroidered table linen, “Sunday Best” cruet sets and felt bottomed placemats. The drawers, with their green baize lined sections, held cutlery that was wonderfully tarnished and always in need of a good “spit and polish”.
Sounds wonderfully romantic doesn’t it, but perhaps a tad old-fashioned. Well, to be fair, the sideboard has been around for centuries. In its time it’s been called many different names: a buffet, a cocktail or drinks cabinet, a credenza, a chiffonier, a console, and even just a plain old cupboard. It is truly the workhorse of the furniture world.
But whatever you call it, there’s no denying, that the sideboard is an incredibly versatile piece of furniture that’s as relevant today as it has ever been.
Take this stunning mid century sideboard from the 1970s. With its iconic square panelling and beautiful honeyed teak tones, it’s instantly recognisable as a piece by the famed Nathan Furniture Makers.
Nathan Furniture Makers were renowned for their stylish versatility. As their popularity grew, so did their range. The clean design lines and “modular” feel, give each piece flexibility and a versatility that allows it to effortlessly blend in with so many different mid century and modern design themes and schemes.
Customising your Nathan Mid century Sideboard
Classic and elegant in its original design, this sideboard becomes contemporary, stylish, and bang on trend with a restyle of mineral paint in this example using the colour “Bayberry”. This has been sympathetically, and cleverly, paired with a natural oil to highlight the gorgeous teak wood grain.
Add new hardware in the form of drawer handles, and new legs that match the main body perfectly, and you have mid century piece that is completely relevant to the modern home.
This sideboard has been restyled and refinished to give you an idea of the endless possibilities with these gorgeous pieces. They are completely customisable and can be finished in any colour, with hardware and extras, to suit your personal style and design.
Whether you want to use it as a drinks cabinet, media unit or in this case storage for games in the family room, the Nathan brand is synonymous with good style.
So, please do get in touch for more information and together we can recreate a little piece of furniture history, one that will grace your home for many years to come, because, let’s be honest, style never goes out of fashion does it?
