This modernist sideboard was made in Scandinavia during the 1960s. It is finished in walnut wood with a highly valued grain arrangement. The characteristic swirls and matting of the grain lines, together with the deep colors, give the illusion of an alternating shimmering wood pattern. The colors are deep, which gives the wood elegance, and the flashes of other colors add to it’s uniqueness. The front consists of three sliding doors with wooden handles, decorated with hand-painted blue linear pattern. The front compass legs give nobility to the object.
The sideboards have been partially restored keeping it’s natural patina. This is a piece of furniture finished according to the rules of the Upcycled Vintage course. it’s form is original and dates from the 20th century, but the final finish has been changed by artistic invention or composition of parts from different original object. All treatment are performed by traditional methods, are consistent with the aesthetic of the age from which the furniture comes from and support the Zero Waste idea.
