We’ve seen our share of buffets and sideboards as well as sideboard cabinets and most of them are pretty mainstream with designs that serve the functions they’re meant to but other than that don’t exactly impress. Every once in a while, however, we come across something outstand, something exquisite like a sideboard that stands out thanks to its unusual shape or a cabinet that’s eye-catching in a totally unexpected way.
There’s obviously some resemblance between the Heritage Sideboard and ginger jars from China or hand-painted tiles from Portugal. Similar to these, the sideboard from Boca do Lobo features a mesmerizing design with several layers, each telling a different story and together creating a wonderful big picture.
It’s shaped like a jewel and it has a name that reflects that. The Diamond sideboard has a sculptural design, with two doors that reveal a gold leaf interior fitted with shelves and a drawer. This version has a silver leaf finished exterior mixed with a chocolate brown high gloss varnish. The base, which completes the sculptural form, is made from mahogany and lined with bronze mirror.
The Diamond sideboard featured just now tells a beautiful story and that story continues with a new chapter: Metamorphosis.The process of the metamorphosis is most often associated with insects, being reminiscent of the way in which caterpillars transform into butterflies. This concept was applied to this Boca do Lobo classic and the result was the Diamond Metamorphosis, a sideboard that seeks to provoke a reaction and to become the center of attention.
The Kahn sideboard is in a lot of ways an homage to the style of the architect Louis Kahn, as the name clearly suggests. The cabinet has a strong and dramatic presence, featuring brass details that blend with the glossy black surfaces and the black glass top. This is a luxurious piece that hides an elegant wooden interior in a caramel tone.
This is the Uluru sideboard, a unique piece of furniture inspired by nature in every way. The Uluru Mountain, found in Australia, featured beautiful colors that change throughout the day based on the angle and the intensity of the light. The color that prevails is the reddish hue of rust which is also the color chosen for the sideboard. It looks theatrical in combination with the brass base
The structure of the Alba sideboard is actually quite symmetrical, despite the apparently random pattern that defines its front panels. The sideboard is divided into three main sections. At the center, it has two drawers while the two sides are cupboards with adjustable shelves and built-in cable access points. That being said, you can use this unit as a media cabinet but also as a storage cabinet for hallways, bedrooms and other spaces.
