Sideboard no. 142 comes in two lengths: 210 cm (83”) and 165 cm (65”) and is the first of the mid-century sideboards relaunched by Bernh. Pedersen & Søn.
The sideboard was designed in 1965 and taps into the essence of Danish Modern with its clean lines, functional design and expert craftsmanship.
The piece features tambour doors that roll seamlessly into the back. A rare technique today that is not only pleasing to the eye, but also functionally ideal as it minimizes the space needed. The interior of the cabinet is beautifully finished with shelves on each side and a middle section with optional pull-out dovetail trays for added storage. The curved front edges are constructed in solid wood as are the tambour doors, base and legs. To add extra detail to the design, the legs are pulled slightly under the sideboard to account for skirting, making it possible to place the piece up close to the wall. With a veneered back it can also find great use as a room divider. The eloquent lines and high quality cabinetmaking are sure to make this piece of furniture look beautiful in any setting.
The sideboard is available in oak, walnut, teak or rosewood in either oil, soap or lacquer finish. On request the piece can be custom-made in almost any type of wood. The dovetail trays come in two optional heights of either 5 or 11,5 cm and are easily adaptable to the middle section.
Every piece is made in Denmark and individually numbered upon final assembling.
Bernh. Pedersen & Søn, a Danish furniture maker, has a long and strong tradition in furniture and cabinetmaking stretching all the way back to the company’s start in 1902. Through three generations the family firm has created and sold classic Danish furniture to many parts of the world. The period 1950 – 1970 in particular was characterized by some of the most stunning and well-executed pieces in Bernh. Pedersen & Søn’s history. Especially the classic mid-century sideboards and daybeds designed by Danish furniture designers, including the Danish world-renowned Johannes Andersen, Svend Aage Madsen and Kurt Østervig were – and still are – highly valued by customers worldwide.
In 2015, fourth generation in the family, Thomas Bernhard Pedersen re-established the company and started focusing exclusively on re-launching some of the exquisite sideboards designed in the 50’s and 60’s.
