Danish Skovby Teak Sideboard with Drawers
Dating from the 1980’s this Skovby teak sideboard is one of the most solidly constructed pieces we’ve ever come across! Skovby hail from Denmark and has a superb reputation for making fine quality, classic Scandinavian furniture. We believe this dates from the early 1980’s so not a wildly vintage piece but it’s a very handsome item, offering lots of storage for a busy home or work place. The design is clean and unfussy with rounded edges which lend a softness and flow to this chunky sideboard. It’s the patina of the teak that’s the star of the show here with its golden honey tones.

This is an original, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in excellent condition. We have cleaned and polished it. The cupboard doors align and their closures work as they should. There is a height adjustable shelf in each cupboard and the support pegs are all present. The five drawers move with ease and are clean, and the top two are lined with green baize. There are some minor marks and scuffs but this is in line with its age. On the top surface there is a darker area, most likely where something hot has been placed. It’s not unsightly or particularly jarring – please refer to our photos. That said, it is always the top of sideboards that get the most wear and we would think that once in position, an item displayed on this handsome piece would obscure this. We can see no signs of repair nor have we undertaken any repairs ourselves. The original maker’s label can be found stuck to the back of the piece. Please browse our photos for an accurate sense of the condition of this piece. It’s worth noting that this is an exceptionally heavy piece. This is no bad thing but it’s not easily moved around, nor is it a piece that can be readily dismantled for ease of movement.
