Vintage 1960s Solid Teak ‘Volnay’ Sideboard by John Herbert for A Younger

A very fine, British, vintage sideboard designed by John Herbert as part of his Volnay range for A Younger in the 1960s. Made in solid teak, this is a heavy (literally!), substantial piece providing you with a great deal of practical storage. And yet, despite this, it has retained an elegance and femininity with curves at the front edge and the ends. We particularly love the rather over-sized, round handles. Although midcentury, its design feels more traditional so it would be at home alongside pieces from different eras, in different styles. A super piece of attributed British mid century design.

This original, vintage piece is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good, used condition. It has been thoroughly cleaned inside and out, and the top surface has been oiled and polished to give a durable but authentic finish. The drawer fronts and other exterior wood has had a natural beeswax polish applied but otherwise the original finish has been left alone as it’s in such good order. All four drawers slide with ease, feature dovetail joints and have clean, tidy interiors with only light signs of wear. The top cutlery drawer is green felt-lined and sectioned. The two cupboards are clean and tidy inside with just light marks. They each have a fixed shelf. There are minor knocks and marks here and there in line with its age, including a small lighter blemish on the top drawer front which we’ve shown in our photos. Overall it’s very well constructed, solid and stable. Sadly the maker’s plate is no longer in place inside the door but this is a well-documented design that we attribute with confidence. Do browse our photos for a good sense of condition but if you’ve any questions or would like to view this piece, just get in touch.
