Vintage Midcentury 1960s Austinsuite Slim Teak Sideboard
Made in the mid-late 1960s and designed by Frank Guille for British furniture maker, Austinsuite, this is a particularly elegant sideboard with slimline proportions and a clean, refined design. Originally a dressing table, it sits on long, tapered legs with castors, there are six teak drawers, providing practical storage space for whichever room this piece is placed in. Its lean and simple style (it was formally a dressing table) mean it’s a more versatile item of furniture than perhaps a more conventional sideboards that’s ‘heavier’ and more substantial by design, demanding space. This could, for example, be used in the living room with the TV on top. It’s beautifully crafted in teak veneer that’s richly toned and in fantastic condition, but it’s the contrasting stripe of rosewood across the drawer fronts which serve as hidden handles that elevate this sideboard and add a note of distinction.
This is an authentic, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good-excellent, used condition. We have lightly cleaned and polished the sideboard. It’s made from teak veneer and rosewood veneer. The drawers are in excellent condition and move with ease. The internal wood is clean and in good order. The sideboard sits on castors which roll with ease. These could be easily removed if you choose. The external wood is in very good condition. There are some very minor scuffs in line with its age but these are small and not particularly noticeable – please refer to our photos. The top surface which is usually the most marked area is in excellent shape. The original maker’s stamp can be seen in the middle drawer. Please browse all our photos for an accurate sense of the overall great condition of this piece. You would be very welcome to come and view too – just get in touch.
