Taking inspiration from the very popular Scandinavian design, the RUSS Sideboard is a finely crafted statement piece. Constructed from solid rock maple timber and birch plywood, the outstanding feature of the RUSS Sideboard is its impressive façade. Each door is covered by ‘ruffles’, individually hand crafted from layers of rock maple veneer and displayed in a radial arrangement. The two-door sideboard features plenty of storage with two inside drawers, in plum coloured film face plywood for a colourful hidden feature. The sideboard boasts slightly splayed wood turned legs and beautiful brass hardware for a chic, retro look. Finished with a clear lacquer applied to highlight the attractive qualities of the timber grain, The RUSS Sideboard is a statement living room and lifetime piece.
