Holborn 5ft Sideboard

A closer look at Holborn

Holborn’s a sideboard for the more contemporary home in need of extra storage space – or one that’s keen to bring in a powerful, design-led contrast to their dining room or sitting room. But it’s not so ‘of-the-now’ that it loses its sense of heritage and craft, being made from oak and having carefully inlaid diagonal panels of timber to create a subtle chevron effect to add extra texture to your space. It’s a perfect partner to our Arundel collection.

Materials

Oak, because it’ll look more than good in your home. You can expect the odd knot here and the odd change in wood grain there (certainly when it comes to change in direction thanks to the geometric plank layout). Oak’s natural character means no two sideboards will ever look quite the same – but overall, it’s a well-balanced timber. On the front and side sections, we use oak wrapped over hardwood ply, because it’s a technique that means you’ll get less timber movement.  

Finish

All of our oak’s protected with our treatment oil – IsoGuard® – to make it easier to live with. Think of it as a defence barrier, but one that you’d never know was there, so all you can see is the natural, honey-coloured oak.

Storage space

The Holborn oak sideboard has a divider in the middle, giving you two compartments with an adjustable shelf inside each one. 

Design detail

Holborn has our Black-bronze hardware – a strong, dynamic contrast to classic oak. You’ll spy it on the tracks that the sliding doors run along, smoothly, quietly and bouncing soft to close.  

Design detail

There’s lots of elements to this design that make it more contemporary. The taller height and the slimmer size, more so than you’d see in Chichester, Suffolk or Henley is one. And the doors on each compartment that softly glide rather than opening out is a second.

Just so you know

Natural timber will always want to move. It’s going to expand and shrink as the temperature and humidity in your home changes, but there are specialist joinery techniques that can help to counteract the movement. And that’s exactly what we do, so although you might see a little movement in the timber over the seasons, it won’t change drastically.
