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