A very large Vintage Mid Century Teak, Afromosia and Sapele Knighstbridge sideboard/credenza designed by Robert Heritage for Archie Shine.
Standing at just over 244cm in length the Knightsbridge really was the Grand Daddy of all Heritage’s amazing sideboards; not to mention the combination of wood that gave it a wonderfully aesthetic appeal. It’s therefore a long sideboard that would naturally suit a large room or hallway.
The drawer section is ribbed Afromosia (which is a harder African teak variant with a richer darker colour) whereas the main cupboard and top section is a more traditional golden teak. But in addition, Heritage has finished the main doors off in Sapele which is a lighter cross cut Mahogany variant that creates a ribbon grain effect as it catches the light – the doors can therefore look lighter or darker in colour as you walk around the piece.
As regards storage, there’s a lot on offer. The sideboard has 4 large drawers with beautifully detailed handles and with stylised ribbed fronts – and then there are two sets of doors which reveal two large two tier storage sections. And finally, a lovely detail is the raised lip at the back which stops your keys and nick nacks falling behind the unit!
All in all then it’s a wonderful sideboard, that’s not only incredibly stylish but also very practical with loads of storage space; and that’s also presented in very good vintage condition.
And even better, Heritage's pieces have started to really shoot up in value over the last couple of years. He's often been overlooked in the past but that's changing now as in the mid range bracket for sideboards (around 2 - 4k), his sideboards are every bit as good as whatever the Danes produced in the same price bracket.
