The Kahn sideboard is in a lot of ways an homage to the style of the architect Louis Kahn, as the name clearly suggests. The cabinet has a strong and dramatic presence, featuring brass details that blend with the glossy black surfaces and the black glass top. This is a luxurious piece that hides an elegant wooden interior in a caramel tone.
The structure of the Alba sideboard is actually quite symmetrical, despite the apparently random pattern that defines its front panels. The sideboard is divided into three main sections. At the center, it has two drawers while the two sides are cupboards with adjustable shelves and built-in cable access points. That being said, you can use this unit as a media cabinet but also as a storage cabinet for hallways, bedrooms and other spaces.
A lot of the unique sideboards that we chose to include here pay homage to something special. It’s no different for the Whakairo sideboard from Alma de Luce which has a design that takes inspiration from nature but also from the art of sculpting wood celebrated by the Maori – Whakairo culture. The sideboard is made of walnut wood and has a memorable, tapered structure.
Synthetic wicker was then invented, also in the US. This allowed it to become more durable and resistant to weather and pests. Modern wicker is usually made from rattan and it‘s really versatile. In fact, rattan furniture can fit in nearly any interior, also being very popular outdoors. It‘s appreciated for its casual and airy appearance, usually being associated with manual labor and unique hand-crafted designs.
