A space needs to include heavy and sturdy decor items if you want it to look masculine. Delicate forms, curves, sleek lines and lightweight furnishings are the opposite of that. Look for materials such as solid wood and metal and make sure at least some of your furniture pieces have a solid and strong impact on the overall decor and ambiance of the space. Obviously, don’t exaggerate and also remember to balance out that heaviness with some glass accents, cozy fabrics and light colors.
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.
Modern wicker was initially developed as a basket weaving technique. In time, it evolved into furniture. By the 17th century, in Northern Europe, wicker looked a lot like it does today. The trend soon spread all over the world and became as popular and as common as it is today. Then, in the mid 19th century it reached the United States where it was quickly industrialized and mass-produced.
We’ve seen our share of buffets and sideboards as well as sideboard cabinets and most of them are pretty mainstream with designs that serve the functions they’re meant to but other than that don’t exactly impress. Every once in a while, however, we come across something outstand, something exquisite like a sideboard that stands out thanks to its unusual shape or a cabinet that‘s eye-catching in a totally unexpected way.
