delightful deviation #4

Saturday, 24 September 2011

As our quest for the ultimate sideboard continues, we couldn't not feature this compact - and alas too small for our needs - sideboard.  Now, we know very little about sideboards, but we understand this little gem was designed by Nils Jonsson for Hugo Troeds.  Does this make a difference?  Well, no, not to us ...... but what does are the drawers handles.  Yeap, the handles!  Their shape is simply delightful - and if one looks closely at the last photograph, one can see how perfectly the cupboard door slots behind them when opened fully.  Dreamy!

  1. Gimme! I need one. Those small drawers are so perfect for storing prints. It's like a flat file!

  2. Oh, that IS dreamy. I think I'd have to leave it open all the time, just to show off how those handles work!

    What is it about sideboards/credenzas that makes them so irresistible? We got three new ones, and I spent the afternoon swooning over them.

  6. It's actually designed by Yngve Eckstrom for Troeds.
