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.
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.
The Diamond sideboard featured just now tells a beautiful story and that story continues with a new chapter: Metamorphosis.The process of the metamorphosis is most often associated with insects, being reminiscent of the way in which caterpillars transform into butterflies. This concept was applied to this Boca do Lobo classic and the result was the Diamond Metamorphosis, a sideboard that seeks to provoke a reaction and to become the center of attention.
