Richard Hornby designed Long John sideboard, by Fyne Ladye for Heals of London in solid afromosia wood.
A beautiful and rare example of high-quality 20th Century British design and build, this 1960's sideboard is a real statement piece. We have yet to find another of this size in this design on the market.
The smooth Mid Century lines are a delight and the warmth and grain of the wood is exquisite. With three main cupboards, and a set of four drawers to the left, including a fifth secret drawer at the top, there's also maximum storage space.
Designed with practicalities, as well as good looks, in mind this is a functional sideboard that has a few hidden qualities. Open the left hand side door and you will discover a removable tray (ready to take your drinks to your guests). On the right hand side, pull open the top drawer and you'll see it's compartmentalised to take your cutlery or media gadgets. Directly above this is a hidden drawer, which also has compartments for neat storage.
Built from quality solid afromosia, apart from the door fronts, this is a magnificent sideboard at 236cm long. Perfect for a large dining room or living area. The top is contoured with sculpted edging and the hinges are made from solid brass. The doors and drawers have curved, moulded recess handles.
A rarer Hornby design, due to the extra length and additional cupboard, this is one Mid Century sideboard that we guarantee you will covet. Perfect for those with larger living spaces.
A stunning addition to any large interior space.
