Vintage Dutch mid-century sideboard in oak veneer. This sideboard looks very much like the oak series sideboards by Cees Braakman for Pastoe. It has the same veneer, drawers, grips, locks and hinges. We think this a very early item made by Pastoe and a predecestor of the famous oak series by Cees Braakman.
The credenza has two drawers (one for cutlery), a storage space with a drop down door and a storage space with a side door.
Beautiful and early Ducth mid-century design.
In good vintage condition with traces of use to the oak veneer.
Cees Braakman was a Dutch furniture designer who worked for UMS Pastoe in the mid-century. He designed many beautiful pieces with the “U+N series”, better known as the “Japanese Series”, as his most famous. In the 1940s, Braakman was sent to the United States to observe design and production processes of furniture. Inspired by the works of Charles and Ray Eames, he started working with new materials like ply-wood and steel, which were used in many of his designs. Many items of his hand are now well known Dutch design classics, such as his DU03 sideboard, TU11 dining table, SB02 dining chair, MM07 sofa, TB16 coffee table, EB02 desk, FM06 lounge chair and CU06 high board.
