About this item

Furniture from Shandong in north east China tended to be functional rather than sophisticated in design - built to withstand the extreme winters and sweltering summers of the region. This large sideboard is a good example, with its thick, solid frames and sturdy construction. Like most northern furniture, the material used is elm wood and this has a particularly attractive 'mountain like' grain on the doors and two side panels.The finish is a rich, honey colour bringing out the beauty of the wood. Two small drawers sit either side of the doors, which have a removable central post - another common feature in northern pieces. With three further drawers at the top, this piece works wonderfully as a contemporary sideboard, its simple design fitting easily into the most modern home.
