Elegant crafted credenza or sideboard by Romweber. This beautiful piece is fabricated from lacquered walnut which has been finished in a neutral bisque color and displays five panels on the front each decorated with a raised hexagon. Positioned in the centre of three of these shapes are square ceramic tile pulls which are a mottled teal, white and bronze color with brass spacers. The far left and the far right doors on the cabinet open to reveal identical storage spaces. While the middle left door is hinged and can be pulled back to expose a shelved space and two slim pull out drawers to the right. The right middle door exposes the rest of this middle internal unit. The surface of this piece and the ends both have an border which blends attractively with the front panels of the cabinet. This sideboard is supported by a robust black metal frame which contrasts handsomely with the light, delicate shades of the cabinet. This piece is signed with the manufacturer's label to drawer - Romweber Furniture of Timeless Beauty.
This eye-catching piece would be a great addition as part of a classic, contemporary or mid-century modern hall, entry, dining room, living room, den, man (or woman!) cave, family room, office or bedroom. It would also be an apt choice in a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium.
