This very rare teak credenza or "highboard" just came over from Denmark this winter, and is a superb example by renowned Danish designer Arne Vodder for the high-end cabinetmaker Sibast. Uncommon in the United States, highboards were an integral part of Danish interiors in the 1960s. In typical Scandinavian fashion, a whole lot of usefulness and style is packed into one piece of furniture. This piece features elegant tambour doors that disappear completely into the sides when opened, Vodder's signature contrasting oak base, and truly outstanding handmade details and craftsmanship. This piece was crafted by hand by the best cabinetmakers in Denmark in the 1950s. This piece will certainly last for many more generations and increase in value.
The beautiful contrasting birch interior features 3 sliding felt-lined drawers and 5 adjustable shelves. Below are four locking drawers with original key. Faint Sibast "No. 54" stamp can just be made out on reverse. This piece is in excellent vintage condition with the following to note: small chip on edge of left door; one ring on the top (because the piece is so high, this is not as noticeable as it would be on a low sideboard) ; interior shelving has some light stains and some shelf pegs were broken off in the holes, limiting shelf placement somewhat.
