The sideboard is a work of harmony and contrast. A silhouette modestly situated among several commanding objects, it acts subserviently while maintaining a defined architectural vigor. Next to the plush Saarinen dining chairs and the rich ebony table, the sideboard gives a sleek appearance - as if to suggest its non-presence. But like a book, its beauty is revealed upon closer inspection. The clear-finished wood drawers and center shelf, made of solid fiddleback sycamore, draw the eye in and suggest a richness and depth beyond the capacity of a standard domestic hardwood veneer. While functioning in consonance with its surroundings, the sideboard exists for this moment of private surprise.
