When looking for inspiration, we like to go off the beaten track every so often, and hunt for alternative looking design pieces, that sometimes may prove dificult to accept, or even use in a determined division of the home. Not for the faint hearted, here at B&C we have gone through a 7 piece selection of eclectic sideboards, which can be appreciated by the furniture collector or design aficionado.
A Bespoke Soho Sideboard by Boca do Lobo in beige and brown tones. Narrower and taller, it suits the room’s geometry perfectly.
Bat Eye, another Portuguese furniture studio, are the creators of the Gold sideboard, above. Resembling the precious metal in a raw state, with a fresh geometry, the Gold cerainly portrays bold taste and an apetite for innovative design.
Similarly, Boca do Lobo’s Metamorphosis sideboard’s look is so unique that it it hard to forget. Targetted at those with a discerning taste, and who aren’t easily impressed, this gallery piece sits in a realm of its own.
The Pixel on the other hand, is a little easier to “consume”. Bright and colourful, this splendid Cabinet is composed of over 1000 individual triangles.
The Picadilly sideboard by Boca do Lobo is a remarkable work of art, with unbelievable wood work influenced by London’s classic cosmopolitan architecture, and modern edge feeling.
It is the combination of textures, materials and differing geometry that lays the groundwork for a truly eclectic piece. The Silhouette, above, also draws inspiration from urban architecture and cosmopolitan footprint, but in this case, of Portugal’s northern city of Oporto.
The Barnacles sidebaord found is a limited edition garllery piece found in one of NYC’s most prestigious gallery’s, the Carpenters Workshop. Inspired by the concpet of sustainabilit and the recycling movement. Its author, Stuart Haygarth, is described as having an “unbelievable way of turning trash into something really damn cool”.
