Kardiel 1959 Centurist Vodder Mid-Century Modern Sideboard Credenza, Walnut/Blue Drawers
Add a dash of color with this throwback modernist design. The subtle partial arch curves present on the top of the right hand facing sliding door and 5 pull out drawers are signatures of the designs introduced by Arne Vodder in the late 50’s and early 60’s. The middle of the century modernism used to be at its peak. It used to be a time when color used to be beginning to be mixed into furniture designs in concert with natural wood surfaces. The Centurist sideboard is an exceptional example of this coordination. Centurist features two left hand facing sliding drawers which conceal a large storage space for dishes, media or whatever you need to classically conceal. The body of Centurist is perched on top of a 4 legged modernism solid wood base. 5 colorful rail flow center drawers and 1 right hand facing walnut door complete the design.
