SKYE SIDEBOARD BY TOM ROBERTSON & VAL ROSSI FOR A.H. MCINTOSH & CO
Excellent piece from the iconic Scottish label A.H. McIntosh & Company. Teak wood sideboard, which came onto the British market in the early 1960s, thanks to the genius of its design department, which at that time was headed by Tom Robertson and Val Rossi; Between them they altered the course of McIntosh, from the traditional to the contemporary, and one of the designs that begins this path of more Scandinavian orientation is the one they contemplate, which they called Skye. Its minimalist lines, with perfect proportions, together with a careful work of notable cabinetmaking, manage to balance aesthetic excellence and functionality. The front is made up of a trio of drawers on each side (the upper one on the left with compartments and upholstered base) that flank a double central door, behind them a large space with an elegant two-deep shelf. To finish the legs they have metal risers located under them (adjustable in height, allowing a better accommodation of the furniture on uneven surfaces) a detail that reveals the quality of the seal that Alexander Henry McIntosh founded in 1821 in the small Scottish town of Kirkcaldy .
After passing through our restoration department, its condition is very good (mitigating the signs of use accumulated during more than half a century of life).
And remember: an impressive sideboard that will fit into any classy environment ;)
