This week at the Old Cinema we are pleased to highlight two beautiful pieces of European Art Deco furniture from the early 20th century. Both of these lustrous sideboards feature distinctive walnut burl veneers that wrap seamlessly around the faces of the furniture emphasizing the symmetrical patterns inherent in the wood grain.

From Minerva Antiques: A unique Art Deco Sideboard by Laszlo Hoenig, known in his time as ‘a classic designer in a modern world’ his furniture is often described as a contemporary interpretation of a classical style. Resting on hand carved legs the casement is constructed from solid hardwood with butterfly Walnut veneered fronts, which are hand made using a book matching technique known as four-way matching.

The 2nd piece, from the 1930’s but originating from Austria is a three door Biedermeier walnut sideboard with book matched veneers, featuring a marble pull out/insert slab and original keys. This fantastically modern interpretation of the Biedermeier styling has been re-imagined as sideboard and would be well received in a dining room setting.
