Joaquim Tenreiro (1906-1992)

Large sideboard (sold)
circa 1950

This elegant sideboard, entirely veneered with varnished jacaranda, presents four invisible drawers and opens with two double doors, closing with two keys. The inside is with painted and presents shelves. The whole stands on three large slender feet, with rounded edges, giving to this sideboard the lightness effect Tenreiro was looking for. The vein of the jacaranda is particularly enhanced thanks to the varnish and its veneer on all the faces.
