Paul Frankl - sideboards

Sideboard - version 1
New Paul Frankl Art Deco Skyscraper style wood and lacquered/painted sideboards

These sideboard designs draw heavily on Frankl's furniture, especially his bookcases & desks. They take elements from many of his desks and other furniture to produce new pieces, but with that unmistakeable Frankl Skyscraper look. The starting point for the desks on this page was his largest bookcase desk, maybe his most complicated piece, we took the base section and adapted that to a sideboard. Then we added a matching top and various base supports for that top. The x4 stepped base is striking, and the high stepped plinth gives the piece such a crispness of design. The support end carries on the look with the vertical stepped pieces. The top follows the shape of the stepped base - this can be adapted in length as required, within reason. Under the top there are a couple of full extension drawers, which are handleless for a cleaner look.

The sideboard offers lots of worktop space and storage/display compartments offering good storage. Then you have a couple of drawers for more smaller storage items. If you want more storage we could either add a bookcase top section, as shown below, or choose from any of the freestanding Frankl bookcases. The sideboard here is shown as a wood finish with black keylines, but this could be finished as a lacquered painted piece, in any of the usual Frankl colours or in any colours you want. The dimensions of such pieces, as they are made bespoke, can be changed to your preferred sizes. Such a sideboard is a substantial piece of furniture, and complicated to make and assemble - they are not cheap, least of all to ship. If you are on a budget these probaby aren't for you. We don't disclose dimensions, further details or prices until we've agreed a spec. with a customer.

This version has a different worktop suppport end. We incorporated a dropped down base from a Frankl desk, emphasising that stepped Skyscraper look. Below is another example of how the sideboard can be adapted to include a bookcase top section. This is a striking skyscraper look addition, and offers plenty of storage and display space. This is really substantial piece of furniture.
