Limited Edition, Large Emotion: Mondrian Sideboard by Boca Do Lobo

Poor Portugal doesn't get the attention it deserves, not as a country, a culture, or a design influence, but Boca Do Lobo is changing this sad state of affairs. The company fuses old world handcrafting with modern age aesthetics to produce artistic pieces of furniture: "BL's furniture is an exclusive emotional experience, a sense of belonging and a state of mind." Soon to be showing at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show from March 18-21, 2010, Boca Do Lobo will present some of their most notable pieces.

Mondrian Sideboard. Designed by Boca Do Lobo.

One of their limited edition designs is the Mondrian Sideboard, a millennial version of the Wooton Desk. If you love nooks and niches, then the Mondrian Sideboard won't disappoint: "This stunning sideboard is composed of a collection of styles and typologies of drawers." Like the famous lines of Dutch painter Piet Mondrian's nonrepresentational canvases, the BL sideboard includes squares and rectangles of varying sizes and finishes, from glass to leather to lacquer. If that's not enough compartments for you, the Mondrian Sideboard then gets encased in a clear glass box "supported by a high gloss white lacquer solid wood base" (if it's white). The sideboard also comes in black. Either recalls Mondrian's grid-based and lozenge paintings, with their emphasis on black and white geometric spaces. Furthering the comparison are the Mondrian Sideboard's drawers, some of which are lined with fabric in primary colors. The furniture measures 73" W x 32" H x 21" D, a great size for a dining room sideboard or a large entryway console or a bedroom dresser; it can also work as storage for collectors. Wherever you put this Boca Do Lobo piece, it should elevate the room's decor: "When art becomes a sideboard, your room acquires an evermore inspiring atmosphere."
