We‘re all familiar with rattan, although sometimes we think it‘s one and the same as wicker. But the material we now associate with cozy furniture is actually full of surprises. The term rattan, for instance, defines more than 600 species of climbing palms and a lot of them are in fact more similar to lianas than to actual wood. Rattan has slender stems and doesn‘t grow like a tree but more like a vine, also being a bit similar to bamboo from certain points of view.
It‘s shaped like a jewel and it has a name that reflects that. The Diamond sideboard has a sculptural design, with two doors that reveal a gold leaf interior fitted with shelves and a drawer. This version has a silver leaf finished exterior mixed with a chocolate brown high gloss varnish. The base, which completes the sculptural form, is made from mahogany and lined with bronze mirror.
There‘s obviously some resemblance between the Heritage Sideboard and ginger jars from China or hand-painted tiles from Portugal. Similar to these, the sideboard from Boca do Lobo features a mesmerizing design with several layers, each telling a different story and together creating a wonderful big picture.
