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.
The term has evolved to define anything made specifically from the rattan plant. The material is preferred by the wicker manufacturers because of its increased strength and durability compared to reeds and other fibers. Wicker, on the other hand, is the product resulted from weaving rattan, cane, willow, raffia and other natural materials. These are first cut into strips, dried and often soaked in water to become more flexible, after which they’re woven into wicker.
We’ve seen our share of buffets and sideboards as well as sideboard cabinets and most of them are pretty mainstream with designs that serve the functions they’re meant to but other than that don’t exactly impress.

Chen Chen & Kai Williams designed something called The Third Eye Vessel. It’s a magazine rack which has a rather unusual form. Its body is made up of three panels that form a sort of open box that lets you place your books along its sides so they can be automatically aligned. It’s a simple and clever system and the marble really makes the piece pop.
