Freestanding sideboard in rosewood by Danish designer Bodil Kjaer. Absolute stunning credenza. This cabinet shows an interesting rhythm of horizontal and vertical lines.

The back has a similar composition of compartments, yet without the horizontal lines. The chrome legs are a nice modern addition and follow the linear rhythm of the credenza.
