This stunning cocktail bar / sideboard, designed by Heal’s of Tottenham Court Road in the 1950's, is a beautiful example of mid-century British craftsmanship and is made from Mahogany, Cherry, and Rosewood.

The original lacquered finish on the outside has been completely stripped, then the exposed wooden surfaces have been carefully sanded to reveal the gorgeous woodgrain. Several applications of a hardwearing, protective Osmo wax-oil have then been applied by hand making the grain pop.

The front of the cabinet has been lined with Graham & Brown Quarters Sepia paper,  a neutral and grounded colour palette, that complements the surrounding wood.

The legs have been painted in a deep gray, almost black mineral paint and varnished for durability.

The cabinet boasts two good-sized side cupboards with a dividing shelf and the middle drop-down section can be used as a cocktail bar.  Above the cupboards are three good-sized drawers. The drawer on the right includes two removable cutlery dividers.


DIMENSIONS:

Width: 145cm

Height: 77cm

Measurements are rounded up to the nearest centimeter so you can be confident that it will fit into your intended space. If you require additional measurements, please ask and I will be happy to provide these for you.

PRE-LOVED FURNITURE

This is a vintage piece of furniture that has been restored skilfully, with high attention to detail, however, it may show signs of a previous life. This in no way hinders the functionality of the piece and only adds to its character.  

Freshly painted furniture can take up to 28 days to harden. We advise you during this period to take extra care. The paint used on this piece is waterproof, however, it is still recommended to use coasters and dusting should only be done with a slightly damp lint-free cloth.  Any chemicals should be avoided.

DELIVERY

Delivery is a standard fee of £65 to the Mainland UK with a trusted courier. However, a small supplement may apply if you live further afield, i.e. Highlands, Cornwall, Isle of Man, etc. Please contact me for a quote if you are unsure.

Alternatively, you are welcome to come and collect for free from my workshop in Fleet, Hampshire.

** Please note that delivery will be made by a 1 man courier company to the ground floor. This means that for heavy items help lifting and carrying will be required on delivery. If you are unable to provide help on delivery or if the item needs carrying upstairs, please contact me before buying as delivery charges may need to be recalculated.

"They are beautiful. I don’t like to match furniture and love mish mash, quirky and odd looking things lol. I absolutely love them. My house is 203 years old and is grade II listed. I think it makes an old cottage come alive and puts a modern twist on it. I love furniture that tells a story or gets people talking at a house party".

Beautiful Bedside Tables

The bedside tables are stunning! The seller was so nice and communicated extremely well, even though she was on holiday at the time I purchased! I said she didn't have to worry until she returned to the UK, but she still started to communicate with couriers to arrange pick-up of the items before her return, which I thought was lovely of her.

I'm extremely impressed with how quickly the seller arranged delivery and accommodated for dates I would be at home for the deilvery. The furniture is also stunning and arrived with no damages and well packaged. Extremely happy with the furniture bought and the seller. A small paintbrush and touch up paint was also included, which I thought was a nice touch.

Thank you so much! I love them.

Kraken Drawers

My new table arrived from PinkDotUpcycling at Upcite and omg I'm in love! I so miss being able to do this kind of thing myself, but cannot fault the work done to bring this table back to life and just look how stunning my kraken's bride is!! . Off to follow the FB groups now to see what other unique pretties I can find! Technically a lamp table, but us three being shorties means it will work just fine for crafting, science experiments etc. . . Only opened up to protect the artwork and a table cloth!.
