The Hirado sideboard, like Mainzer’s complementary Imari chest of drawers, is an elegant multipurpose storage credenza that will also beautifully complement e15’s popular Noah and Mo beds. Like many of Mainzer’s designs, the Hirado sideboard is a celebration of the aesthetics of solid wood engendered by the precise and thoughtful arrangement of the material’s natural grain and striations.
The Hirado sideboard features a composition in 1.4” thick solid wood. Each of the four-door panels has been cleverly fabricated with an integrated end-to-end horizontal indented slot that functions as a handle. Each set of two doors opens in their respective centers to reveal a large storage area within that has been subdivided with a horizontal shelf. Each front door panel has been fitted with special hardware that allows for gentle automatic closure; the base is fitted with discreet underside adjustable feet that were designed for easy leveling.
The Hirado sideboard is available in two widths – each version is available in a choice of northern European oiled oak or signal white stained lacquer.
