or Call to Order

The Shahnaz wall-mounted side­board by e15 boasts an elegant, stream­lined design that creates the illu­sion of float­ing effort­lessly on the wall, despite its solid wood construc­tion. This visual light­ness is achieved through metic­u­lous crafts­man­ship and the absence of visible frames.

Shahnaz can be seam­lessly combined with the Mahnaz chest of drawers, featur­ing a cham­fered edge on the drawers that also serves as a discreet handle. Both the Shahnaz side­board and Mahnaz chest are crafted from 3/4″ thick Euro­pean oak or walnut, with various finish options to choose from.

For a more person­al­ized storage system, you can inte­grate the Araq bar cabinet, which features two hatches and doubles as a work surface when opened. Addi­tion­ally, the Dara open shelf unit, constructed from powder-coated aluminum, provides a dynamic visual contrast to the solid wood chest and is avail­able in colors like signal white, umbra grey, and jet black. This combi­na­tion allows you to tailor your storage to your specific needs and preferences.
