Scarce Mogens Kold teak short Model 511 sideboard by Arne Hovmand Olsen

These fabulous minimalist sideboards don’t turn up very often , and now we’ve got both the long and the short one as well as the matching chest of drawers . Amazingly we’ve sourced them all from different parts of the country ! We couldn’t find any of these models currently for sale , so to have all 3 at once is a great opportunity if someone would like a set . They will differ slightly in  colour however .

The long version is definitely Model 511 , but we don’t know if this smaller 160cm one has a different number or not . Like it’s full length brother it doesn’t have its MK makers label , but the cut out is there to take one . A number of independent shops didn’t like to sell labelled pieces , so this isn’t unusual . The chest of drawers we have is labelled , but is well hidden from view .

It had a few small marks on it when we sourced it and it was a little faded after some 50 years , but a light clean and oil soon had it looking great again . There are now no obvious marks or scratches , just the very minor signs of wear that you are always going to find if you look at it extremely closely , as even  carefully kept quality pieces will have something if you look hard enough !

Designed in 1964 by Arne Hovmand Olsen this is early minimalism at it’s best by a good quality Danish maker . The drawers just disappear and along with the cupboards show off the grain of the teak to great effect .

Its 160cms long 45cms deep and only 71cms high .
