The sideboard dates back to the Middle Ages, when this rustic rectangular-shaped piece of furniture was traditionally used in country houses to store flour and yeast, while its worktop was used for kneading bread. Fast forward to today, and the modern sideboard has become a decorative and functional item that can adapt to any context – including dining and living areas, as well as hallways and kitchens. It always brings a touch of elegance, combined with practicality. The wooden structure of Opera Contemporary’s sideboards can be enriched with a variety of materials and styles, to bring out the unique personality of the furnishings.
The New Doris sideboard is the ideal solution if one is seeking a piece of furniture of great impact, which can also highlight design or art works. Its compartments can contain tableware as well as books, memorabilia, and much more. The sideboard’s sinuous profiles are counterbalanced by the slender metal legs and the mix of different materials that frame each piece.
In the same style and bearing the same name, Castello Lagravinese has conceived another essential furnishing element of today’s living space: the TV stand. Its lower legs and sculptural asymmetric form give the space a defined character. Metal, wood and marble provide sophisticated counterpoints that embody Opera Contemporary’s up-to-date ethos and its artisan flair.
The perfect cut of the diamond has become a hallmark of the Opera Contemporary collection. With its striking pattern carved into solid wood, the three-drawer Victor sideboard offers a refined home storage solution that combines form and function.
The recent restyling of the sideboard features the introduction of Canaletto walnut, a precious wood with fairly regular veining; this is beautifully combined with vibrant marbles and metal, to add vitality to the New Victor sideboard. A striking pattern of uniform grooves is carved on its slender doors, making it a sculptural centrepiece that emphasises the quality of the wood.
Opera Contemporary’s vocation for cabinet making is paired with a new stylistic language. This has created a collection of highly versatile, prestigious sculptural objects, which elevate every room they occupy with undeniable elegance and sartorial allure.
