Inspired from the days spent by designer Pedro Sousa in Dublin, this elegant cabinet was entitled “Causeway“, after the unusual rock formations in County Antrim. The idea for a sideboard hit Pedro a while back, but it was only recently that it materialized. The design is defined by various three-dimensional patters, with a strong visual effect.
The designer officially describes the piece as a body in plywood with a solid wood structure, coated all around with a three-dimensional pattern of wood veneer. The first series is available in three different colors: green, blue, red and finally natural wood, where two pieces are prototypes, two artist proofs in a series of eight pieces for each, all numbered and authenticated by designer. It is easy for the beholder to get lost in the intricate game of perspectives exhibited by the sideboard, especially if this game is a reminder of an exceptional place such as the Giant Causeway.
Affable and loyal, Vitsœ has a long-term commitment to enabling more people to live better, with less, that lasts longer. It is a modest way of thinking that values the consumer as an individual.

With its clean industrial aesthetic, flexibility and versatility, the 606 is a lifetime companion. The Royal System, designed by Poul Cadovius in 1948, is handsome, simple and practical. Much admired in the 1950s and 60s, dk3 acquired the rights to revive and reintroduce this Danish classic, doing so in 2010. The Royal System®, one of the first wall-hung furniture systems, is available in materials such as walnut, oak and compact laminate with steel.
An antique armoire can bring a sense of timeless elegance to any home, but not everyone can find a proper use for one — not to mention sufficient space too! In the old days they were used to store clothing and linens back when bedrooms didn’t have closets, and today some people use them to hold their televisions — but that trend perhaps isn’t as big of a deal as it once was now that TV screens are so flat and compact. You just need to have a look around at all your stuff and see what needs a storage area of its own! Here are some great ideas that might pique your interest.
