Every home needs ample practical storage solutions – especially if you want to be in with a chance of keeping your living space neat and tidy. But practical doesn’t have to mean boring. Take this Kendal sideboard: the classic country design allows it to shine in either a traditional or contemporary setting. A substantial piece, it incorporates shelved storage space below a pair of drawers. The combination of grooved panelling with deep base plinth and oak-effect top roots it in the cottage aesthetic, the slate blue or cool grey finish applying a contemporary twist.
