The Houtlander Server has a slender aesthetic but will be a center piece in any home, with a strong focus on craftsmanship this piece has a majestic presence. The suspended drawers are put together with dovetail joints while the reinforced top shows off the signature Houtlander wedged through tenon joint.

Oak. 90cm high, 200cm wide and 45cm in deep.

There are so many words we could use to describe this versatile piece of furniture: server, buffet and credenza are among them, but we’ve settled on sideboard. The name matters to some extent, but if you’ve been paying attention (!) you’ll know by now that Houtlander is all about a minimal but majestic marriage between form and function.

And whatever who care to call it, our sideboard fits that billing to perfection. It’s a slender piece - twice as high as it is deep and a full two metres long - but the craftsmanship combined with the design will make it a statement centrepiece wherever you decide to place it. When the word ‘sideboard’ first emerged in the Middle Ages, it described a stepped structure used to display valuable eating utensils.

Our version has not moved far from this origin, but you could just as easily imagine it in a kitchen or an entrance hall. It will always honour your choice, thanks to the meticulous craftsmanship in the wedged tenon joints securing the legs to the top and the dovetails used to make the drawers. The only remaining problem is this: do you have objects to display whose beauty matches the sideboard that will bear them?

Oak. 90cm high, 200cm wide and 45cm in deep.

Our Oak:

We only use sustainably harvested American oak to craft our furniture. Timber is an inherently sustainable material - trees are (ideally) an infinitely renewable resource. But many manufacturers rely on monocropped pine, or other woods, due to cost and ease. This practice destroys soil and the surrounding ecosystem. All our oak is grown and harvested in indigenous forests on the east coast of America. Trees are felled only once they’ve reached full maturity. Then they are drawn from the forest in minimally invasive ways that preserve the surrounding vegetation. It’s all about delivering a truly sustainable and stunning product.

Manufacturing Process:

Paragraph: Carpentry and joinery are two of the oldest crafts on earth, and furniture making ordinarily requires a huge amount of skill in order to deliver truly exceptional results. Unfortunately, these traditions are largely dying off, particularly in the global South, making great wooden furniture hard to come by at reasonable prices. At Houtlander we want as many people as possible to have access to beautiful, well-crafted furniture which lasts a lifetime. This is why we’ve combined expert craftsmanship with 5-axis CNC technology, allowing us to create perfect curves, joints and furniture features in an affordable and replicable way.
