Ask us for an adjective to describe our tambour credenza, and we’d probably go for “groovy”. The first reason is obvious: this is a really cool and good-looking piece of furniture. It’s so attractive, in fact, that many people place it in their living area of a home, where you might find it being called a sideboard.

In an office, though - especially paired with other items from the range - it shines as an elevated version of the ugly cupboard where you might find supplies such as pens, notebooks and copy paper. The white oak from which it’s made gives it an automatic head start over the laminate-covered competition, then there’s the symmetry of the base and the two tops, with our signature legs connecting them.

But it’s the doors that take the credenza to another level - and which make it “groovy” in the physical sense. More accurately, the two doors are flexible shutter made of oak strips. They slide in grooves and disappear into the back of the cupboard.

The idea dates from the mid-19th century, tambour doors were widely used in mid-20th century furniture. They’ve stood the test of time, which is why we think they’re the perfect solution for a piece of furniture that will last you a lifetime.

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:

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.
