Danish Rosewood Sideboard Credenza by Omann Jun, circa 1960

An attractive midcentury rosewood sideboard by Danish cabinet maker Omann Jun. The upper section with oak and baize lined slide trays to the left, adjustable shelves to left and centre. The lower section holding three central drawers with beautiful inset handles flanked by more cupboards. The maker has used very attractive timbers in the construction and it would grace any interior. A good looking and extremely functional piece of Danish design. Danish furniture manufacturing company Omann Jun Møbelfabrik A/S was founded by Andreas Omann in 1933. The family-run business initially focused on the production of bedroom furniture but later, in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, expanded into dining room furniture, desks, sideboards, and shelving systems made in high-quality woods, such as teak, oak, and rosewood, which were exported worldwide. Members of the Omann family developed the designs in house. Among collectors, the beautifully constructed wood sideboards remain Omann Jun’s most sought after productions. These pieces feature many hallmarks of Scandinavian Modernist design, like beautifully grained surfaces, tapered legs, sliding doors, and bevelled edges. Dimensions: H 123 cm x W 200 cm x D 50 cm
