A teak and metal credenza made by Barraja Palermo, Italy, 1950s

$ 4,809
  • Description
    This sideboard, crafted from painted metal and teak, featuring internal doors and drawers, represents an exemplary piece of Italian craftsmanship under the distinguished marque "Barraja mobili Palermo."

    This three-door highboard exhibits a simplistic yet meticulously proportioned aesthetic. The linear precision, connecting the wooden corpus to the metallic base through a succession of orthogonal angles, is only disrupted by the deliberately asymmetric positioning of the beautifully carved handles.

    The teak doors, adorned with tapered decorations, serve to alleviate the visual weight of the furniture. Internally, the compartments are meticulously subdivided into shelves and drawers of varying dimensions, facilitating the storage of cutlery, tableware, and other dining room essentials.

    Affixed with a metal label denoting its origin, the credenza is attributed to the esteemed Barraja factory in Palermo.

    Historically, Sicily has been a bastion of tradition and culture, hosting the operations of the Barraja brand throughout the latter half of the twentieth century in the realms of furniture and décor. As an arbiter of elegance, the craftsmanship emanating from Palermo has not only influenced but also directed taste, through both direct imports of furnishings from eminent European designers and a vibrant local production, characterized by its alignment with the prevailing international trends of the time.

    This sideboard stands as a testament to such artisanal prowess, meticulously restored and wholly original in its composition.

    In dimensions, it measures 150W x 45D x 106H cm.
