1950's Double Helix sideboard by Gordon Russell

Designed for the festival of Britain in 1953 this sideboard is produced in teak and mahogany with makers label to back. This beautiful piece was designed by David Booth and Judith Ledeboer in 1950 for Gordon Russell. Named after the recently discovered Double Helix strand structure of DNA. V&A hold an example in their permanent collection.

So its safe to say its a bit of a design classic! The quality is superb and overall the condition is very good with only minor marks consistent with age but it shows its age handsomely. The brass door pulls are totally original and it also retains the original interior drawer. It is a mid century piece but it works really well with both traditional and contemporary interiors.

My name is Matt Dixon and for as long as I can remember I have had a love for history and design which I find relate very closely.

Since starting up TallBoy Interiors 3 years ago, I have learnt so much about what works together and I find that you can mix modern and classic pieces to create a truly unique design.

I am not afraid to express myself through the items I buy as I believe your home should represent as much about you as the way you dress.  Everyone has their own style and that is what makes this business so interesting.

As trends change, the pieces that appear on the open market change, and that keeps me thinking of how it can work in a design.

I want to provide a service that is totally personal to the client and help them use their imagination to create something unique.
