sideboard

Update: here is a similar sideboard on german ebay at the moment. If you need help, don't hesitate to email me: link to ebay

Actually I like sideboards much more than cupboards - in real life too. The reason is that I can put some decoration or a dollshouse-roombox or such things on it easily. So I am allways watching the sideboards on ebay and if I can get one for small price I am happy. Unfortunately there is often some other stuff that come with a nice sideboard, so that I have a lot of cupboards or furniture I do not like. This dark red sofa and chairs in the 70s-style was not my taste, but after taking a few pictures I am not sure - perhaps I can keep them and have a good use for them.



this was the eby-auction.

  1. I prefer sideboards to cupboards myself, but am always looking for nice bookshelves. I think they are very hard to find in my scale. Your cupboard is absolutely gorgeous! Which scale is it in?

  2. You know I'd LOVE these pieces, right?! Great finds, and they look fantastic. I myself do not mind the 70s couches... :)

  3. It is 1:12, the bigger one. the sofa and armchairs are a too small for it. I would give an arm for having such a sideboard in lundby-size, but I have never seen such detailed in 1:18 or 1:16.
    I think, bookshelves are not so hard to make with light wood. I have a few from my early times, they look not so bad when filled with a lot of books ;-)

  5. The sideboard is fantastic and so is the cupboard. I haven't seen 60s (?) matching furniture like this for a long time. I can't believe not that long ago, my own real life home has furniture like this. That dining table is selling for a hefty price life size. These are great buys. I like all the furniture too.

  6. Very nice set-up! The sideboard looks a lot like something I just saw in Jonathan Adler's online catalog. Wonderful!

  8. I really like that sideboard on the top photo. Is it plastic or is it made of wood? I would like to make a wood reproduction of that in 1:12

  9. It is plastic, the typical german dollhouse style of my childhood (in the sixties). I would love to see a reproduction in wood. If you want more fotos, let me know, I will send them to you or post them for you.
