the printmaker's sideboard

While I haven't really been a fan of weathered wood furniture most often seen via Restoration Hardware, I'm really liking the Printmaker's Sideboard seen in the October/November issue of Lonny Magazine and the November issue of Canadian House & Home. Here it is...

Cameron McNeil did a great job bringing this piece into a living room redesign without going over the edge with too much farmhouse modern. I really like this room... seems grown up enough for guests while friendly enough for little ones. Since I'm collecting inspiration for my own living room redesign (wanting it to be shared by adults & kids alike), elements of this room keep popping into my head.

 
the sideboard provides ample extra storage for linens, candles and other pretty things
the pair of velvet chairs in front of the window seem like comfy chairs for reading the latest issue of your favorite design magazine, with a cup of cofffe in hand!
the modern area rug adds a nice graphic touch but in a subtle way
the iron with marble top side tables pair nicely with the wood coffee table and sideboard
the clear glass lamps are also a 'fabulous find', check out Walmart instead of Crate & Barrel!

Check out this living room transformation via Canadian House & Home online TV, and why not check out Cameron's blog too!

I love this room too and you're right - the sideboard works so well here. I have a design crush on Cameron - saw him last week at an event and wanted to hang out with him!

I feel like we are on the same wave length Wendy! I loved that room that Cameron did! And I have decided recently that I really want a printmakers sideboard. I did find a couple of unique ones on Craigslist, but they are still pretty pricy!

*gasp* I love that printmaker's side board! It brings back really great memories of a print studio class I took in university. I love that this side board is so rustic looking. A beautiful addition to the transitional style of the furnishings.

I love the look, finish, and overall style of the sideboard. Only thing I don't love is what the heck do you store in it besides flat linens? However, it really is pretty!

The sideboard provides various extra spaces for put on it. It is an item of furniture, which used in the dining room for various things like serving food. A well-designed sideboard definitely can increase the beauty of dining room.
