Sideboard with integral drawers
Design-Richard Young
Manufacturer-Merrow Associates


Merrow Associates was started by Richard Young, who was a former Royal College of Art student; he later studied at the Royal Art Academy Copenhagen under Professor Old Wanscher. Richard was obsessed by quality and the kind of meticulous detailing typical of Scandinavian furniture of the 1950s. He uses beautifully finished glossy surfaces - a juxtaposition of wood, steel and also glass - as substitutes for patina and marquetry.


Distribution of Merrow Associates furniture was restricted to specialist retailers, Heals and Harrods. Although the firm’s idiom is essentially traditional modern classic, Merrow Associates has proved that British workmanship properly directed, matches Scandinavian.


A rare and highly collectable teak and chromed sideboard by Merrow Associates dating from the early seventies. This sideboard has all the attention to detail that you would expect from Merrow Associates. It is beautifully constructed featuring interior glass shelving and five exquisitely made drawers lined in maple. This sideboard is in showroom condition having benefited from being re-polished.
