CORTEZ | Sideboard
Wooden sideboard with doors
Heritage Collection is the essence of a country, a portrait of a world of cultural elements uniquely confined to the root of a person. It is that legacy that gives us, today, symbols that we’re proud to claim as fruits of our ingenuity, as well as symbols which were adopted and taken as our own, from paths crossed momentarily in the past. Heritage, a collection that catalogues what is essentially the birth of a nation, is completed with pieces that reflect important landmarks, in days of yore.
With Heritage, Malabar moves into a classic, more ornate design philosophy in order to stay true to the inspirations, setting itself worlds apart from the first collection, World Architects.
Cornices, friezes, carving, tiles, gold and silver leaf, wrought iron, ceramics and other time-honored elements and styles will be some of its characteristic components. To create these pieces, we need more than skill from our artisans and designers: a monumental amount of passion for art and attention to detail are necessary to complete a worthy tribute piece.
After surviving Lisbon’s 1755 earthquake, the royal family decided to live in a much solider residence than before. It was then that the Palace of Ajuda was built and, from there on, several families inhabited it. The building also underwent some changes through the years, having even been partially destroyed by a fire in the meantime. Inspired by such strong building, with such strong roots, Malabar created the Cortez Sideboard. Structured in lacquered wood and finished with high gloss varnish, embellished with gold leaf coated details, this piece suits every room with a royalist flair. Remembering the kings and queens’ era, the Cortez Sideboard will be the strongest piece in your room.
