Remarkable, rare, Rosewood, stunning two-piece Petite hutch credenza by Famous designer Svend Larsen for Faarup Mobelfabrik, made in Denmark. This Danish Modern Rosewood credenza / Media China Cabinet is beautifully embellished with bands of Rosewood running perpendicular to the main surface. Precisely crafted in exceptional wood grain, with a fully finished back and interior. The finished back side makes this credenza ideal for placement in an open floor plan, making it a great focal point. The Hutch top is removable and lifts off the lower cabinet. Upper portion features convenient sliding glass doors with two interior adjustable shelves. Lower portion of the unit features sliding tambour doors with carved handles open to reveal two long adjustable shelves on one side, four felt lined drawers on the other side. Doors disappear from sight when opened sliding seamlessly into the frame. This credenza sits atop four original solid legs giving it the very sought after “floating” look. Manufacturer label (Faarup Mobelfabrik made in Denmark) is on the back. The wood grain is naturally highlighted in a Rosewood pattern throughout, with a rich tone on front, back and interior. Attractive classic modernist quality and design piece for the modern home. An exceedingly well-crafted fine petite credenza, this piece has been very well taken care of over the years, one that will certainly make a powerful impression on a clean and modern interior décor.
