If you browse through contemporary design books and magazines from the 60s and 70s, you'll see the name Gordon Russell as much as the more familiar Merrow Associates. But it's a brand that hasn't really picked up interest in the modern era, despite the quality of the items the company produced. Which means something like this Gordon Russell teak sideboard can be picked up incredibly cheaply.
Dating back to the 1960s, it offers up that teak construction, three storage areas (one large, teo smaller that include drawers) and the company's logo so you know it's the real deal. One scratch on it, but according to the seller, it just fades into the grain.
So if you need some functional, well-made, vintage-style storage, it is worth a look – especially with that current £1.24 price tag. Yes, you read that right.
