Storage is the largest battle for any interior as it's perfectly natural not to want every possession on display, but so many storage options will compromise on the aesthetic of our spaces.

For a simple yet effective approach, the Chelsea Sideboard is a stunning contemporary design featuring an eight-sided lacquered wood frame with a complimentary glass top and internal transparent clear glass shelves, all available in a choice of finishes.
