Gabin High Sideboard
Hartô creative director Mathieu Galard extends his creative storage collection with a caning-inspired front in this higher-than-usual sideboard. Gabin’s attractive clean lines recall midcentury style while its combination of drawers and artfully concealed shelving offers a wealth of storage. With steel legs and perforated sliding doors in a lacquered finish, the cabinet is fashioned in natural solid oak and oak veneer, accentuated with drawer handles in brushed brass.

Rising French design brand Hartô was founded by Amandine Merle and Alexander Mulliez with only 10 introductory pieces. Today Hartô offers a full range of contemporary furniture, lighting and textiles. Working with about a dozen young designers, the collection displays an unrestrained, inventive and versatile attitude with its offerings. “We wanted to bring something new, with strong colors, in a feel-good spirit,” says Amandine. “Something fun and different in terms of style.”
Ironically, the name comes from a Spanish phrase “estoy harto” which means to have enough, indicating the company’s desire to move outside of what is usually seen in furnishings and decorative objects. “We chose this small word to translate our feeling, and put a circumflex over the ‘o’, to give our own little graphic touch,” Amandine explains. ”At Hartô, we love furniture and objects that are practical. We believe that interiors should adapt seamlessly to our lifestyle, every day."
