Virka High Sideboard
Let it slide. Woud's spare Virka Sideboard is fitted with sliding doors for a timelessly modernist look. Poised on a slim metal framework, it seems to float over the floor beneath. The high sideboard has a single adjustable shelf on each side, with back openings to route media cables. Oak veneer in natural soap-treated finish or black painted finish with contrasting doors. Detachable leg frame in black powder coat. Danish designers Rasmus Røpke and Mark Wedel say, "Clean lines and functionality have always been two drawing factors for us."

“We wanted a challenge,” say husband and wife Mia and Torben Koed, founders of Copenhagen-based Woud, and they got one. Sitting around the dinner table a couple of years ago, they realized it was time to leverage their experience in private-label furniture and create something of their own. In just a few short years, they’ve masterminded one of the most influential Danish brands around.
Now adding accessories to the mix of furniture and lighting, Woud expands on the essential simplicity of Nordic design with an emphasis on finely crafted function and startlingly original form. Embracing upcoming design talents, both from Denmark and abroad, the couple is also keen on finding new materials that fit the Scandinavian tradition. Ultimately, they say, “We believe timeless design can express personalities, inspire people and create beautiful homes.”
