eBay watch: Merrow Associates sideboard in need of restoration
If you're quite handy or just don't mind a bit of hard work, this Merrow Associates sideboard could prove a real steal.
It's a classic Richard Yound design from around 1970, a timeless mix of chrome and rosewood with a craftsman finish you'll rarely find on modern pieces. But this one is showing its age a little and needs some restoration. Specifically, re-chroming, some holes and a good polish of that rosewood.
It might sound like hard work, but these things regularly sell for £1,000+, so the £41 (current price) does leave you some cash to play with if you want to bring in the experts. If you want an idea of how it could look, check out the listing for one the seller previously upgraded.
