A stunning cubist-style Kiaat headboard with attached pedestals made by Novocraft Furniture. A real period stunner with a drawer on each side and ample space on the top of the pedestals and a second tier for books and magazines. Novocraft was a SA manufacturer of very high-quality wooden furniture in the Mid-Century period and was based in Germiston.
The wood has been restored and sealed and most parts of this headboard are solid Kiaat, except for the drawer fronts so will last for centuries to come. The piece is in great vintage condition with minor imperfections on the one drawer front.

As with most Mid-Century pieces, it is a good combination of solid wood and a high-quality wood veneer. The quality, old veneer was long-lasting and for this reason, it can be retouched or sanded and refinished. The history of veneer on furniture is a long and honorable tradition, and it depends on the workmanship, condition, and thickness of the veneer itself.

Although all effort is made to refurbish our furniture to best represent its original state, it must be noted that the majority of the items we source date between the 1950’s to the late 1970’s. For this reason and although restored, signs of their vintage condition & age might still be visible. We will normally point out any visible/notable concerns.
