    Siematic has returned to its roots with its new 29 sideboard.

Available in Siematic’s full ColourSystem of 1,950 shades, plus a variety of wood finishes, the Siematic29 can be designed to be a workstation, incorporating key appliances, or used to show off a collection of statement tableware. Kitchens from £30,000.
