A Younger late 60s teak short Sequence sideboard in good vintage condition .
This is the shorter of the 2 Sequence models that were introduced in 1968 to replace a number of other models . This was done to reduce costs by rationalising their range at a time when wealthier British customers had less to spend due to higher taxes . Rather than reduce quality , A Younger decided it was better to concentrate on one model rather than the previous 6 to 8 different ones . Also they felt it was time to produce a shorter version . As with G Plan and McIntosh there was a demand for smaller models , even if it was a lot less than for the longer version . As a result this size is much rarer , and probably for every 5 or 6 long ones , you’ll find one of this size .
A Younger furniture was always more expensive than pieces by G Plan and McIntosh . Their chief designer from the mid 1950s was the talented John Herbert , and they were one of the first British mainstream makers to use afromosia and teak in the 1950s . He was joined by a little known designer called Alan Pledge who assisted him in coming up with the Sequence range .
