The Edit: Sideboards

Blending form and function the Sideboard, also called a buffet, dresser or credenza, made its first appearance in the 18th century. Traditionally used in the dining room for serving food, displaying serving dishes and storage, their modern reincarnations can now be found throughout the house, adding visual interest and valuable storage space to any room.

Typically rectangular and waist height, sideboards now come in all shapes and sizes but usually have shorter legs or a base that sits directly on the floor. Originally designed for storing cutlery, china and linens, they historically featured a combination of drawers and cupboards behind doors.

Whilst traditional sideboards favoured more ornate designs, with carved wood panels, inlays and decorative hardware their modern counterparts have embraced a more minimalist approach to design, combining simple lines, natural materials and contemporary finishes for a cleaner more understated look.
