Sideboard

Since the 18th century, sideboards have become a common piece of furniture in many homes across the world, working both as a functional and decorative piece. Sideboards are thought to have originated from Britain, initially being positioned in the dining room as a surface for serving food separate from the table - hence the synonymous name 'buffet'. These pieces of furniture were also used to display the household's silverware and decorative wares. In order to draw attention to the owner's fine possessions, 18th and 19th century sideboards were highly decorated with expensive veneers and inlays, as well as being crafted from woods such as pine, oak and walnut. During the 20th century, sideboards became more accessible and affordable, resulting in them commonly being used as storage. The revivial of Scandinavian furniture design has seen increasing popularity in teak mid-century sideboards by renowned designers such as Johannes Andersen and Hans J. Wegner
