Style on the Side
Buffets serving up utility and beauty

While the designation of this piece of furniture is debatable – I say “sideboard,” you say “buffet” – there is one thing that is not up for debate: the functionality.
Whether you’re talking about a piece that has a full base or one with legs, with shelving or with cabinets, all are undoubtedly useful, as well as stylish. No matter what you’re looking for, whether something primarily to showcase a set of lamps or vases with a great piece of art, or a piece that truly can hold all the table’s contents when necessary, the sideboard is your ticket to success. No matter what you call it.
