Style on the Side

Whether you call them sideboards or buffets, these functional and stylish pieces are worth becoming the center of your attention.


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.
