Sideboard/credenza/buffet table, whatever you prefer to call this item of furniture in the house, its importance in the family home never waivers.
The not so humble sideboard , orginated around the 18th Century and became a more commom household item during the 19th century when households became more propserous , and the accumulation of material items grew.
The sideboard or buffet table, apart from looking wonderful should be an extension of the room that it is in.
It should be a part of the room’s personality and decor.
There are so many options when it comes to the sideboard; glass door, glass shelved, open storage, backlighting anyone ? the options are endless but at the end of the day the sideboard should be able to store all the wonderful precious items we use for food ocassions.
The perfect platter, the fantastic china picked up in a garage sale, the tablecloth that has been in the family for generations; they should all be stored safely and have the ability to keep these precious items in pristine condition.
Over the years, we have made variants of the sideboard, each with the owners tastes and preferences in mind.
They are always a wonderful addition to the home.
