A mahogany sideboard is the ideal solution for your cluttered living room or dining room. Just imagine all those muddles tidied away and out of sight.
What is a sideboard?
A sideboard is a cabinet typically used in a dining or living room which provides extra storage. It usually has cabinets with drawers above. The cabinets are perfect for storing your fine china, serving dishes or glasses. The drawers are ideal for storing cutlery, napkins or tablecloths. The top surface of a sideboard is the perfect place to display your favourite decorative items such as lamps, vases or photographs. A sideboard would also provide you with an extra surface area when you are entertaining.
History of the sideboard
“The earliest versions of the sideboard familiar today made their appearance in the 18th century, but they gained most of their popularity during the 19th century, as households became prosperous enough to dedicate a room solely to dining. Sideboards were made in a range of decorative styles and were frequently ornamented with costly veneers and inlays. In later years, sideboards have been placed in living rooms or other areas where household items might be displayed.
In traditional formal dining rooms today, an antique sideboard is a desirable and fashionable accessory, and finely styled versions from the late 18th or early 19th centuries are the most sought-after and most costly. Among its counterparts in modern furniture styles, the form is often referred to as a server. Some of the earliest production of sideboards arose in England, France, Poland, Belgium and Scotland. Later, American designs arose. Characteristic materials used in historic sideboard manufacture include mahogany, oak, pine, and walnut.”Wikipedia
