Consoles | Sideboards

Sideboards, also known as buffets, were often made up of wood and glass, and are commonly used in dining rooms and prep rooms for serving food. Originating from Western Europe, sideboards consist of drawers and cabinets for storing dishes and other dining accessories. Current designs have often put storage and aesthetic ahead of the food serving/prepping purpose of sideboards.

How do you decorate a sideboard?

A sideboard can not only be used as a surface to serve food, but act as a blank space to display seasonal decorations or highlight curated art pieces. A collection of books, a bouquet of flowers, a pair of lamps, or a simple bowl of fruit are a few more ideas of items that can be placed on top of a sideboard to elevate a space in accordance with the homeowner’s aesthetic.
