A Glorious Past

Also known as a “buffet”, the sideboard’s most common location is the dining room.  While this is a practical choice, the living room is often the site of gatherings which require space to arrange canapes and cocktails in an elegant display which appeals to the eye and offers entertaining convenience.

Originating in the 18th Century, the sideboard established itself in 19th Century Europe, as continental householders’ fortunes increased during the Industrial Revolution.  In Italy, where all beautiful things are revered, the sideboard is known as the “credenza”.

Today’s wooden sideboard has its origins in the homes of those prospering in the crucible of monumental change, displaying their wealth in intricate wood inlay and costly veneers.

A luxury wooden sideboard for a classic living room can take numerous forms, drawing on the styles and traditions of the time frame in which this item of furniture rose to popularity.  But you may choose to express your personal vision with an ornate, Baroque version, or an Art Deco interpretation.
