Sideboards. Monday , February 12th , 2018 - 15:09:15 PM
When looking for the perfect piece to finish off your dining area, a piece of sideboard furniture is usually a great idea. In a small room like most dining areas, you need a piece that will be able to look great at the same time as it is serving other functions like storage or food service. Sideboards handle all of those tasks and definitely look good in the process. In some homes you will find an antique sideboard that has been passed down through many generations of the family. These family treasures are some of the most beautiful pieces of furniture you might ever see in your lifetime, and they still look as good and fill the same functional role as they did perhaps hundreds of years ago when they were first made.
Solid oak is still treasured by woodworkers and furniture buyers alike. Throughout the ages, it has been valued for its strength and beauty, which is why servers made of oak are still popular today. In contrast to oak veneer, solid oak will tend to have a more substantial feel to it if a lighter wood has been used with the veneer. Some of the more exotic or flamboyant looking grains may be more readily available in veneers, however, as they are hard to get and veneering allows a relatively small amount of wood to be usable for visual effects.
The Hepplewhite sideboard would have been used to store silver ware, dinnerware and other dining accoutrements. Modern Sideboards can be used in exactly the same way as the grand Hepplewhite and Chippendale (he also got in on the act) pieces. In the years from 1770, no dining room would have been considered complete without Sideboards. We may not have the grand dining style of the Hepplewhite and Chippendale era, but there is absolutely no reason why we shouldnt have one in modern homes today. We have all seen some period dramas where a group of people are sitting in a grand dining room at a heavily laden table being served food from the sideboard. Whilst we may not have the servants or the grand dining rooms of yesteryears, we do still dine and need storage space for our cutlery and china.
