The Advent of the Sideboard –

When it comes to storage, the sideboard has always been a saviour to the proverbial cluttered householder. concealing a multitude of sins and creating an elegant solution to the overstocked interior.

In my case I found it more useful as a “hider of the hideous” wii/xbox/ playstation accessories, copious stacks of board games and general toot acquired by our zoo (4 children) than that of Auntie Joyce’s best Sunday china past down lovingly by the great and good.

This allowed me the benefit of a space that I could truly enjoy. Enhancing anything ‘artistically’ placed upon it. I have to admit that the ‘sideboard’ is a bit of a weak spot of mine. I have always loved their individuality and the beauty of the craftsmanship.

We at thefurniturerooms stock a grand number of these wonderful pieces in a myriad of woods and finishes, dating from the Deco to the contemporary. Personal favourites being the ‘stunning’ 1930’s walnut/satinwood Bowman Brothers and the 1974 Gordon Russell in rosewood. However don’t take my word for it…………….come and have a gander for yourself!
