Sideboard. Thursday , November 02nd , 2017 - 14:44:14 PM
The design of eighteenth and nineteenth century houses usually did not include much space for storage. Because of that furniture makers were called upon to solve the problem of where to keep things when they were not being used everyday. The dining room generally had one of those solutions in the form of the oak sideboard. The sideboard of most northeastern homes was made of oak due to its plenteous supply throughout the woodlands from Maine to Pennsylvania.
In addition to making the dining room look less empty, sideboards create an inviting atmosphere which in turn makes everyone at the table feel more relaxed. They are not, however, just an aesthetically appealing addition but very practical too. Sideboards are typically used to keep the tableware at hand which helps save space in kitchen cabinets as well as the kitchen itself, enabling the "chef" to focus exclusively on cooking. In addition, a sideboard in the dining area reduces the risk of burnt food and other cooking accidents because the "chef" is not disturbed by a family member who is in charge for setting the table.
Black ash was the next fad for wooden furniture, swiftly followed by pale ash as a certain Swedish flat pack furniture store started trading in the UK. The 1990s saw us buying beech in our droves. Nowadays, we have returned to oak as the staple for elegant furniture but these days it is often sold in a more natural paler tint. The legacy of years of influence of the Scandinavian designers has left us with many simple lines in current classics like a contemporary oak sideboard.
