Sideboard. Thursday , October 19th , 2017 - 12:56:39 PM
Sideboards were very popular after the Second World War and a good, solid oak sideboard in a medium stain was de rigueur in many households. In the 1970s, teak ruled supreme, together with a fashion for long, low sideboards with three simple compartments. This was followed by the desire for unstained pine in everything, until folk got tired of the propensity of pale pine wood to turn rather orange on contact with sunlight after a sustained period of time. This is easily solved by buying pine with an "antique" stain already on it to cool it down.
Sideboards are not only beautiful, but they are extremely functional as well. Sideboards are great for storing just about anything. The other great thing about a sideboard is its versatility. A sideboard can literally be placed in every room in the house, even the bathroom. They are also great piece to place in the hallway. Antique sideboard furniture can be as simple as a small table, or as intricate as a painted masterpiece. This makes the sideboard easy to place in your home. Whether you are displaying a statue or simply holding family picture frames in the hallway, the sideboard gives the area it is placed in a special glow.
