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.
Drawers and Cupboards - Apart from being available in a variety of different sizes, Oak Sideboards also come with differing numbers of cupboards and drawers. Many of the medium sideboards are supplied with 2 cupboards and two drawers whilst the larger sideboards often have 3 cupboards and 3 drawers. But there are a great number of choices on the market to match what you are looking for, so if you need more cupboards and less drawers or more drawers and fewer cupboards have a good look around, since there is probably a solid oak sideboard readily available to fulfill your requirements.
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.
