Sideboards are used in living rooms - usually a dining room if the home has a separate one. They can be used as a serving table and contain plates, glasses and napkins for the meal. Drawers are sometimes lined with felt to contain fine cutlery for dinner parties. Some sideboards have drop-down doors - rather like the 1950s cocktail cabinets - to act as a work surface for serving food and as a small bar for drinks. The top of the sideboard is an extra work surface when dining and can hold serving dishes, plates and bottles of wines and liqueurs.
