The dining table would only hold the plates, cups, and other eating utensils along with the centerpiece only. At the end of the meal the sideboard would be the staging area for any desserts and cordials. Once the dishes were washed and dried, the oak sideboard would also be the storage place between meals. The structure of the sideboard was generally five to six-feet in length by eighteen inches deep by thirty-eight to forty-one inches tall. The height was configured to the waist height of the hostess, for the top of the sideboard had to coincide with her ability to carry platters of food to and from the furniture piece.

We have all seen some period dramas where a group of people are sitting in a grand dining room at a heavily laden table being served food from the sideboard. Whilst we may not have the servants or the grand dining rooms of yesteryears, we do still dine and need storage space for our cutlery and china. Therefore, Sideboards are pieces of history we can have in our homes today. Versatile and beautiful, they are ideal pieces of furniture for living rooms, dining rooms or indeed kitchens.
