The sideboard renaissance, a contemporary serving by next125
"With a history that dates back to the 18th century, the old-fashioned sideboard is experiencing a renaissance in the contemporary home," says Wayne Dance, managing director at InHouse.
"Originally gaining popularity in well-to-do households fortunate enough to have a separate dining room, sideboards became the statement piece for storage, display and serving.
As today's interiors move from open plan toward multi-functional spaces, those old-fashioned ideals are re-emerging with a twist, with the modern sideboard creating a flexible, freestanding and natural bridge between kitchen and living areas.
"Long gone are the days in which overly decorative sideboards languished in formal, traditional dining areas. These modern counterparts are the epitome of contemporary chic - appearing in the latest interiors, from the urban apartment to the eclectic country abode. Retaining the heritage of purpose, today's sideboard feature minimalist lines, satin and gloss finishes, pull out shelving, contemporary metal frames and a multitude of configurations.
"With modern interiors no longer defined by historical period or social status, the new sideboard is set to become the must-have piece of furniture for an increasing number of interior design devotees."
The next125 collection is available from next125's UK and Ireland network of retailers. For details please contact InHouse Inspired Room Design via:
