Sideboards, buffets and servers aren't new entries into the furniture arena. These furnishings date back to the 16th century −− when dining tables were often called "boards" −− because they comprised long wooden boards resting atop bases. Before a meal was served, the board was placed atop the bases.
Sideboards, also called buffets, are flat-topped pieces of furniture with cabinets, shelves or cupboards. Typically placed along walls in dining rooms, they can be used to set food for serving buffet style, and for storing linens, china and other serving supplies.
Buffet tables are commonly used in the dining room. Like buffets, sideboards may have doors and cabinets, but some have open shelves and short legs to make it look more like a narrow table. Over time sideboards are now mainly used to store keepsakes or fine china in dining areas, living rooms or kitchen areas.
