Not simply an attractive piece of dining room furniture, these days the contemporary sideboard has countless uses. Let’s face it, we all have that set of mismatched table linen which, although useful, is definitely not the height of design sophistication. So where does one store those pesky bits-and-bobs? Why, a stylish sideboard, of course!
The sideboard functions as a place for all of those beautiful home accessories you wish to show off and cleverly hides those that you don’t. It’s a place for family photos, bespoke ceramics, souvenirs and can truly tie a room together.
Not only does a contemporary sideboard add valuable display space, it also offers valuable storage space. Sure that 75-piece cutlery set your family bought you is gorgeous but where does one keep such a huge array of dining utensils when not in use? Often our kitchens are packed to the brim with household items and the sideboard provides a stylish space for those miscellaneous goods that have no other home.
Today on Home & Decoration we are taking a look at some stylish contemporary sideboards that provide a gorgeous addition to their domestic dining space. From large and lavish options to small, multi-purpose pieces, there is something for every modern home. Check out the images below and consider a sideboard for your sophisticated space.
With the style of a precious jewel, this Diamond sideboard from Boca do Lobo, colored in chocolate brown, will make a splash in interior design. Like the amethyst Diamond, this sideboard also features two highly sculptured doors leading to a gold leaf interior with shelving and one drawer. The exterior of this fanciful piece is now presented in silver leaf finished with a luxurious shade of translucent chocolate brown with high gloss varnish. And instead of the whimsical lion’s head feet, the diamond presents a base made from mahogany lined with bronze mirror.
The second contemporary sideboard we are taking a look at today is one with a distinct Asian influence. Designed with bold vivacity in mind, this sideboard presents plenty of space for linen and other accessories, while it has been delicately decorated with art, a lamp, picture frames, and other objet d’art. Paired with a white colour scheme the dark hue of the timber works wonderfully to create contrast, and looks like a statement within the neutral space. Wonderfully flexible, if you are considering a style of sideboard such as this, you will find it works well paired with contemporary furniture, and other modern or bespoke items.
The ideal contemporary bar for any modern home, this sideboard is replete with enough space for all of your bar-ware and stylish dining accoutrements. Give your dining space a boost, and inject a little party life with a practical and statement making sideboard. The different hued panels incorporated into this piece give it a sense of difference and style, and would work wonderfully with a dark or light colour scheme.
Simple yet stylish

Located in the west coast of South America, near to Peru, NAZCA is a tectonic plate whose earth beat made extraordinary volcanic islands, like the Galapagos islands, and impulsed the creation of mid century modern furniture structured by wood and vintage brass. NAZCA Walnut sideboard adds a richer earth beat into your modern home decor.
