Trad storage gets a radical revamp
These capacious wooden sideboards not only offer sleek storage, but make a bold style statement too. Made popular during the Fifties, sideboards are a chic way of breaking up wide hallways, hiding away cables as a TV stand, or storing additional glassware and crockery in kitchens and dining rooms.
Or why not use one as a generous cocktail cabinet? Most have the height to stash bottles inside, or display your artisanal alcohol and stylish spirits on a tray on top and store ice buckets, tumblers, high-balls and the like behind closed doors.
