Sideboards. Credenzas. Buffets. These versatile storage and display pieces find a natural home in a dining room, nestling serving pieces, candles and other items. But they move easily into other living spaces, from entryways to living rooms to home offices, too. And that’s why we love them.
We’ve gathered together about a dozen standouts, many notable for their warm woods, dramatic hardware, carved details and stunning finishes.
A silvered chalk finish on its faux crocodile door fronts makes this credenza from John-Richard a standout. The Sorano brown case sits atop an arched steel base finished in antique pewter. The design is also available in a two-door chest. The luxury furniture source is based in Greenwood, Mississippi.
Slim metal legs and oversized cabinet pulls contrast with the deeply textural ebony cabinet fronts on this mango wood Oromo sideboard from Portland, Oregon-based Porter Designs. It’s part of the company’s Traveled and Found collection of limited-edition accent pieces made in India.
The Haleyon sideboard, with mesmerizing carved details on the door fronts and brushed gold legs and hardware, is also part of the Traveled and Found collection from Porter Designs.
Four Hands’ rustic wormwood Abaso sideboard with oak finish was part of the Austin, Texas-based company’s High Point Market showroom featuring pieces inspired by Brazilian and European antiques.
Inspired by classic Brutalism architecture, the mango wood Megan sideboard from Sarreid Ltd. is big and bold. It’s made of reclaimed wood, with a dramatic two-tone finish. “Texture, architectural significance and mixed materials allow Megan to move across rooms and environments,” says the Wilson, North Carolina-based company.
Also new from Sarreid is the impressively sized San Marco credenza, made from Russian pine and finished in a distressed blue-gray paint. The piece is 122 inches wide, 16 inches deep and 34 inches tall.
The façade of Dallas-based Arteriors’ Sapphire credenza was inspired by the texture of modernist cast-concrete buildings and features a combination of Chamois Gray eucalyptus and Ebony oak veneers. The three-section piece has adjustable interior shelves and push-latch hardware.
A simple silhouette lets the wood grain shine on this Houston sideboard from Lillian August. Slim burnished brass hardware echoes the piece’s straightforward lines. It’s new to the Roundtop Vintage collection from the company, part of Hickory, North Carolina-based Sherrill Furniture group.
The Brenne buffet from Precedent Furniture is a study in the complex beauty of wood. The company, also part of the Sherrill Furniture group, added the buffet to its Lemieux et Cie collection by designer Christiane Lemieux during High Point Market.
The Terra Luna buffet with dramatic hardware is part of the 25-piece Terra Luna introduction from High Point-based Legacy Classic | Modern this fall. The buffet and other case goods in the group feature a wire-brushed Nightfall finish with contrasting White Cloud fronts.
The Lisse buffet showcases Copeland Furniture’s signature style of minimalism. It’s part of a larger dining collection shown during the Fall High Point Market. All Lisse items are available in solid American black walnut and are manufactured in the company’s headquarters factory in Bradford, Vermont.
