What Is It?

A Sideboard or buffet, also known as a buffet table, is a long, low piece of furniture that's usually placed in a dining room to store and display items. It's also used as an extra surface for serving food. You'll find sideboards and buffets are versatile enough to have in a living room, an entryway, and a hallway as a storage and display piece, as well. You may even decide to repurpose a long, low bureau or a console Side Table with a drawer by moving it into your dining room to function as a sideboard or buffet.

What Is It Used For?

A buffet or a sideboard is designed to provide ample storage for your formal and special occasion dishes, flatware, and linens you'd usually use in a dining room. It also serves as a surface area for placing dishes or trays of food. When it's not in serving mode, the top surface is usually used to display a symmetrical array of decorative accents, such as candles, lamps, and artwork.

The best Dining Table for you will be one that works for your budget, is solidly constructed, fits in your space and has a style you'll love for years. There are some core factors you should consider when choosing a good one.

First, be wary of giving into trends, said Christophe Pourny, a master furniture restorer and the author of "The Furniture Bible," who noted that a good table should last at least five to 10 years. "If you get something too funky, with too many weird details, one day you may wake up and wonder what you were thinking," he said. "Keep it simple and sturdy."

A note on chairs for your new table: If you don't have Dining Chairs already, the most important thing is to make sure the new ones fit at the table. "People used to always buy tables and chairs as sets, but don't do that as much anymore," explained Ms. Harris. If you're starting from scratch and buying online, Mr. Russell suggested buying as a set, but if you're in-store, you can try out different floor models. "People should feel free to mix and match," Mr. Pourny suggested. In a small space, he also recommends buying extra chairs and using them in other rooms when you don't need them at the table to save space.

The main distinction between a Tea Table and a coffee table is that a coffee table is a small, rectangular table placed in front of a living room sofa. On the other hand, a tea table is a high, round table that is commonly positioned near a sofa or tables and chairs to serve visitors with a tea-drinking set.

The coffee table gradually evolved from the tea table, which has been used in Europe for centuries. However, unlike traditional round and high tea tables, the coffee table has seen a significant transformation in design.

A coffee table requires a lower base, about 20 inches from the floor, but less than a tea table's 27 inches height.

Tea tables are typically used to serve tea or other hot beverages to the guests such as, espresso, cappuccino, coffee etc. Coffee Tables are used for what they are named for: putting coffee on them.

On the other hand, the contemporary coffee table is frequently stylized for ornamentation or transformed into a functional piece of furniture for usage in a common area such as a television room.

The humble bedside table, or nightstand, is often overlooked when decorating the bedroom. You may think that you can do without that extra piece of furniture but you will come to miss it when you want to put down a book late at night, take off your watch or jewelry before a nap or merely to have a glass of water at hand for when you are unwell.

A Bedside Table is a simple convenience, it's an easy and small, storage cum display,for the bedroom with many plus points. So don't go without it! Pick a style that matches your needs and always have personal conveniences close by through the night.

If your bedroom is actually stamp-sized and you really don't have the space for multiple pieces of furniture, use a chest of drawers as a dresser cum bedside table. It'll give you ample storage for makeup, toiletries and medicines, and a tabletop close to the bed to place a glass of water and a few good books.
