Antique French buffets or sideboards are always in demand and play an important role in French antique dining rooms entrances and hallways. Storage is always an asset but they are also a wonderful base for a display. Ultimately, an antique buffet and an antique sideboard are interchangeable names for the same piece of furniture. The name only changes based on where the furniture is placed. An antique sideboard placed in the dining room is called a buffet, but once it is moved to the living room, it is referred to as a sideboard Antique buffets were originally designed to store dishes, flatware, and entertaining pieces, and many people still use them for this purpose. They often have one or more small drawers for storing flatware and small items, along with larger cabinets below (sometimes with shelving) to store dishes and larger items Antique French buffets and sideboards are also utilised in place console tables if space permits There are so many differently styled antique French buffets and sideboards - there are classic antique French Empire styles, Provincial styles and elegant Louis XV styles, art deco and more.
