Is there a more iconic piece of 1960s furniture than the classic sideboard? There is something unique and distinctive about sideboards of this era, and it’s no wonder that they’ve proven to be so popular among homeowners who love mid-century and retro style. Sideboards have been a feature of homes in England for hundreds of years, although they haven’t always looked the same as the 20th century incarnation. Early sideboards took the form of a shelf fixed to the wall close to the dining table, which would be used to hold food and plates during meals. Thomas Chippendale came up with the innovative idea of taking this shelf, or table, and fitting it together with cupboards to create a single piece of furniture. He added drawers, legs and decoration and the result was the sideboard. Over the intervening period, the sideboard changed little and even today they still have the same recognisable shape and design. Browse Vinterior today and discover beautiful 1960s sideboards that will bring a touch of retro glamour to your home.
1960s sideboards: the key elementsSideboards from every era boast the same basic styling – a long, flat surface on which items can be displayed and food placed ready for service as well as several cupboards below in which plates and accessories can be stored or several drawers in which cutlery and napkins can be stored. Some even feature both.
There are examples of 1960s sideboards that double up as a drink’s cabinet, with a drop-down cupboard and slide out shelf as well as dividers in which to stack bottles.
Many 1960s cabinets are made from high quality solid woods like teak, and still retain their natural colour and finish today. One further defining feature of 1960s sideboards is the addition of long, narrow legs which hold the piece around a food from the ground.
Why buy 1960s sideboards?There are many furniture manufacturers today who still produce sideboards for both living rooms and dining rooms, and some of these have even taken their inspiration from 1960s retro style. However, modern pieces are usually considerably less durable and robust than genuine vintage pieces which were crafted from quality solid woods like teak.
1960s sideboards also have a particularly unique appearance and an authentic retro look which cannot easily be replicated. A true vintage sideboard brings its own individual character and personality to your room, adding its own distinctive flair to any home.
Not only is a 1960s sideboard an attractive addition to your home, it is also an incredibly practical piece, adding storage and display space where you need it most. Bring the swinging sixties back to life in your dining room and find a gorgeous sideboard from Vinterior.
