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.
