Finding the Right Case Pieces and Storage Cabinets for You

Of all the antique and vintage case pieces and storage cabinets that have become popular in modern interiors over the years, dressers, credenzas and cabinets have long been home staples, perfect for routine storage or protection of personal items. 

In the mid-19th century, cabinetmakers would mimic styles originating in the Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI eras for their dressers, bookshelves and other structures, and, later, simpler, streamlined wood designs allowed these “case pieces” or “case goods” — any furnishing that is unupholstered and has some semblance of a storage component — to blend into the background of any interior. 

Mid-century modern furniture enthusiasts will cite the tall modular wall units crafted in teak and other sought-after woods of the era by the likes of George Nelson, Poul Cadovius and Finn Juhl. For these highly customizable furnishings, designers of the day delivered an alternative to big, heavy bookcases by considering the use of space — and, in particular, walls — in new and innovative ways. Mid-century modern credenzas, which, long and low, evolved from tables that were built as early as the 14th century in Italy, typically have no legs or very short legs and have grown in popularity as an alluring storage option over time. 

Although the name immediately invokes images of clothing, dressers were initially created in Europe for a much different purpose. This furnishing was initially a flat-surfaced, low-profile side table equipped with a few drawers — a common fixture used to dress and prepare meats in English kitchens throughout the Tudor period. The drawers served as perfect utensil storage. It wasn’t until the design made its way to North America that it became enlarged and equipped with enough space to hold clothing and cosmetics. The very history of storage case pieces is a testament to their versatility and well-earned place in any room. 

In the spirit of positioning your case goods center stage, decluttering can now be design-minded.

A contemporary case piece with open shelving and painted wood details can prove functional as a storage unit as easily as it can a room divider. Whether you’re seeking a playful sideboard made of colored glass and metals, an antique Italian hand-carved storage cabinet or a glass-door vitrine to store and show off your collectibles, there are options for you on 1stDibs.

Questions About Sideboard With Veneer
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Burl wood is wood that has a lot of knots or burls in it. When it’s sliced to form a thin sheet of veneer, it has very intriguing and intricate patterns that are caused by the knots. Burl wood veneer is desirable because the look is so unique. Shop a collection of burl wood furniture from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A veneer tabletop is a tabletop that has thin slices of wood glued onto the panels. Wood veneer is often favored over solid wood because it’s lighter, more cost-effective and can act as a barrier for the materials underneath. Shop a wide selection of both wood veneer and solid wood furniture on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 22, 2019

    A sideboard is nearly the same thing as a buffet, but slightly shorter. Standing against a wall in a dining room, a sideboard’s main function is to supply an easily accessible surface for serving trays, bowls or plates of food.

  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

    Sideboards are cabinets with shelves and drawers used to store serving utensils, dinnerware and table linens.

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    To care for a walnut veneer table, dust it with a soft, dry cloth regularly, moving in the direction of the grain. Sop up spills promptly to reduce the risk of staining. When deeper cleaning is necessary, use a soft cloth and a cleaning product formulated for wood. You'll find a wide variety of walnut veneer tables on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 13, 2024
    The purpose of a sideboard is to provide a place to store and organize items for the home. Often used in dining rooms, sideboards work well for keeping serveware and dinnerware free of dust and hidden when not in use. Some people use sideboards to house entertainment centers, media, games and other odds and ends in living rooms, or place them in entryways to provide places to stash cold-weather accessories, bags and shoes. Explore a large collection of sideboards on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertAugust 17, 2021
    A kitchen sideboard is a piece of furniture used for serving food and storing serving dishes and table linens. Kitchen sideboards long and often sit low to the ground. Shop vintage sideboards on 1stDibs.

    Although pieces vary, most designs in the G-Plan range are solid wood. Specifically, the casegoods and tables produced during the mid-20th century were mostly solid teak with rosewood or leather used for handles. Find a range of G-Plan furniture on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 25, 2024
    What you can use instead of a sideboard depends on your specific needs. If you're looking for a place to set up buffet spreads when entertaining guests, a console table may be a good option. For storing or displaying items in the dining room, try a bar cabinet, hutch, bookshelf or floating wall shelves. On 1stDibs, shop a large selection of dining room furniture.
  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

    The terms buffet and sideboard are used interchangeably, although buffets generally have higher legs and stand 34 to 38 inches tall.

  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 28, 2021
    A sideboard table is generally used for storing cutlery, napkins and other dining supplies. Sideboards have much in common with credenzas and buffet tables but they are distinct from both of those other kinds of case pieces. Shop a range of antique and vintage sideboards and other storage furniture on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 2, 2021
    The difference between a sideboard and a server mostly pertains to usage. A sideboard is a side-table with cabinet doors that is used for serving, most often in a dining room (today, sideboards can sometimes be found in living rooms and foyers). In form, a credenza has much in common with a sideboard. Sideboards have short legs or no legs at all. A server is very slim and is meant to be placed along the dining room wall. It is shorter and takes up less room than a sideboard and is also considered to be more formal than a sideboard — a sideboard might offer a surface to serve dinner, whereas a server might best be used to serve dessert. Shop a collection of antique, vintage, and contemporary sideboards and servers from some of the world’s top dealers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 2, 2021
    The difference between a sideboard and a hutch is that a sideboard is a side table with cabinet doors that was originally used for serving, most often in a dining room (now, you might find a sideboard in a foyer or living room). A hutch is essentially a storage piece made of two parts — there is a set of shelves or cabinets on top of a lower unit, which features a counter and either cabinets or a set of drawers. In form, a credenza has much in common with a sideboard. A hutch might be of help in serving tea or other beverages, but it is more of a case piece than it is a piece of furniture that is used for serving. Shop a collection of antique, vintage and contemporary sideboards and hutches from some of the world’s top dealers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJune 15, 2023
    Yes, a sideboard should generally be taller than a dining table in the same space. Look for a sideboard that is about four to six inches taller than the dining tabletop. The shortest pieces you should consider are those of equal height to the table. If your sideboard is shorter than the dining table, your room may look out of proportion. On 1stDibs, find a variety of sideboards.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 17, 2023
    How tall a sideboard should be in a living room varies. Most sideboards are 34 to 36 inches tall. If you're using a sideboard as a television stand, the sideboard should be tall enough to allow the center of the television screen to be at eye level. Otherwise, you can typically choose any size sideboard. Shop a range of sideboards on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 13, 2024
    Yes, you can generally use a sideboard as a TV stand. If you plan to rest the TV on the top of a sideboard, double-check that its weight capacity is great enough to support the weight of the television safely. You may also want to drill the back of the sideboard to add holes for the cords and cables that connect the components of your home theater system. On 1stDibs, find a diverse assortment of sideboards.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 22, 2019

    The main difference between a buffet and a sideboard is that a buffet is usually slightly taller than a sideboard. However, both types of tables are typically found in the dining room and both serve the same function as a place to put serving dishes.

  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 2, 2021
    Buffet tables and sideboards are both types of cabinet furniture. Though often used as a synonym for “sideboard,” a buffet technically possesses a tiered or shelved superstructure for displaying decorative kitchenware. The term derives from buffet à deux corps, a piece which is seen mostly in French Provincial furniture. A sideboard is a side-table with cabinet doors that is used for serving, most often in a dining room. In form, a credenza has much in common with a sideboard (it's not uncommon to find a sideboard in a foyer, however). Find a wide range of mid-century modern buffets and sideboards on 1stDibs.
