The sideboard in the beginning was used for storing plates, glasses, cutlery, the dishes in particular. In general, its place was next to the dining table and its function was to store the complements that are necessary for dinner service.
Over the years, both the design and the functionality of the sideboard have been evolving. It doesn´t have to be used necessarily to store accessories for dinner service. It is used to store any type of complements, whether the TV remote control or throws for the sofa.
