The appearance of a dining room can be greatly enhanced by the right choice of dining table and chairs particularly antique accent furniture. You can choose from antique hutches, antique consoles, antique buffets, antique dressers, antique corner cabinets, antique storage cabinets, antique sideboards, antique pediments, antique vaisseliers, antique meubles, antique armoires, antique placards or antique cabinets. Whatever you choose, the intention is to add style and convenience to your home and in this case, the dining area. While a large and elaborate dining room hutch adds grace to the large, formal room, a smaller hutch would work in a smaller dining area and give the dining experience a more relaxed and informal ambiance.

Petite 18th Century Antique French Buffet

A hutch is an indispensible item for a dining room. In addition to a hutch, a server, corner cabinets, a set of cabinets or cupboards or a sideboard are also items of furniture traditionally used in the dining room. Other useful items include a set of cabinets or cupboards with one or more drawers and flat display surface to hold food, serving dishes, and decorative lamps, these surfaces usually stand as tall as three feet. The earliest versions of the sideboard/buffet appeared in the 18th century and never stopped gaining in popularity. These were made in many decorative styles and were frequently ornamented with sleek veneers and inlays.

In modern houses, sideboards have been placed in living rooms, children’s rooms as a study table with a folding work board and guest rooms. An antique English, French, Belgian or Scottish sideboard, hutch, server or corner cabinet is a fashionable accessory. Finely styled antique hutches, antique buffets, antique dressers, antique corner cabinets, antique storage cabinets, antique sideboards, antique pediments, antique vaisseliers, antique meubles, antique armoires, antique placards or simply antique cabinets from the late 18th or early 19th centuries are the most sought after. They are usually made from oak, white oak, beech, Irish pine, walnut, cherry, mahogany or reclaimed wood and can be topped with marble and have mirrors.
