This sideboard is made from vintage doors in India. As a result, The Canar sideboard is truly one of a kind. You just can’t create old Indian doors in a factory. This traditional recycled wood sideboard is rich with texture and style due to the handcrafted rustic white finish.

THE BEST DESK

The Taylor Writing Desk is a mix of both masculine and feminine energy. We love the mid-century design which features a solid, reclaimed wood top and hand-forged iron legs that flare out from the middle. It is the perfect addition to any contemporary home.

THE BEST MEDIA CONSOLE

Four drawers at the bottom open to plenty of storage space. Modern meets reclaimed wood as we run with the modern farmhouse vibe. (Extra points because it comes in other colors too!)

The Beautiful World of Transitional Buffets

When you hear the word “buffet,” you probably think of an endless row of food that usually ends with a full belly and heartburn. However, when it comes to decorating your home, transitional buffets may be the option you need when you are looking to complete a dining room. You may also have an empty entryway or just need a piece with lots of storage. Buffets –  sometimes referred to as sideboards –come in a wide variety of sizes, materials and styles. It will be hard not to find the perfect one at our showroom or warehouse. When you come to visit us, keep these few questions in mind:

How much storage do you need?

The main function of a buffet is usually storage. Transitional buffets are great for rooms that lack storage. They are usually placed in dining rooms to store china and make the room look less bare. Depending on the size of the room and how much you have to store is important to keep in mind. Some may need a large buffet like our eight-foot Umbria Sideboard, while something smaller like the Essex Buffet could suffice. It all depends on how much space you have to spare.

How neat are you?

When it comes to decorating, one rule remains constant: Clutter is not cute. Much like the trend of floating shelves in kitchens, buffets can have or not have doors, or be see-throughwith glass, like the MSI 442. Therefore, you need to be honest with yourself about how organized you plan to be when showing off your prized china.

Where do you want to place your transitional buffets?

While buffets are usually located in the dining room, there is no reason they have to be confined to that space. A buffet can work in an entryway as a catchall or can even spruce up a hallway with decorative tchotchkes, flowers or mirror. For example, our Haxby Buffet, is a versatile design that will shine in any room.

By taking these few questions into consideration, you can choose the right buffet to use and make sure it won’t cause you any belly ache.
