They are the perfect addition at any time of the year but the sideboard with wine storage comes into its own during the festive, party season. Just how can you style this must-have reclaimed furniture piece so that it shimmers through all seasons?
In the dining room
A recent addition to our range is the Kensal Collection, a collection we chose for its modern, Scandinavian appeal that offers so much. The sideboard is a common feature in the dining room – makes perfect sense to us! – and so Kensal sideboard with wine rack looks perfect alongside the console table from the same range.
Balance the symmetry in the dining room with an extending dining table from the same range. Use industrial style dining chairs to add a hint of the unexpected – these wire-framed back chairs, with leather seating is just one example. Or, you can add more than a note of decadence with upholstered chairs if you feel you want to add both a different texture.
The dining room rug is an essential piece, the platform on which everything is held aloft and we know that the drama of the mineral black rug from the Lois de Poortere collection is more than perfect.
In the living room
Whenever we look at reclaimed wood furniture and other pieces, we exam just how versatile a piece they are – not every piece should be pigeon-holed – in other words, a sideboard with wine storage isn’t just for the dining room.
It has all the elegance you would expect of a piece for the living room and with the many practical elements of this large sideboard with wine rack, again from our new-in Kensal Collection, you can see why is it ideal for the living room.
As well as a rack for wine, there is a cupboard for spirits and mixers complemented by a drawer for other items that really don’t need to be on display.
We have paired this sideboard with the patchwork blue rug, a colour that we love with a brown leather armchair. The oversized metal wall clock is the ideal accessory that is neither lost not over the top.
In the open plan living room
In an open space, you have more options when it comes not just to size but the detailing too. In effect, you can go for more and it still looks understated in the space. Of course, the sideboard with wine rack, like this large sideboard with cupboard and drawer space, can also be used as an item for zoning the space.
The reclaimed wood coffee table on wheels is also ideal in a larger space because again, the chunky metal frame and its generous dimensions won’t swamp the room. Against the beautiful sideboard, there is a connection rather than a competition of ‘who is best’?
The note of change in this scheme is the addition of a grey sofa – you may have been expecting brown leather – but we think the neutrality of the grey allows all the pieces to stand out, a factor that is aided by the grey rug.
