Roll Desk Styles - Some contemporary console tables come with a roll desk style, a charming way to hide bills, mail and other paperwork during a dinner or cocktail party. Everybody needs an unloading zone, but it's not like you want a landfill of papers sitting in your hallway. Contemporary sideboards with roll desk styles let you hide the mess elegantly.
The oak sideboard today is a highly sought after piece of furniture. It is still used as a convenient storage cabinet, but it is now found in several other rooms of the house other than the dining room. Some sideboards are being used as decorative furniture pieces in living rooms and even in the foyer of larger houses. Bedrooms are converting sideboards into dressing tables and the location of the bedroom TV set. The modern office now also features a sideboard as a convenient and handsome credenza to augment lack of storage not found in the desk.
The sideboard would be the place where food would be placed before the meal. The hostess would serve each item of the menu from the sideboard. The dining table would only hold the plates, cups, and other eating utensils along with the centerpiece only. At the end of the meal the sideboard would be the staging area for any desserts and cordials.
Once the dishes were washed and dried, the oak sideboard would also be the storage place between meals. The structure of the sideboard was generally five to six-feet in length by eighteen inches deep by thirty-eight to forty-one inches tall. The height was configured to the waist height of the hostess, for the top of the sideboard had to coincide with her ability to carry platters of food to and from the furniture piece. The sideboard had cabinets in the main trunk of the piece with at least one and generally two drawers. The top had to be completely flat without any interruption of its surface as it was the main staging area for serving.
