sideboards (furniture) (case furniture, <storage and display furniture>, ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: In modern usage, a general term for case furniture of various designs, sometimes on legs, with cupboard space beneath and placed along the wall of a dining room for serving, storage, and displaying plate and other precious tableware. However, in early usage may refer to a table, as the term derives from pieces that were often simply a board on legs placed near the dining table. By the 17th century sideboards were being designed with a cupboard or drawers beneath a flat table surface. The top was higher than a standard table, allowing the plate on display to be seen easily, as well as making the food more conveniently accessible to a standing person. Victorian sideboards often had levels or shelves above the primary surface, in order to create more space for displaying tableware. "Dressers (cupboards)" may be similar in design and function, but were typically found in kitchens rather than dining rooms. In modern usage, for side tables used along the walls of dining rooms, use "sideboard tables" or the broader term "serving tables."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Brede, meestal lage ladekasten of kastmeubilair op poten, met kastruimte. De kasten worden langs de muur van een eetkamer geplaatst en gebruikt als bewaarplaats en voor het opdienen van voedsel, alsmede voor het uitstallen van borden en ander kostbaar tafelgerei. Vroege exemplaren bestonden vaak slechts uit een plank die bij de eettafel werd geplaatst, en kwamen uitsluitend voor in ruimten waar werd gegeten. Gedurende de middeleeuwen vervulde de kast dezelfde functie. Vroege Europese dressoirs waren vaak etagegewijs opgebouwd, met schappen waarop koppen en schotels konden worden uitgestald. In de 17de eeuw werden de dressoirs ontworpen met een kast of een aantal laden onder een vlak tafelblad. De bovenzijde was hoger dan bij een gewone tafel, waardoor de borden beter zichtbaar waren en het voedsel eenvoudiger bereikbaar was voor een staand persoon. Soms gebruikte men ook dressoirtafels of zijtafels waarop al het voedsel werd uitgestald, en dienden de kostbaarder uitgevoerde dressoirs uitsluitend voor het uitstallen van servieswaar. 'Keukenkasten (wandkasten)' kunnen ongeveer dezelfde vorm en functie hebben, maar kwamen meestal in keukens voor en niet in eetkamers. Gebruik 'dressoirtafels' voor wandtafels die langs de wand van eetkamers worden gebruikt. 
Spanish ..... Cómodas generalmente bajas y anchas o piezas de caja sobre patas con un espacio para un aparador; colocadas a lo largo de la pared de un comedor y empleadas para guardar y servir. Para mesas laterales utilizadas junto a las paredes de los comedores, use "mesa trinchero.”
