1. The Georgian Sideboard
Characteristically, the Georgian sideboard was a long, narrow, table-like piece of furniture. It featured cellaret cupboards and cutlery drawers. It was mostly used in the dining room as a serving table. These were designed by Sheraton and were either straight fronted, curved at the ends, and at times a recessed breakfront. When recessed, the sideboards were meant to reduce the effect of having large furniture pieces in a room.
This type of Regency sideboards had an arched central portion, in the underbelly of the long drawer. Here, you would find strung, curved or semicircular lunettes. It would also have tapered or turned legs standing on block feet or spade. The thing with Georgian sideboards is that they have six kegs. There are four at the corners and two at the center of the recess on either side. The common wood from which the sideboards were made included beefwood, cedar, and mahogany.
2. Eastlake and Talbert
In the late 19th century, Eastlake and Talbert designed a different kind of sideboard. Its basis was on the renaissance revival movement for which Eastlake and Talbert were well-known. This type of Regency sideboard had a cupboard with two doors. It was paneled and curved. Some contained shelves and had a mirror at the back. Another great feature was an overhang or hatched cornice. These were supported by carved or turned columns.
Of course, the sideboards came in different shapes and sizes. All of them featured straight lines that formed square shapes. To make the handles, the artists used pressed metal. With time, the sideboards began to feature more Edwardian flowering. It had swan-neck or broken pediments, fluted & reeded decorations, and surface-deep carvings of rosettes, shells and so on. At this time, regency sideboards were made from cedar, maple, oak, and mahogany. It was produced all over the world until the period succeeding the First World War.
