I’m going to be totally transparent here, and tell you that I technically have no idea what a sideboard actually is compared to any other piece of storage furniture. All I know is that after some very strategic Google image searching and several misspelled words, I’m now informed that there is a difference between a dresser, credenza, sideboard, and storage cabinet.
