Storage is a continual necessity. Although many might feel that the buffet is antiquated, they are making a revival. Not only do they provide great storage, they are also great to serve as a moment of conversation in your living room, dining room, bedroom, or office. A natural wood buffet can always have a home within your home as it can be repurposed for many uses and functions over its life cycle. Below you will find a variation of buffets with natural tones, variants, shapes, and sizes that can complement almost any space.
These three buffets use wood tones in unexpected ways. They each are made of lighter woods that are great in darker spaces to liven up the room or add contrast.
1. Rumi Sideboard
Made of mango wood with a light finish, this Rumi Sideboard is neat and clean with vertical grains that line up with the perpendicular structure. Rounded brass handles complete the look with a striking glimmer.
2. Cut Out Wood And Metal
The Cut Out Wood and Metal Credenza is made of white washed acacia wood and is lined stainless steel. Square cut outs line the wooden doors for a distinct geometric vibe.
3. Sion White Wash Teak Credenza
The Sion White Wash Teak Credenza is made of reclaimed white washed teak. The bottom is made out of blackened mango wood and creates a stark contrast against the teak. The rounded edges soften the furniture or a light and airy look.
These next three buffets all have unusual textured elements on the doors. They will add dimension and mystery to your space.
4. Coyne Credenza
The Coyne Credenza is made of a plinth base and solid walnut frame with an olive wood veneer. The slats allow for the plinth base to come through for a burst of the natural wood color.
5. Reflect Rattan Credenza
The mesmerizing detail of the Reflect Rattan Credenza is created through different geometric shapes and a mixture of dark and light tones. Made with a solid mahogany frame and rattan arurog doors, this tile-like design offers a different perspective depending on where you are standing.
6. Palms Sideboard
The Palms Sideboard is reminiscent of 1970s Italy. Made from traditionally woven rattan stems and mango wood with a honey finish, the horizontal lines of the stems add a linear element to the rounded buffet. The polished brass pulls add some glitz and glamour to the piece.
Conversation Starter Buffets
These final three buffets will catch the eye of your guests and bring some novelty into the space with darker tones and original designs.
7. Apex II Walnut Sideboard
The Apex II Walnut Sideboard has a sculpted aesthetic. Waves of American walnut veneer add movement to the room that also conceals the drawers for a smoothing effect.
8. Gabi Rattan Entryway
The Gabi Rattan Entryway is the smallest buffet of the group, but has the most visual impact. Made of natural rattan outlined in black metal edging, the geometric shape and deep grooves are the most stunning part of the piece.
9. Inez Wood Credenza
Reminiscent of mid century Scandinavian design, the Inez Wood Credenza is made of rotary cut walnut veneer with full aged brass legs. Instead of the traditional cabinet doors, the Inez Wood Credenza offers sliding doors that open to the shelving component. An old world design with modern features.
