Holiday sideboard dining room buffet for holiday entertaining on Thou Swell @thouswellblog

I’m excited to share a fun holiday vignette I put together with AllModern – the perfect entertaining hub with some festive spirit fit for the season! I found this fabulous old-school cabinet from their holiday furniture shop, with a mid-century silhouette and even space for a turntable with a hinged panel on top! I made it the entertainer’s best friend by filling it with equal parts dinnerware and bar supplies and used the turntable space for easy access to glasses. On top, I featured some stylish and seasonally-appropriate accessories from their decor holiday shop, including funky DwellStudio candleholders, a white deer figurine, and gold flatware in easy reach. The blues and whites look stunning in front of our new dining room wall color and I’ve already put our new pieces to use with Thanksgiving entertaining at my dad’s house.

AllModern still has Cyber Week savings on their site so don’t forget to check out their great selection of modern furniture and decor. Continue reading below to see how I stocked up this great new piece with everything my dad needs for entertaining guests, right within reach in the dining room.

Aren’t these candleholders great? They fit the mid-century vibes of the vignette perfectly.

The sideboard’s hinged top is a surprisingly useful feature that adds easy access to glasses! We might even consider putting a record player up here – my dad loves old jazz so it would make the perfect vintage sound system.

I love a piece that combines style and function. Plus, the brass hardware and warm mahogany finish are perfect for the dining room’s new design scheme. Do you have any favorite pieces in your home for easy entertaining?
