Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on the best modern buffets! They provide ample storage space for table linens, dishes, glasses, flatware and more.

 

Buffets (also known as sideboards), bars, and display cabinets will complete any dining room! They’re essential for entertaining and with the holidays quickly approaching one can’t go wrong with a beautiful modern buffet! This season there are quite a few gorgeous modern buffets that are perfect for the modern rustic, modern farmhouse, or modern coastal dining room to name a few. They’re ideal for organizing/storing dishes, flatware, glassware, tablecloths, table runners and that’s just the beginning. 

Not only are buffets great for storing your entertaining essentials, but they’re ideal for placing your appetizers or desserts on (with a trivet of course) when hosting a party! The perfect buffet will look stunning adorned with your favorite photo frames, ceramic vases, family heirlooms, and more throughout the year! 

If you’re searching for the perfect buffet for your dining room, you’re in luck. Today, I’m excited to share 20 of the best modern buffets in a variety of styles and price ranges.
