Create Symmetry

This beautiful wooden sideboard is a perfect example of the rule of 3. Even though there are quite a lot of decors and accessories on the table, it still looks balanced, organized, and stylish.

Consider the colors, height, and shape of your sideboard decors and accessories before styling them.


Make It Practical

Style your sideboard to be both chic and functional furniture in your home. Make your sideboard part of your home by using it daily.

Let an Artwork Shine
