People, and stores, use the terms sideboards and buffet tables almost interchangeably. But really, what is the difference between a sideboard and a buffet table? V
ariations of sideboards began to take shape, until we have a slight differentiation between sideboards that have short legs, or sit directly on the ground, and buffet tables which may have longer legs that raise the unit up off the ground. The buffet tables
may be used more as a method of serving food, a place to put food for people to help themselves, instead of just a storage unit for dishes and silverware.
