Truly, whether you find a sideboard that matches your dining room table, or you add a mismatched, unique sideboard to add a contrasting character to the room, it is completely up to your discretion. Some people would prefer to buy their buffet table and dining table as a matched set - it takes the guess work out of trying to decide if two contrasting styles, colors or finishes actually complement each other or just bring the room into an eclectic disarray.
If your sideboard doesn't match your table and it bothers you, you can always add a tablecloth.....to either the table or the sideboard. You choose!
