If you HAD to pick....Sideboard dilemma...

Monday, April 11, 2011

So hubby and I are at a standstill over a kitchen sideboard decision. This has been going on for a year. He will not go for anything old or vintage and wants a new piece. I'll compromise because I really want  to get this kitchen somewhat completed so we have decided we'll let my readers decide on which way to go ( I can't believe he even agreed to this but he claims his choice is the far superior one and everyone in the universe will agree with him). So here we go. This is our space that needs a new sideboard. We have a glass kitchen table (not pictured) and dark leather parson chairs.
Please ignore the mess. We put this temporary table up last October for my kid's birthday for a buffet area and well, it never went back down. Now it holds all the kids crafts and random newspapers.
Hubby Option. He likes the copper and thinks it will go with our ugly fruitwood kitchen cabinets. Cirque Three Door Sideboard available at Crate & Barrel.
My pick. I love the grainy wood and legs and I think will look good for a long time. I don't really care if it matches or not. Bathurst Credenza from Style Garage.
So which one folks? They cost around the same (Style Garage has a promotion going on). Which one would you pick for the space? Please give your opinion so that this feud will finally be over!

Both of them look great, but I think your pick is better, like the legs more on the second one;)

Love the legs on yours, and the horizontal graining is to die for, but I'm an absolute sucker for copper so your hubs' choice gets my vote. Sorry.

I'm with you! your table has more character and looks more spacious...for all those wonderful "goodies"!

I like them both but definitely prefer your choice- although it's modern, the grainy wood warms it up making it seem softer than the other.

I'm going with your choice on this one. I like the grain detail and the legs better than the other one.

I second your choice, I am a contemporary kind of gal and like the lighter color and the legs on your choice:):) Though copper is sleek and sophisticated...

I love your choice as well. It is light and airy looking, not so heavy. Good luck!!

I'm definitely partial to the second as it would be a lovely fit in my house. My kitchen cabinets are quarter sawn walnut aligned horizontally, much like your choice.

Sorry to your hubby - but I too like no. 2.

I like your pick on this one, because it seems much larger and grander, and you can get storage out of it, plus I agree that the wood tones are much softer and I love when things aren't too matchy!

Good luck ;)

I like your pick too. The horizontal wood grain and legs are very stylish. I find the first one a little too heavy-looking.

I think I actually might like the hubby's better (I know, you hate me right now)...*BUT* I think you are right that your choice will actually look better in the space and look better for longer! See, I really sided with you (c;

Both are nice. But with the little peak of the chair and the kitchen cabinet I can see, I give my vote to your better half :-)

I love your husband's pick. I always gravitate toward darker, more masculine styles.

The first one! The hubby gets my vote :)
