Sideboards are a sneaky way to fit in some extra storage, and that’s why we love them. Sideboards provide a modern look while acting as a display shelf, book shelf, junk drawer, or whatever you fancy them to be. These modern modular sideboard cabinets will have you excited to add one to your own home or office.
The Palafitta Modular Sideboard is a visual treat, but it’s also a highly functional storage unit. Suspended in the air by a stainless steel frame, Palafitta both provides storage in three large rectagular units and also leaves room underneath for more storage.
Each storage compartment is placed so that the steel frame doesn’t block it, but rather works in conjunction with it to maximize storage space.

I love changeable furniture. I’m sure there are many like me who don’t want to look at the same boring setup each day, which is why I’m happy to introduce this modern Modular Sideboard from Cubit.

5. Sticks Cabinet System – Wonderful Dutch Design
The Sticks cabinet system by Dutch designer Gerard de Hoop was inspired by looking at a pile of placards against a wall. It consists of boxes in four widths and four depths, each standing jauntily on one leg.Legs come in a variety of lengths, so you can choose different configurations.
By combining the short legs with large or small cupboards, you can make a sideboard or a shoe rack; put large cupboards atop long legs to make a wardrobe. Or mix and match different heights to make an eye-catching centerpiece for a room. A wonderful example of Dutch design. Go to the Gerard de Hoop website for more information.

9. Citti Cabinet
Have you seen a vertical sideboard before? Neither have I! Citti is a welcome solution to the problem of tiny apartments and big city life. New Yorkers and other urbanites don’t have the space for palace-sized furniture (or regular furniture for that matter), and every square inch is precious.
Citti is compact and clean, as well as generous with its vertical storage space. Don’t worry if you aren’t an apartment dweller – Citti comes in a horizontal configuration as well!

My favorite thing about this modern modular sideboard is the lighting on the underside of the table, inside the open cubbies. The lighting makes for a perfect display setup to showcase your prized possessions… or your DVD collection.
