There’s so many ways to utilize a credenza: a low dresser, a coffee bar station, a catch all in the entryway, a media center. At it’s core, it’s simply a short, long storage piece. But don’t be fooled — there are so many styles and variations. Here’s our five faves!
Old Hollywood glam meets mid century styling. We love how the angled grooves on this piece mimic the folds of an elegant men’s tie, while the rich hunter green lacquered finish and lucite with brushed brass accents add a sleek modern touch.
Credenzas aren’t always the stand-out piece in a room; they tend to focus more on function than fashion. Enter this stunner. The hand painted faux bois atop antiqued mirror makes this credenza a piece to remember. It reminds us of a willow tree in the wind — graceful, elegant, and natural.
This two-in-one piece from a favorite local mid century boutique combines a gorgeous credenza with practical shelf space. It captures our hearts with a black cerused oak finish and olive lacquer paint details. What a show stopper!
This vintage reeded bamboo credenza stopped us in our tracks. A great option for adding beautiful texture to an entryway, it could also hold its own among walnut and teak furnishings in a larger room. Mix in some metal and linen accents and you have yourself a beautifully layered space!
Industrial meets organic. A black forest marble wood body paired with graphite metal frame forges harmony between two very different materials. This credenza is a modern and daring utilitarian sculpture for the bold.
Credenza, sideboard, cabinet, console — whatever you call it, these long and lean storage solutions deserve to be beautiful as well as useful! And whether your style tends toward industrial, mid century, transitional, or something else entirely, there’s a credenza out there that’s perfect for you.
