It is important now, more than ever, to underscore the benefits of creating a beautiful and relaxing home space. Whether you’re a minimalist or a maximalist, incorporating a credenza into your space is likely the easiest way to instantly transform your environment. Originating from the Italian word for “belief,” credenzas were first used in the 14th-century to store food that would be tested for poison before it was served to aristocrats. Though its function in spaces has drastically changed from then to now, the furniture piece continues to be a staple in many homes. Enrich your space with a bevy of rarified pieces in an array of materials and graphic designs to add a personalized touch of style to your home. From traditional wood options to contemporary metal iterations, consider our top edit of credenzas a must-see for anyone who wants to anchor their space with a highly-curated feel.


Rich grains and texture play off of each other in rustic, yet elegant, credenza pieces from our bevy of favorite brands and designers. From Flair’s traditional 1940’s French Walnut iteration to Pinto Paris’ contemporary Queluz option, wood is the ultimate clarion call of timelessness and is capable of transforming any home. Another look our editors have been loving incorporates nods to the 1970’s where lacquer was at the height of popularity and widely regarded as the material of the future. These credenzas maintain sleek façades and are anchored by clean lines and low-profile frames. When complemented by artful finishes, these pieces easily achieve versatility and add a touch of modernist flair.

Stone / Resin

The Hume Modular Stone Console from renowned designer Kelly Wearstler consists of a vertical series of three “uniquely carved” stone blocks that straddle the line between artful sculpture and utilitarian design. Able to be combined or separated, each piece is a testament to the fact that a work of art can also be fun and functional. Stone possesses an innately classic quality that harkens back centuries to Ancient Greek and Roman civilizations, and evokes the spirit of culture and worldliness in any home. Resin, a textured, composite blend, for its part, anchors this Meteurus credenza. A stunning, exotic granite from Brazil, it combines silver black crystal grains embellished by black biotite and amethysts that make its color spectrum interesting and elegant.


Metal is a widely-popular material in the home decor space given its ability to suit any style from luxurious to rustic and everything in-between. The Huntley Credenza incorporates the material by way of a blackened, stainless-steel body with an American walnut interior. With door fronts that alternate between white parchment, artisanal, clear-seeded glass with antique mirrors, and burnished bronze, there’s no space where this credenza won’t look anything but amazing. Flair’s Edition Brass Wire Sideboard, for its part, applies a “more is more” approach via-à-vis a one-of-a-kind, three-door sideboard covered with natural and patina brass, applied wire that functions to create a geometric design, and retro-inspired brass handles.

How To Decorate A Credenza

Credenza furniture pieces have been hugely popular in the interior design world lately. Originally deferred to as a classic piece one would situate in a dining room, designers are now referring to these structures for a myriad of purposes, and, thus, seizing the opportunity to decorate them accordingly. Whether it’s a statement lamp that will amplify ambient lighting, a graphic vase, a bowl perfect for storing snacks for children (and adults!), or object d'art decoratifs like plates, art books, or frames, this edit of must-have pieces undoubtedly works together to elevate and artfully incorporate any credenza into your space.
