A Huge Roundup...

108 of our Favorite Credenzas (at every price point)

Emily Henderson_Credenza_Roundup_3

The credenza has long been one of our favorite pieces when it comes to the perfect pairing of function, style, and storage and we are no stranger to them either. We’ve done “1 Credenza, 4 Ways“, I’ve used them in my dining and living room, Brady used one in his living room, we’ve used them in sponsored content and we most recently used one in an office that we will be revealing very soon. Like a dining table or a sofa, these long boxy things are a staple in our life.

They work in almost every space no matter the style and can instantly add function and storage. It is a win-win and since they can be found both new and vintage, you can find them at a variety of prices (although if online is your thing we have done the work for you below). Traditionally they are a combo of both drawers and doors, but in all our pinning and research for this post we quickly found out that you could call it a plethora of things and no matter how it’s configured you could still turn up with the same product results. So, whether you call it a credenza, buffet, cabinet, or sideboard is really up to you, but rest assured that we have pulled some of our favorites below at every price point.

You can even get creative and DIY your own version like we did with this guy above – which obviously didn’t work out quite as well as anticipated in the long run after it started bowing in the center with the weight of those books. But, we tried and it worked for the short time that we used it in that space before finding a piece that suited the room (and the books) a little bit better.  So without further ado here are some of our favorite credenzas on the web at every price point.

Getting things under $750 was a little bit tricky for this roundup but I am still a big fan of some of these. I haven’t tried them in person but I would be very into #1 in a midcentury inspired living room, or #27 in a more minimalist scandi inspired dining room. If traditional is more your vibe then you can’t go wrong with #23. I am very tempted to check that one out in person for our new house.

Moving up in price definitely gives you more options. We used #28 in a recent office reno that we have coming up very soon and it is so pretty in person. I currently have #21 staged in my old house (which just hit the market in case you missed this post), and #14 is in my current living room until we make some permanent furniture decisions.

I am very into #26 and it reminds me a lot of the piece that we currently have in our living room setup as a bar. Brady used #18 in his living room and still says that it is one of his favorite pieces even if he did have to have 3 guys help him carry it in. If your looking for casual and beachy then #17 is sure to fit the bill, and I love the combo of open and closed storage in #24 which would make it very fun to style.

Some of these are expensive but what is a roundup without a few dream pieces? #4‘s combo of burlwood and lucite is what regency glam dreams are made of, #16 has been on my wishlist for as long as I can remember, and #15 is looking very similar to something that we are considering for our new living room.

If any of you own or have used any of these in person please let us know below and if there are any amazing credenzas that you have found online that you think we should know about please let us know in the comments!

  1. OMG. Can you believe that earlier today I use the blog search to look for EXACTLY THIS???? (Not sure why, I don’t live in the US… but it’s always nice to look at them for inspiration at least)

  2. Yessssss! I didn’t know I needed this post, but seeing some of these credenzas is making me soooo happy! Thanks for all the work rounding them up in one place. ❤

  3. Is it ‘okay’ to use a credenza as an entryway table? Or would that look weird? I’m in the market for new entryway table and love this round-up!!

    1. I know you’re asking for Emily’s advice, not mine, but…
      I have a beautiful teak credenza as furniture in my entryway and I think it makes so much sense. We have space on the top for a bowl for our keys and some pretty items and all our day-to-day bags, backpacks, gloves etc. fit neatly inside. For us it is a great solution as we don’t have a mudroom.

  4. OMG I’m lusting after #17 on the expensive list and #18 on the above $1500 list, and I’m in a studio apartment and don’t have room for ANY credenza!

  5. Thanks for this gigantic roundup!
    I don’t know if it is just me, but I was only able to get to this post through the link you posted on Facebook. By just going to your blog page as usual, yesterday’s post on Scott Horne’s home is the most recent post.

  6. Thanks for this, I have an obsession with credenzas. I love that anthropology one. My favourite thing about these posts is finding new furniture stores I didn’t know existed. That Kalon company is totally what all of my hippy sustainable furniture dreams are made from.

  7. This post is weirdly not coming up on the blog. I only got here through a pinterest link.
    But anyway what are you thoughts on using a sideboard as a TV unit. Is there any difference, other than these tend to be slightly higher?

    1. Hi – jumping in here. Sideboards are great as tv stands, but a few things to consider: some of them will be deeper than standard media stands (to accommodate serving dishes and other large items), and there may not be an obvious spot for your cable box or other components. If you don’t mind either seeing your components or opening doors when you need to use it, you’ll be fine. There are also a few that have open shelves that would work. Hope that helps!

  8. Saw the title of this post and said “Ah, I will see my favorite of all time forever out of my budget cedenza here!”. Idk why it made me so excited. But you missed it! The Lake credenza by BDDW. OMFG. SO BEAUTIFUL!!!

  9. Thanks for this roundup, it’s helpful for considering multiple styles and colors (dark versus light wood, etc.)

    I tend to veer straight to West Elm (based on price point and design) and am increasingly interested in online retailers like Article (thanks for featuring) and Interior Define — I’ve been bummed by the erosion in quality at some of the larger players (I’m looking at you, Room and Board) and hopefully because they’re smaller they can negotiate better materials at a Lowe price point, I dunno…and props to the other commentators, Organic Moderism is great, always forget about them.

    The other epiphany I had reading this blog post is that maybe vintage isn’t such a bad idea– sometimes you see these gorgeously curated vintage/modern boutique furniture sellers, and it’s like seriously, you want how many $$$$ for that, but between Craigslist, eBay and flea markets, there’s tons of good stiff at less than a grand, and since vintage is normally solid wood, it’s probably much better quality and durable than a lot of what the big box guys are selling…

    Final thought — sorry — in advance of Valentine’s Day, it would be awesome if your team could share some thought on how to decorate with (or around) the hetero male…?

    I for one live among an attractive (read: NOT) sculpture garden of road bikes, mountain bikes, workout equipment — and the deadliest offender– giant hideous speakers. Any assistance/ recommendations for making this stuff disappear (ha) or not be so front and center, would be AWESOME.

    1. vintage is such a good way to go and depending on where you live you could find something really cool! i live in lamesville, alabama so i had to order my credenza from etsy. so shipping was a B. but the uniqueness and quality that i got? i’d rather pay a chunk of shipping knowing i got a one of a kind piece than a big box not so great quality piece that every body else in their house has too. and on sites like etsy you can find buffets/credenzas from $300-900 (and sure $2000). i would give it a look! don’t forget chairish.com.

  10. So funny, I just bought a credenza yesterday after agonizing over it for months, and saw this after the fact. Luckily, my purchase was on your list! Yay!

  11. Emily and team, thanks as always for including various price points in your round ups! It’s nice to see that great design doesn’t have to break the bank!

  12. Thanks for this roundup EHD team! I’m always hunting for good storage furniture options, especially ones with doors rather than drawers which look too much like a dresser to me. This was great.

    One question for anyone, are there tall/narrow storage options for a dining room anymore or is that too much like an early 90s china cabinet? Part of me wants the extra storage in a tall piece of furniture but I haven’t found anything that looks modern.

    Thanks again EHD and other commenters for pointing me in the right credenza direction!

  13. eBay’s a great place to find midcentury credenzas here in the U.K. (and probably Stateside too). I found one for our living room for £200 (about $250) and I’ve since seen the exact same piece in two different vintage shops for £800 and £1100. You can see it here: bit.ly/2kBroom (not styled but still pretty!)

  14. After the grand success of Play Station 4 (PS 4), Sony has announced the next version of Play Station, the PS 5. It will obviously be more powerful and rigid than the PS 4, for better and smooth gameplay experience. If you are a hardcore gamer and love console games, you must be interested in checking out the technical details of http://www.playstation5ps.com/ps5-features/ and also the release date. Just visit my site here for all the information you need.

  15. The last OnePlus flagship was so incredible that I can’t wait to get my hands of the OnePlus 4.
    I heard it was coming out in mid 2017 and I just hope OnePlus takes care if the issues with the last phone.
    I’m hoping OnePlus 4 will give one hell of an competition to other flagships in the industry. To know more about OnePlus 4, its just take a look here http://www.oneplus4update.com/
