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.
