The term “credenza” seems like a pretty pretentious word, another name for what we commonly know as a sideboard, a buffet or a server. But why do we even have so many names for what seems to be one and the same thing? Even though the similarities are very numerous, there are also small details that distinguish each of these furniture pieces from the other similar options. Also, they’ve each come a long way since they were first invented and a lot of changes occurred over time.
Some ideas are so deep-rooted in our minds that we don’t even think twice or consider alternatives for them. For instance, when furnishing a living room, it’s a given to have a coffee table somewhere at the center of the whole setting. But what if you were to rethink this idea and choose instead of give up the table altogether and to fill the space with something else or to have two or more coffee tables instead of just one?
Initially, a credenza used to be a furniture piece on which food that needed to be tested for poison was kept. This was a ritual done before serving important people and aristocrats. Back then, the credenza had no legs. More modern designs such as the one for the Blade Credenza, show a few design transformations. This one has large doors made from a single board of elm wood and brass door pulls. It sits on a steel frame plated in antique brass and this offers it a slim figure.
