credenza + sideboard guide

by Grace Bonney

if i had to shop for one type of furniture for the rest of my life, it would probably be credenzas. or sideboards. or buffets. see, things get a little tricky with naming these days. i find that all three of these tend to refer to low-ish storage units. they often have closed storage and are wider rather than longer, but i’ve found most manufacturers and stores play around with the terms a lot. so i’ve decided to do a roundup of my favorite credenzas/sideboards/buffets (55 to be precise) on the market. some may do double duty as dressers or media storage, it’s really up to you how you use these long, low, lovely pieces of furniture. and, if you’re like me and prefer something old to something new (and usually a little bit more affordable) you can always try these sources for great vintage credenzas: ebay, craigslist, modhaus, surfing cowboys. i hope you enjoy the roundup, i’ve included prices whenever possible and tried to cover some more traditional pieces as well as our modern and mid-century modern fabs. be sure to click “read more” to view the full 55.
