Whether you use them in entryways, dining rooms or in living rooms, credenzas are a great way to store and hide some of your knickknacks, media components and even things such as dishes and vases. Furthermore, the surfaces of these handsome pieces of furniture are perfect for decorative items—such as coffee table books, sculptural items, frames and even a small plant or some flowers. There are dizzying options of credenzas in the market but here are five that we think are handsome and appropriate for a New Yorker’s dwellings:
Cache Media Cabinet
From The Source’s Cache is an all teak media cabinet that comes in a variety of legs. Head to their store in Greenpoint, Brooklyn or their Chelsea location to see the piece in other wood and leg combinations and while there, be amazed at all the beautiful furniture these guys make.
Suspend media console
This marble, wood and metal unit from CB2 mixes cold and warmth in material and color making it easy to fit into many different homes. With a height of 29 inches, it’s a bit taller than your average credenza but it’s a look that works well for different rooms and at $899, it’s not going to break the bank but will look as though it did.
Lap Long and Low
Despite its barely there aesthetic and dimensions, the Lap Long and Low from Blu Dot has a lot of personality. It comes in four color and leg combinations and is sure to please not just those after a modern look but also those with varied tastes.
urbn 2.0 Entertainment Cabinet
This all-wood cabinet available at ABC Home and Carpet is reminiscent of those architects and engineers used to store blueprints. It’s got a rustic look, which will work well for those seeking that classic look. With six drawers and three open slots for electronics, it’ll be easy to keep the media area tidy.
Those looking for a simple, clean look (and a nice budget option) can turn to this white Ikea number. At $239, you can’t go wrong with this or many other options at the Swedish furniture retailer.
