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.
They’re practical, easy to install and extremely versatile. We use them to hang our coats, bags, scarves, to organize our jewelry and to keep things off the floor and easily accessible. We’re talking about wall hooks and their ability to adapt to a variety of different decors and settings. The simple and basic ones are nothing to be impressed by but there are also some interesting designs that stand out each in its own special way.
The terms credenza, sideboard, buffet, server and even console are used interchangeably nowadays by both furniture makers and shops. The distinctions between these pieces which were once defining are now mere formalities, often overlooked. Still, some details are still there. The Odessa cabinet is closer to being a sideboard than to anything else. It has elegant, sharp, tapered lines and polished bronze top and sides.
