When it comes to credenzas we have to give them credit—they hide the clutter we throw at them and they hide it well (sorry, space under the bed). While subtle differences can be called out between a credenza, sideboard, and buffet, most are happily considered interchangeable. Rather, your biggest sticking point should be style. We love a lacquered, Asian-inspired credenza, but have serious feelings for an Art Deco case with parquet inlays too. Our advice? Let your space guide you—or if you’re up for full re-do— design entirely around a credenza!
