Derived from the Latin word credentia, credenza gives real meaning to credibility. The mid-century act of “Credenza” or credibility started when servants tasted their foods and drinks first before serving them to anybody in order to establish that the food and drinks did not contain any poison. The tasting room for the food and drinks later acquired the same name, credenza. There was a piece of furniture that held the food and, before long, it too acquired the name credenza. Long before the 14th century, this furniture was a simple table covered with a cloth. However, in the years to follow, the table gained so much popularity that furniture makers started giving it special looks with beautiful legs and amazing decorations. By the mid-century, the credenza was one of the most valued furniture in many homes. Discover an incredible range of mid-century credenzas here at Vinterior and see how you can incorporate this stunnin piece of furniture into your interior design.

Why choose mid-century credenzas?

Today the credenza is still one of the most sophisticated furniture additions in any room. A stunning credenza in your home could take the form of a sideboard, a buffet table, a console table or a server. The difference depends largely on the placement of the credenza in a room. Inspired by early century credenzas, mid-century furniture makers created the same quality pieces with added modern fittings and heightened functionality. These bring life and charm to a room while also providing the necessary storage and high quality durable design every home needs.

Designers like G Plan and Ercol paved the way in mid-century credenza design. The most outstanding features include the flat, sleek top surface with a chic finish, as well as short, slim legs. A credenza is not complete without drawers and cabinets used for storage, and many also contain shelving where you can store books, cutlery, files or even tools depending on where you plan on placing your credenza and how you intend to use it.

Introducing a mid-century credenza into your home

The artistic nature of the mid-century credenza allows you to do many things with it. Credenzas come with expansive surfaces and clean lines that allow you to place them against the wall. In fact, it is not uncommon to see credenzas used as TV units, as they are perfect for dealing with the clutter of DVDs and remote controls.
