Credenzas/Sideboards

Aura Credenza

You’ve seen the Aura Media Unit featured here before, but this is the Aura Credenza and it might just be the answer to your storage issues. Wood veneer and lacquer mix well for contrast, and the three drawers plus an open shelf and two cabinets will hold all sorts of stuff. Removable shelves and a cord escape means it would fit well in an office or living area, hiding your printer and/or other electronics without sacrificing a streamlined, elegant look. I might just have to buy one for my own home office, especially as it’s on sale.

Reflect Sideboard, Small

Perhaps you were fond of the undulating front of the Reflect Sideboard, but you pinned your hopes on a smaller version. Lucky you, those hopes have materialized into the little brother/sister version you see above. Measuring in at 41.3″ wide, this Small Reflect Sideboard will be able to fit into those not-so-large nooks that its bigger sibling simply can’t, and will provide you with storage space and Scandinavian style all in one.

008 Atlantico Low Chest

Here’s another piece to add to your ‘when-I-have-an-extra-$4500-to-spend’ list. This chest from Atlantico (aka De La Espada) smacks of high quality, from the solid planks of wood that make its top, base, panels, and sides all the way down to its lovely slender legs. Mortise and tenon joints plus dovetail joinery tick off two other quality points, and rest assured that attention to detail means seamless connections. Choose between American Black Walnut or American White Oak.

Rocky Credenza/Bookshelf

What the what?! This strange 3D play on perception is called a door-less credenza, or bookcase, if you prefer. Walk around it and you’ll see its surfaces shift and change according to the light and your point of view. See it with books (image below) to help your brain make sense of it. Designed by Charles Kalpakian, of Paris-based design house La Chance.

Shale 4 Drawer / 2 Door Credenza

Storage is a rare commodity for most, and the smokey, shale color of this new credenza from Blu Dot means that it could live pretty much anywhere in a home- bedroom, living, or dining. Leather pulls add a bit of luxury while adjustable shelves and wire management holes are there in case you’d rather store your DVD player and cable box than Tshirts and sweaters. There’s also a Shale 2 Drawer / 2 Door Dresser (shown below), Shale 4 Drawer Dresser, and a Shale Bedside Table.

Seed Furniture

Someone’s got the right idea here. A bureau that can switch from a changing table to a bar, and back again when the time is right. Oh, and maybe you’ll want an armoire? Add a top. It’s modular furniture that doesn’t look cheap, and offers a variety of door materials and styles. And, if a changing table/bar/bureau doesn’t fit your needs, there’s a Media Cabinet and Bookshelf worth a look.

Alden Sideboard

Sideboards are one of those investment pieces that stick with us no matter how much we move, so you might want to make sure you do your research before buying one just because it matches your dining table. Eastvold has an excellent option in the Alden Sideboard. The wood grain runs seamlessly across the door/drawer fronts, giving a unified, sleek look. Dovetailed drawers, soft-close slides, and hidden hinges add to its qualifications. And, hey, this doesn’t have to go in your dining room; it can easily live as a media center, as it accommodates media equipment wiring and has adjustable shelves.

Stockholm Sideboard

Few things manage to hit just the right note of elegant simplicity, but the Stockholm Sideboard by Mario Ruiz for Punt is perfectly pitched. Quality materials, fine detailing, and the absence of drawer pulls creates a minimal luxe look, while the elevated sides add an extra shelving space that will keep books and artifacts* safely placed. Something like this is surely customizable, yes? Of course. Choose between pale rose or gold for the top shelf edging and white, black, stone, or dark brown for the slim legs. See the various veneer options below.

Facecord Cabinet

Burglars in a huge hurry will probably pass this fully functional cabinet right on by, if you’re lucky. If you’re not lucky, they’ll be smart and guess that the legs and the possible lack of fireplace mean that this stack of firewood is actually a cabinet, and then they’ll plunder the heck out of it. (Note: if you’re handy, you have little choice but to do a DIY version of this, and then be smug that you saved a bunch of money.)

Rustic Storage Console

I’ve been looking for a table for my entry for things like mail, keys and other remnants from a long day of work. At the time, I wasn’t able to find anything, so I had something made by a local craftsman for under $300. It’s a nice sturdy piece, but it doesn’t have drawers, and that would definitely keep that area tidier than it is looking now.

This piece by WestElm is actually almost exactly the same size, but it has the drawers that I’m now wishing my custom console had. Constructed from solid mango wood, the piece has a nice muted look.

Reflect Sideboard, Black

You might have seen the natural oak version, especially as we’ve posted it before, but the black finish of this Reflect Sideboard is, shall we say, hot. Designed by Søren Rose Studio for Muuto, each drawer front has corners that curve outwards, reflecting light and capturing our collective interest.
