Credenzas, also commonly known as sideboards, are furniture pieces that function as a form of storage and a table surface. While credenzas were once used primarily as decorative elements in support of dining areas, they are now used to serve a variety of rooms from office conference rooms, to living rooms, home offices, and bedrooms.

What is a credenza?

Credenzas are multifunctional furniture pieces that combine a table surface with storage. Credenzas are typically found in dining settings where they provide additional storage for holding flatware, dishes, and linens, while doubling as an extra table surface to assist in the service of food.

What is a credenza used for?

Credenzas are traditionally used as stationary table surfaces that assist in the service of meals in buffet and group settings. By design, credenzas act as both serving tables and storage cabinets when used in dining rooms and restaurants.

How tall are credenzas?


Credenzas have overall tabletop heights between 20”-36” (51-91.4 cm) that vary to support a range of dining room settings, aesthetics, and functions.
