credenza hunt

i'm a driven woman these days. i'm on the hunt for the perfect mid century credenza to house our new tv. everything i've found has been a little too big but i had to share this gorgeous danish piece i found on ebay. i've been trolling for something like this but it's too long for our space. if you're in the market for one this might be a good option. it's available for $710 right here.

Good luck!

You may consider looking at mid-century dressers. My sister and I had the same search about a year ago and just couldn't find anything that was small enough. We ended up finding a great low dresser that met our needs. It wasn't very pricey, so we were able to convert the top drawers (two wide instead of the pictured three wide credenza) into open shelves, and kept the lower drawers as closed storage for CDs, etc. Good luck!

I love these too...I was really lucky about 8 months ago and got a vintage G-Plan teak sideboard on eBay for the total bargain price of 15 pounds {sterling} and in perfect condition too, very similar to the one you show above...so it is worth keeping your eys peeled for vintage online!!

....good too, not to be cutting down any more teak! ;))

Hope you find one, good luck with the hunt grace! :)

I feel your pain, we *finally* found one that was the right lenghth (i.e., less than 6 feet!) after months and months of searching.

In the end we found something that was just barely too long for our station wagon. We had to pull our seats all the way up to the dashboard and then drive 2.5 hours to get it home. It was so worth it though. :)

Good luck!

Okay well that is simply beautiful! This Thomas Obrien Mod Console from Target is not as lovely but is an interesting substitute at low price with a similar style.


Have a lovely day lovely!!

Ooh- Same credenza hunt, same brand new LCD- SNAP!

Auction houses seem to have nice vintage pieces in the $200-$700 range- it might be worth looking there; a lot of them have online catalogues these days.

(I am in Australia though so I'm not sure if the advice translates!)

Stunning and simple. Almost too elegant for a boob tube! (;
Lovely... I am sure the perfect one will come to you in time. I know, I know... patience can be a pain in the butt!

hi! have a look at the OFFI bench box w/o the padding on top! it's not so long and looks really nice, and you can store art books below.

You may want to consider this Paul McCobb dresser posted on Apt. Therapy. It is ideal if you have a small flat screen tv.


It can also be used as a bench.

What about an Eames Storage Unit (ESU)? Not Danish but timeless and super cool. Modernica sell them but there's also a place in New Orleans that does very nice quality knock offs (I bought all of my office furniture from them), http://www.modernwoodworks.com.

This is lovely. Although I'm not looking for a Danish piece, I am on the hunt for something to house/hide a small TV. Maybe this could be an idea/topic for a guest blogger--places to hide unsightly electronics. Everything from TVs to stereos and ipods and phones (while charging) and cords. And perhaps it could also cover things that are so beautifully designed that they don't need to be tucked away.

The latest issue of Domino had a page on credenzas. Perhaps worth checking out.

Oh that Sony Bravia is nice! We upgraded to a 40" LCD ourselves (a white 40" Samsung) and we fortunately had an existing rosewood stereo cabinet to play the role of the credenza. Long low furniture and flat panels go so well together...like peanut butter and chocolate. Good luck...I hope you find and post the credenza of your dreams soon!

Since my plasma is mounted on the wall, I've been searching for a storage unit to sit underneath it to house the DVD player and DVDs. Glad to know that I'm not the only one searching everywhere for the perfect media storage unit!

Definitely a nice piece. Looks like your eBay price has gone way up since you posted this.

Hey fellow Anonymous who wants to hide devices/cords while charging -
Martha Stewart addressed just this topic on a recent show and make a quite nitfy little box to house these items while charging - it's up on her website as well.

That's gorgeous. I'm right there with ya sister, looking for the perfect credenza for my entryway. The miracle credenza I seek can be long, but not too deep.

If I see something that seems like it works for you, I'll send it your way.

My friend Eszter put two small credenzas (or maybe they're end tables?)together and it's looks pretty great, too:

we've been on an 18-month hunt for the perfect credenza and finally found one at warehouse antiques' ebay store. we offered them slightly less than their $1500 asking price and the offer was accepted, shipping was reasonable, and they were efficient and lovely when completing the sale.o

You are a woman after my own heart! I had just posted this same thing on my blog, I've been looking for years!

Prolly not as interesting to you, but I just saw this on Finkbuilt:


Not quite as elegant as a credenza (which I would prefer) but it sure is fun ;-)

Good luck!!
