By definition a credenza is a long low side cupboard, a buffet or a bookcase with a flat top, usually with file drawers and legs. The origin of the name of this furniture piece comes from the Italian word “credentia”,which means “trust” and is associated with the practice of placing food and beverages on a sideboard to be tasted by a servant in order to make sure that none of these contained poison. Since that time the function of credenzas has changed significantly and they have become a valuable and functional furniture piece in contemporary homes and offices. Credenzas are usually made of wood, but contemporary credenza cabinets feature brass, leather or other materials for a more contemporary look.
