Welcome to our world of terminology in the Noxie Limited Furniture space. First what is a credenza?

A credenza is a sideboard, or a cupboard if you want to be traditional which sometimes is flanked by glass display cabinets, and usually made of burnished and polished wood and decorated with marquetry. The top would often be made of marble, or another decorative liquid- and heat-resistant stone. All these esthetic depends on your taste and style. Remember in NL we help customize your office to suit your taste and style. Your comfort means a lot to us.

Yes, back to our question, what’s the point of a credenza?

It provides a side surface and storage for so many things that you would want to keep away for privacy. You can use the top to display decorations like figurines or even display your family and loved ones photos to keep them close to your heart always.

So, the credenza in the office is usually placed next to a wall. You can also use the credenza as a secondary work surface to that of another desk, such as a pedestal desk, in your typical executive office.

  • Who invented the credenza?

It has been attributed to the brother Lorenzo (1425–1477) and Cristoforo Canozi (ca. 1426–1491) from Lendinara, in northern Italy, and associated with their early style.

The piece is decorated with a total of eight panels. The top two-thirds of each panel contains a circular form resembling a rose window, with a row of intricate lancets below; square fields, each covered with rectilinear patterns in intarsia, occupy the bottom thirds of the panels. The six panels that form the front face are divided into three pairs of doors, each opening into a two-shelf interior where dishes could be stored.
