Looking for a stylish way to add some modern spunk to your spaces? Well, look no further because we have the perfect way to capture just that!

Mid century credenzas are statement pieces of the 1950s, 60s and 70s. But while design trends have placed heavy emphasis on these pieces fairly recently, the credenza is far from new. Originating in 15th century Italy, this piece was originally intended for the preparation of food. And even though its uses have been expanded upon, the same attention to detail is still apparent.

Here are a few of our favorite credenzas that are sure to bring new dimensions to your mid century home!
