In search of..

{many things..but I won’t bore you with that now. (wink)} A credenza. I desperately need some place for our television. Our setup now is a bit scary but I don’t want to jump the gun and waste my money {or time} on something temporary. Ideally I’d like to design something and have it built. It’s either going to be painted or in a limed/cerused wood. Limed wood isn’t an easy find. I also want it to be large enough so I can fit two lamps on either side of the flat screen television. If it’s painted then the lamps will be wood..I’m thinking maybe something like these, from Wisteria but with an ivory shade. If the piece ends up being wood I have the two porcelain {yard sale find} lamps already! Here are some possible inspiration pieces.
I’m not going to go with black but I like the overall shape and idea of the hardware {really loving the hardware on the piece noted below} on this piece.Love the cerused oak used on this one!
Spotted this beauty on I Suwannee a while back. How great is the color that oversized hardware? I would LOVE to find hardware like this…I like the simplicity and scale of this one.

A vintage credenza.

  1. I love your taste! I too was looking for a cradenza, but being cheap and impatient I ended up with a Freecycle three drawer chest. Eh. Someday. BTW- how do you pronounce "cerused"?

  2. how hard is it to find something when you are looking?? i know i am trying to find a sideboard, at a reasonable price, for my newly updated dining room. my luck has been low.
    found my media piece at RH a couple of years ago which i love. good luck.

  3. I just bought a credenza recently and am in love with it! I will post pics soon. I got it for a steal from a designer friends and saw the same one on Pieces' website for literally thousands more than I paid.

    Keep an eye on TS & Company on ebay. They have great pieces and fantastic prices.

  5. I am having this same issue with a client…and I was honestly thinking of going to an unpainted furniture place and picking something simple, painting it,maybe add some trim and hot hardware. I hate not being able to find exactly what I want, so maybe the answer is to make it yourself?
