Credenza, cabinets and cupboards OH MY!
Statement pieces don't have to always be artworks, boldness can be given to any space with functional yet eye catching furniture. The slick marble top of a 19th century credenza can calm busy interiors or a strong vibrant cupboard filled with vivid pieces can give bland spaces more oomph! Here are some examples of the great designs you can find in most of the stores near you!
***"Credenza: was a piece of furniture comprising a central cupboard flanked by symmetrical quadrant glass display cabinets, usually made of burnished and polished wood and decorated with marquetry. The top would often be made of marble, or another decorative stone, or of inlaid wood. It became very fashionable during the second half of the 19th century. Originally in Italian the name meant belief. In the 16th century the act of credenza was the tasting of food and drinks by a servant for a lord or other important person (such as the pope or a cardinal) in order to test for poison. The name passed then to the room where the act took place, then to the furniture." Wiki
