Credenza Hunt 2009


I want a credenza. I want a Danish modern credenza with short tapered legs and no drawers so we can store lots of records in it. I want to put the record player on top of it and have it sit next to the fireplace. This has launched into a full-fledged hunt since the only ones readily available on Craigslist/EBay/vintage stores are hundreds upon hundreds of dollars.

After one particular Craigslist stakeout, I noticed that people use the term “credenza” pretty loosely. Sometimes it’ll look more like a buffet, or even a dresser. Basically, if it’s big and rectangular, people will call it a credenza. Wiki says a credenza is a “sideboard used in domestic or restaurant situations”. Thanks, that’s helpful. Nonetheless, these are more what I’m looking for:
