In the Shop: Credenza

The custom French Walnut Credenza in the shop was inspired by this piece.

Filled with delightful swirling grain, the credenza’s stunning slab lumber was sourced from a single tree cut into flitches by specialists in imported and figured logs.

The three doors slide to reveal an adjustable shelf. It will make quite a statement in its Philadelphia home.

This piece has been described as a low console table, or a credenza.

According to Wikipedia, “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.”
