Minnesota-based Eastvold Furniture creates updated versions of the classic mid-century must-have: The credenza. “The credenza is really a box but it’s done so well,” explains designer and owner Matt Eastvold. “I really love its versatility — it can blend with traditional homes or a glass New York City high-rise apartment. It’s just a really functional piece that looks great.” At Eastvold, you can find both modern credenzas with funky, colorful steel bases or classic renditions in sleek walnut. Whatever your design preference, each piece — made from locally sourced solid wood and named after small Minnesota towns — can be custom-made for your needs. Even sweeter? Large items ship for free, with white-glove service to boot, which beats hunting down a coupon code.
