Chinese Credenza.

I like the vintage appeal of this Oscar de la Renta Chinese Credenza for Century Furniture. The finish options for this piece seem endless so it is possible to create a 'jewel piece' that you can really call your own. Finish details such as gold and silver leafing may be added as well as the option to have the piece hand waxed. Hand waxing brings out the luster in fine wood finishes. A skilled artisan applies a special formulation of wax and rubs it to a high sheen.

The Oscar de la Renta Home Collection for Century Furniture is based on Mr. de la Renta’s own designs, as well as adaptations of extraordinary pieces collected over the past 40 years. His furnishings, like his clothing, represent great taste, refinement and elegance.

Oscar de la Renta Home is inspired by the furniture found in Mr. de la Renta's three very different habitats: his New York City residence, his country estate in Connecticut, and his oceanside island retreat in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The result is a collection remarkable for its scope and variety - from sophisticated, 18th Century inspired mahogany pieces, to casually inviting upholstery, to Caribbean woven rattan designs.
