This credenza in Brazilian rosewood was manufactured by Hundevad & Co. in the 1960s. These pieces are commonly confused with the designer Poul Hundevad, who bears the same last name.
The majority of these credenzas were originally designed as the bottom portion of bookcases. Most of these pieces originally came with a plinth (flat) base with a removable bookcase hutch that rested on the top of the credenza.
With the increased demand for Danish Modern in the last five years, a lot of these have been repurposed as media consoles, and the hutch tops are long since gone, as it is with this one.
This particular credenza rests on top of its original spindle legs as it was ordered from the manufacturer. In a happy accident, years of sun exposure have given the rosewood a beautiful patinated glow.
