In iMovR’s furniture design philosophy, the sit-stand table is usually the centerpiece, and various accessories complete the office. It started out with matching two-drawer file cabinets, but the idea of building an active office furniture “collection” in the classic sense really started to take off with matching keyboard trays, center drawers, monitor risers, and now the two-door credenza. It’s nice that they’ve done this in both their premium 3D-laminate desk lines as well as the luxury solid wood standing desk lines. Available in multiple sizes, the two-door credenza adds anywhere from 8.9 to 12.2 cubic feet of storage, making it the largest piece of matching accessory furniture we’ve seen yet in a standing desk line (although we hear several more pieces are coming, like book cases and etageres). Made in Michigan, these credenzas are extremely well constructed, and come with the same industry-leading warranties as their matching desks.

|Positives||While it's easy to find a matching mobile file cabinet for most standing desks these days, it's much harder to find larger cabinetry that matches. This 2-door credenza comes in several different sizes, holding between 8.9 and 12.2 cubic feet of stuff. It comes in both 3D-laminate and solid wood to match iMovR's desk lines, all made in America. Exquisite workmanship and component quality. Four internal shelves are easily repositionable. Sensible routing for any power cables you might want to run into the cabinet. Same warranty as on the desks (15 years on 3D laminate and 5 years on solid wood).|
|Negatives||Hard to come up with any negatives on this one. We tested both the 3D-laminate and solid wood versions and they're both extremely well made.|
The Largest Storage Accessory We’ve Seen Yet for a Standing Desk
Part of iMovR’s Solid Wood Collection, the two-door credenza was created by iMovR’s lead furniture designer, Vincent Leman, to perfectly complement any iMovR solid wood standing desk. It can be ordered in any of their 38 species+stain combinations to match the desk as well as other solid wood accessories that we’ve previously reviewed such as the mobile file pedestal, premium drawer or fly deck. The wood credenza adds a whopping 10 cubic feet of additional storage.
We recently updated this review to include the new 3D-laminate version of this two-door credenza, which actually comes in three different sizes and starts at a significantly lower price point. Depending on the size, these credenzas offer 8.9 to 12.2 cubic feet of storage.
Same Construction Quality as the iMovR Solid Wood Standing Desks
iMovR is renowned for making the very best luxury solid wood standing desks in the industry, in an artisan hand-crafted, 7-step process that takes about six weeks to produce. See our review of the Lander Solid Wood Standing Desk for all the info on that process, their sourcing of sustainable domestic species, and more. Like the desktop, the credenza carries a 5-year made-in-USA warranty.
The top of the unit is made entirely of ¾”-thick solid wood, with ergo-contouring identical to the Lander Lite desktops. The sides, doors, and shelves are all veneered over a core of domestic cabinet-grade plywood. A total of four repositionable shelves are provided, and there are two cable pass-thru holes in the floor of the cabinet for routing any charger cables, power cables, speaker cables, etc., that you might need to discretely guide out of the cabinet. The doors are mounted on fancy “soft close” hinges; we’ve seen soft-close drawers before but this is the first time we’ve seen this sort of snazzy hinge on cabinet doors. Foot levelers are built in so the cabinet can always lay perfectly level even on uneven floors.
3D-Laminate Versions are as Elegant and Ultra-Durable as the 3D-Laminate Standing Desks
In the 3D-laminate version the credenza comes in three different sizes: 35″, 41″, and 47″. The features and depth/height dimensions are very similar to the original design in solid wood, with the exception that the solid wood version comes with soft-close hinges and the much less expensive 3D-laminate cabinets come with standard door hinges.
Whereas the solid wood version is constructed of a solid wood top and all other panels are veneered, the 3D versions are fully-laminated on the top, sides and fronts of the doors, but inside are made of white melamine.
Production Times Match the Desk
When you’re creating a solid wood product of this caliber (for the solid wood version, of course), there’s no way to rush the process. Ideally ordered at the same time as the desk for the ideal match in grain and stain tone, production takes about six weeks in iMovR’s Michigan plant where all their solid wood products are fabricated. The credenza is shipped fully factory pre-assembled, by freight, to your door (included in the price). If ordered together with a Lander or Lander Lite solid wood desk, the Credenza will co-ship.
Rounding Out Your Office
iMovR makes the most expansive line of American hand-crafted luxury executive desks, for which complementary accent pieces like this are essential.
We’ve also learned that iMovR is planning several more large accessory pieces, such as book cases, etageres, and wall-mounted whiteboard cabinets to completely round-out the “collections.”
If you’ve got the coin to invest in one of iMovR’s premium or luxury standing desks, you’re probably inclined to get the matching accessory items to tie the room together beautifully. At a starting price of $3,290 (varies by species) the solid wood credenza is not inexpensive, but still well cheaper than having a custom cabinet maker attempt to build something to match your desk.
Unlike iMovR’s solid wood file cabinets, there really isn’t anything to compare the credenza to being offered by competitors. We look forward with anticipation to other large matching pieces in the 3D-laminate and solid wood collections. This sort of coordinated look was previously only available from furniture makers that didn’t make anything height-adjustable, so it’s refreshing to see the standing desk or sit-stand meeting table become the office centerpiece from an interior design standpoint.
