A Retractable TV, Now You See It… Now You Don’t

January 14th, 2010 by Peggy Farabaugh

Retractable tv

This is a contemporary new media center we’re introducing for 2010.  It’s our Retractable, Pop-up TV console. By day it’s just a beautiful, oval shaped media cabinet.

But at night (or whenever you’re inclined to watch TV) grab the remote control and automatically raise your flat screen TV up to the top of it to enjoy watching your favorite programs in futuristic style.  Way cool!

Tambour Doors TV
Do you know what tambour doors are?  Remember the old roll-top desk?
Well this TV console has tambour doors that curve around the sides of
the piece, revealing storage cubbies in the front.

Check it out!


A New Curved TV-Media Center

October 12th, 2009 by Peggy Farabaugh

I've never seen a TV-media center quite like this before.  What do you think?  I love the curves and the sliding tambour doors.  It seems very modern and clean.  You can customize it with a glass door in front so your remote controls will work.  Or choose an even tidier look by ordering wooden doors that pull together completely, hiding all signs of electronics and media.

If your TV room design is all straight lines this might be just the ticket to add warmth and soften it up!


Buying Custom Furniture Online: Customers Get Creative

October 8th, 2009 by Peggy Farabaugh


We're working with a customer who's shopping online for a large custom entertainment center.  He saw our Vermont Made Shaker Entertainment Center on our website and it was pretty close to the style he and his wife were looking for. 

It's funny… everybody has their own feelings about ordering furniture online.  Some customers prefer to order online because it's convenient and they have so many choices.  Others really need to see it, feel it and maybe sit in before buying.

But lots of customers are finding a middle ground in interesting and creative ways.  This customer (a fellow woodworker, as so many of our customers are) is making a cardboard mock-up of the TV-Media Center so he and his wife can see how it will fit in their home.  We're working on the dimensions now, adding a few inches here and there to accommodate his flat screen TV.  He'll adjust his mock-up as we do this, until the size and proportions are exactly right for their TV, AV and media.  Then we'll get started on crafting the real thing.

What strategies do you use to help shore up your confidence in buying furniture online?  I hope you'll share them with us!
