Entertainment Centers: Blending Form and Function in Furniture (Part 1)

Our custom furniture pieces are so special and impressive that they are frequently used as centerpieces in the homes in which they find themselves. What better usage for a centerpiece than as a focal point like an entertainment center. Either for your family, or for entertaining guests, your custom centerpiece can be stocked with television and audio equipment to please anyone and fit into any home.

Below is a sampling of some of the entertainment centers that our furniture makers have built for clients. There are so many great ones to choose from, we couldn’t fit them all in one blog post (watch for our second blog with more)!

First up is this Walnut Three Drawer Entertainment Center by Bob Gasperetti. The walnut used in the piece is highly figured and bookmatched, so the character of the doors is mirrored. This one is perfect for the bedroom, housing both a 36″ TV and audio equipment, and like many of the pieces in this feature, has openings in the back to allow for cooling and for the electronic wires to pass through.

This Corner TV Cabinet by Paul Donio was designed to imitate the New England tradition of the corner cupboard and is in soft maple with solid brass hardware. It features a faux finish to look like tiger maple with a walnut stain. The shelves inside are adjustable to fit any size entertainment equipment you have.

This Barn Board Cabinet by Joe Breznick is so named because it was made from panels of antique barn wood that were milk painted and framed in poplar with seedy glass doors. The cabinet itself houses the components and a television can go on top, making it a bit of a different design than the others.

Next is the classic Deacon Media Cabinet in Cherry by Doug Clarner. With multiple large compartments, some open and some that can close, this cabinet is multipurpose, allowing for your entertainment needs and more.

Below is the gorgeous Kas Style TV Cabinet in Antiques Maple and Walnut by Dan Mosheim. This one was designed specifically to “conceal” a television. The idea was to maintain the classic look of the home while still housing modern amenities, and this piece totally nails it!

And the final piece in this installment is another by Paul Donio, a Cherry Shaker-Style Entertainment Center, which can house all of your entertainment needs.

That’s it for part one. Check back soon for even more useful and beautiful entertainment centers that can make great centerpieces for your home.
