Entertaining Living Rooms

Catch the Big Game on a Big Screen

manhattan-3pc-entertainmentwall_v1While nothing quite replaces the thrill of watching a game in person, today’s TV and sound technology can create a viewing experience that comes in a close second. With ultra high-definition technology offering four times the clarity of full high-def, the colors are brighter and the details are sharper. You’ll see every bead of sweat come off of Jimmy Butler’s forehead and can count the stitches on Paul George’s jersey when the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers square off. With a flat panel TV entertainment center, you can bring the arena into your living room.

An entertainment center offers a home for all of your entertainment equipment: TV, DVD player, Apple TV, Roku, gaming system, stereo system, DVDs, CDs and games. That’s a lot of equipment (not to mention all of their cords and extra accessories). An entertainment center should support your TV size and offer both open and closed shelving: open shelving for remote-controlled equipment such as DVD players and closed shelving or drawers for whatever you want to hide, such as cords, controllers and manuals. Some may even want the option of hiding the TV behind cabinet doors when not in use.

The set includes a TV console for a 60” TV with open shelving and two closed-door cabinets and a pass-through hole to hide unsightly cords. The console is flanked by two bookcases with five shelves each and both are topped with matching antique slate moldings.

The tobacco finish with hand sawn weathered distressing makes this piece unique and rustic, while the powder coated metal frame adds an industrial vibe. The console can accommodate up to a 78” TV and provides drawers on a ball bearing glide system underneath for easy storage, with open shelving for electronics. The two open bookcases are the perfect place to display valuables, plants, books and other decorative items.

wesley-6pc_v1When you really can’t miss a second of a game, you need an entertainment center that also keeps your drinks cold and your feet warm. The Wesley 6 piece entertainment center comes with everything you’d expect of an entertainment center plus a fireplace insert and two beverage coolers. The firebox with fireplace insert heats a room up to 1000 square feet. What’s more, it plugs into a standard, 3-prong grounded outlet — no venting or gas lines necessary — and is remote-controlled. The TV is flanked by a quiet, vibration-free beverage cooler tower on one side and a wine cooler with 18-bottle capacity on the other side. Glass cases atop the beverage coolers are a handy place to store barware or decorative items. With adjustable shelves and interior LED touch lighting, you can customize your storage options.

Creating a clean, organized entertainment center is getting easier by the year as smart TV technology has eliminated the need for extra equipment like cable boxes, stereos, and DVD players. With Smart TV technology, users can stream the full range of media content directly to their TVs via a WiFi connection. Smart TVs with Ultra High-Definition picture brings the viewing experience to life, and wireless soundbars and subwoofers can create surround sound worthy of a movie theater. With an entertainment center like that, your friends will feel like they have courtside seats when they come over to watch the Bulls or the Pacers.
