Australian Story - The Hardworking TV Unit
Welcome back to the Lifestyle Files, where this week we are taking a look at one of the most under appreciated yet hardworking pieces of furniture in the modern home, the TV Unit.
Whether you are a tv junkie who inhales whole seasons of Netflix in one sitting or you just like to watch the news while making dinner, the TV unit is a crucial piece in your living space. Year after year it toils, holding up that television, standing straight and looking great for millions of Aussies night after night. But it’s more than just a stand for your television, it’s an integral part of a living room furniture collection, and at best, can be a feature of the living room.
As massive fans of the tv unit, we have been trying for years to get it nominated for Australian of the Year, but alas, we have had no luck. The least we could do was a great blog post focused on the beauty, strength and lifting skills of the strong and silent custom WA made TV unit.
Classic, Classy and All Local - Totally Timber TV Unit
As with most furniture, especially WA made furniture, it’s hard to go wrong with a tv unit made from all timber. Local to WA, marri timber is as popular as ever and will always result in a unique piece, as no two pieces of marri are alike. The gum veins throughout ensure your marri tv unit will be one of a kind. Our Wembley Lowline TV Unit is a lovely example of an all timber TV unit handcrafted from WA marri timber, seen below.
White Always Wins - White with Timber TV Unit
As it has at many times in history of interior design, white rarely fails as a colour option in furniture. Adding satin white drawers to a beautiful timber frame like we have on our Tribeca Lowline TV Unit below adds a bright, clean element to a lovely timber tv unit.
Flip The Script - White Outside with Timber Drawers
A modern option as shown here on our Venus TV Unit installed in a customer’s home below is timber veneer doors with a satin white frame. This is beauty of WA made furniture, all options, heights, widths, timbers and veneers are all on the cards.
Timber + Steel = Great!
To add an industrial touch to your TV unit, add steel like we have to our Cottesloe Lowline TV Unit. Combined with Marri as we have below, or Tasmanian Oak or jarrah, steel is extremely popular and gives a warehouse or loft feel to your space.
