The Latest Television Console Trends

Posted on

It’s no secret that the television as we know it is changing. Gone are the days of the bulky television with a small screen; today, the average television is thin with a big screen and less expensive than ever. That isn’t the only breakthrough, though. On the contrary: today’s TVs are starting to curve!

Thanks to the amazing advancements in technology, screens are now flexible. Manufacturers such as Samsung, Sony, etc. have new televisions that allow users to ‘flex’ their television from flat (i.e. the way your standard LCD flat panel television looks) to curved with one touch of a button. Supposedly, this creates a more immersive experience for viewers (though the jury is still out at the moment). What the jury is not out on is this: curved televisions are the next big trend in television technology – and it’s creating new, television console trends in the process.

Thinking about purchasing a curved television (or a typical, flat TV), but need to update your television console? Below are a few of the latest TV console trends you need to keep an eye out for. After all, if you are going to purchase a new, trendy television, it’s essential to compliment it with a trendy television console as well!

Wall mounts/TV racks

There are beautiful television consoles that feature a television rack raised slightly above the shelves of the console.

One of the biggest trends in television consoles happens to be the absence of a console altogether! Especially when it comes to curved television early adopters, many are proclaiming that the best way to display your television is by mounting it to the wall by wall of a full-motion mount. This allows you to swivel the television left to right and at different angles.

For those that need to have storage space for their television accessories (e.g. Blu-ray player, game consoles, etc.), merely mounting that new television to the wall simply isn’t an option. Luckily, there are beautiful television consoles that feature a television rack raised slightly above the shelves of the console. Thus, this allows users to mount their television almost identically in the same way one could mount a television to the wall, yet provides the user with the benefits of a television console. It’s truly the best of both worlds for those that prefer their television to be mounted rather than standing.

Curved television stand

Complete with curved layers of glass, these stands allow the television and console to feel like one.

On the other hand, those that prefer to leave their television standing instead of mounting it are also in luck – and just like the latest televisions, these stands are also curved. Television console trends have always reflected the latest trends in television technology – and this latest trend further proves the point. Just like curved televisions can curve inward at the touch of a button, so too do the latest television stands. Complete with curved layers of glass, these stands allow the television and console to feel like one, complete unit. It’ll look amazing in your home, so if you’re a ‘stander,’ that needs to have a curved television in your life, this is one television console you have to have!

Less wood, more glass, all curved

Like the thought of a curving television console, yet you would prefer glass? No problem! Another trend among curved television consoles features consoles that are made primarily of glass and only a small amount of wood (usually sitting atop the console where the television stands). Elegant and beautiful, the curved glass of this console looks stunning – and is a perfect choice when choosing a new, trendy television stand!

Decorating With Walnut Furniture

Walnut furniture is all the rage right now – and for good reason. Walnut furniture is both strong and durable, yet it has a flexible nature to it. Able to be carved in roughly any shape (with the ability to hold its shape well), it’s no wonder so many people are head over heels for walnut furniture right now. Yet, how can you decorate with it and use it to bring out the best in your spaces? We’re glad you asked. Below is everything you need to know when it comes to implementing walnut into your spaces.

The bedroom

One of the spaces where walnut furniture truly shines is the bedroom. There’s something very classy about walking into a bedroom that encompasses the utter beauty of walnut furniture. Whether you want a headboard that encompasses a dark, walnut finish or a dresser that has a lighter appearance, there’s something timeless about the look of walnut furniture. Plus, it’s one of the most durable woods you can buy. Want your furniture to last for years to come? Then consider purchasing furniture made with walnut veneer!

What do we mean when we talk about furniture that is made with walnut veneer? Simply put, walnut furniture is almost never true, solid walnut – meaning that the furniture usually utilizes walnut veneer to some extent. Walnut furniture that contains 100% walnut material is simply too expensive to build.

Thus, one of the most cost-effective methods to building walnut furniture is to cover it with a walnut veneer to give the impression that the furniture is indeed built from walnut. However, the best type of furniture crafted using walnut veneer will still be built using high-quality wood – complete with veneer that will not buckle or separate from the rest of the furniture. Because our walnut furniture is built from only the sturdiest types of wood, we urge you to visit our showroom so we can show you how amazing furniture built with a walnut veneer can look in your home!
