Entertainment Sets That Balance Technology and Style

Bree here, from Home Zone Furniture.

In this day and age, technology in the home makes our lives easier in myriad ways. From smart thermostats to tablets that hold all our favorite recipes, home technology increases efficiency and saves time.

That being said, one of my biggest pet peeves is when home decor falls victim to the necessities of the modern day. A television takes the place of a well-styled mantel, or unsightly cords clutter up an otherwise spotless room. While these are common conundrums everyone faces today, the Home Zone Furniture collection offers a selection of entertainment sets sure to make your home both stylish and functional.


For the empty zone behind the sofa, try the Zanders sofa table. This thin table fits comfortably into a variety of spaces and is unassuming yet beautiful, with rich birch veneer and natural slate mosaic inlay. Use the shelf underneath to keep the remote and extra cords out of view, yet easily accessible. Leave the top surface empty to hold the drinks and snacks that are sure to make an appearance once the TV comes on!


Stay organized with the Bonnie Black TV console. This sturdy black console offers a number of shelves to store extra DVDs, CDs and accompanying hardware. By closing the doors, you’ll keep the interior neat, tidy and under control, but you’ll still be able to see the contents from afar. With its clean lines and simple hardware, the Bonnie Console is an ideal addition to the contemporary home.


Update a traditional bedroom with the Condor TV stand. The Condor has the look and feel of traditional furniture with its rich wood finish and classic structure, but it’s built with a modern sensibility. Use the power port to charge everything from your smartphone to your iPad, and the drawers to tuck away remotes, disks or even extra clothing you’ve run out of room for. You’ll love not only the slick metallic drawer pulls, but also how easily and quietly the drawers open and close.


Complement a rustic home with the Seattle TV stand. This weathered-looking stand is nicely crafted from ash veneers and pine wood solids, ensuring both strength and style. Store gadget and non-gadget items inside the drawers, which open and close easily with ball bearing glides. One of my favorite aspects of the Seattle TV stand is the built-in power port, which allows you to keep all of your electronics together and eliminates the appearance of cords. The Seattle TV stand would work nicely in a bedroom, but could also be placed in a small-scale living room as well.


Create the ultimate home entertainment center with the Clyde Merlot TV console. This impressive structure offers a series of cabinets for all of your TV-watching needs, and leaves sufficient space overhead to add personal styled vignettes. By taking advantage of the overhead nooks, you’ll find that the Clyde Merlot Console can be incorporated into a wide variety of home styles, from contemporary to traditional. In my experience, incorporating other objects aside from TV-related items into the shelves of the Console disguises the technological presence and maintains the style of your home.
