Media Storage

Rigby Media Console

What’s that price tag doing on such a modern media console? And it can be mounted directly on the wall without the base, thus bringing the price down to $999? Hmm, perhaps we need to consider where it could live in our own homes. I especially like the option of the wall mount version, as it could be hung at any height and do the job of an entryway console or dining area buffet.

Prime Media Console

Hmm, this media console by Mark Daniel (of Slate Design) has the right sort of look and the right sort of price. Plantation-grown shesham wood is set off nicely by an iron base, and there’s the nice detail of a finished back in case you need to float the piece in the middle of a room. Two open shelves provide space for components with two drawers below for storage. And, yes, don’t worry, there are cutouts for managing cords.

Heartwork Media Credenza with Legs

Here’s a media credenza that happily fits the bill of a not-so-big budget with an uncompromising I-refuse-to-buy-anything-else-from-Ikea ideology. There’s a full-length adjustable shelf and it has cord management holes inside and through to the bottom to allow the credenza to float within a room if desired.

Aura Media Unit

Hello, hello. With such a stream-lined look, it’s a relief that this media unit is under the $2G price point (even if only just). Let’s get to the important stuff: Super sleek look? Check. Adequate storage space? Check. Cord management/escapes? Check. Sturdiness? Craftsmanship? Could handle a freaking huge flat screen? Check, check, and check. Choose between walnut or oak wood.

Wave Cabinet

Whoa, do you see all the decorative hand-carving on this cabinet? Maybe you shy away from embellishment on your larger pieces of furniture, but I find myself drawn towards the details. Made by the company Manulution and designed by Salih Teskeredzic, each cabinet is made from solid European wood (walnut and cherry logs are bought directly from villagers in Bosnia) and is produced in two versions: one with a spindly stainless steel base and the other with wheels. Read more about the company’s history on Manulution’s website.

Shilf Modular Shelving System

Modular shelving? For real? Yes, it’s true, and I do have to say these look great in person, so you have my personal nod of approval. This set certainly isn’t new, as we first posted it years ago, but it’s worth remembering if you’re in the market for a storage system. The Shilf System allows for custom configurations without tools or hardware- you heard me right, no tools or hardware. You can buy the components individually or purchase a set, either way, you’ll have some great shelves that are easy to put together and easy to alter should your storage needs change.

Framework Credenza

Still on the search for media storage? Join the club. If your budget is around the $500-$700 range, you could do a whole lot worse than this credenza. It won’t take care of tidying your cables for you, but it sure does have plenty of space for all manner of receivers, DVRs, and other such gadgets. The sleek iron frame with acacia wood planks are easy on the eyes as well.

Symbol Record Storage Cabinet

If you’ve refused to surrender your record collection (or CD collection, for that matter), you’ll be overjoyed to see this series from Symbol Audio. The LPC series is made specifically for housing vinyls, and each “hopper” drawer swivels open to show up to 160 records. You can choose between a few sizes depending on your collection (and budget), with or without drawers sized for holding CDs. Each piece is bench-made to order in West Virginia, so you’ll have to wait around 4-6 weeks, but that’s nothing compared to not having the perfect storage piece.

Heavy Stock

Flat packable shelving usually brings to mind heavy boxes and a fair amount of cursing during assembly. In contrast, this low shelving system by Calen Knauf has no heavy wood composite pieces and looks pretty simple to put together. The Heavy Stock has super thin steel shelves with maple legs that ensure stability with little visual weight. And, bonus points: you can arrange the pieces in an infinite array of configurations.

Line Media Console

This media console strikes a nice balance between function and aesthetics. The louvered front allows a remote control to operate the devices inside while shielding the messy cords and visual clutter. The wider 70″ version is shown above, but there’s also a 35″ option for smaller spaces.

Soorikian Long Console

Finding a modern media stand is no easy task. I know this personally, of course, and am quite familiar with the many requirements needed to house those precious electronic boxes that magic images up on the tv screen. Dimensions, ventilation, wire management, and above all, how it looks… all these things are important. So, that’s why this console caught my eye. It’s certainly easy on the eyes, with a lovely walnut finish and a low profile, with slats to allow for ventilation (and visual interest). The compartments can be fitted with a drawer or a space specifically for electronics.

Walnut finish.
84″ L x 19.75″ H x 18″ D
Pricing around $3,800.00.

Cork Media Console

We’ve been fans of Iannone Design for quite some time now, so it’s no surprise that this low storage unit would eventually have its turn in the spotlight. Just under 2 feet, it’s low enough to fit a good sized flat screen above or on it without sacrificing a reasonable viewing height, and the cork doors and plywood core edges add just the right amount of natural elements to balance out the tech.

Two compartments (each with an adjustable shelf) and wire/vent holes in the maple back.

Designer/Manufacturer: Iannone Design
Material: Amber bamboo/cork/maple plywood.
70″l x 20″d x 23.5″h

Indie Furniture

Indie Furniture certainly has hit a lot of the right targets with their new customizable furniture. Rather than selling a completed product, Indie Furniture provides universal shelving joints that ultimately require you to put together yourself with your own provided wood. The benefit of this is that you can customize your shelving to your exact needs, use any type of wood you desire, save a whole lot on shipping, and enjoy the task of putting together your own set of furniture. Customization is done through their online configurator which tells you final dimensions, how many connectors are needed, the cost of the connectors, and how many wood panels are needed—all in one convenient PDF! Brilliant I’d say.
