Contemporary Entertainment and Display Cabinet

The Space: A recently constructed great room consisting of two dining areas, a large seating area and a new kitchen.

The Need: To design and build a contemporary entertainment and display cabinet that met several purposes: general open and closed storage, a home for a new flat screen TV with room for various peripherals, CDs and DVDs, lit display for the clients’ pottery and space for serving food when entertaining.

The Solution: InHouse designed a long contemporary entertainment and display cabinet with a solid mahogany base and two rectangular protruding volumes dramatically sheathed in Hot Mottled Makore wood. One horizontal volume houses all the entertainment equipment while a smaller vertical cabinet (partially shown to the left of Photo E5) displays the pottery. The play between the protruding volumes, their active veneer, and the mahogany base (which provides additional storage) offers a welcome rhythm along the formerly bare wall of this rather wide new room. Electrical and wire management needs were addressed as well.
