A little more than 4 years ago, I purchased a Howard Miller entertainment center similar to the one pictured below. I love the traditional style that blends well with the transitional pieces I own. I also look for furniture that is made in the USA (which the majority of Howard Miller items are). But what I REALLY love about it is its storage capacity.
I am amazed at the amount of “stuff” that the entertainment center holds: CDs, DVDs, VHS, books, knick-knacks, everything. All of my components (cable box, DVR, etc.) fit very comfortably behind the doors, and the glass means that my remote controls work easily without needing any special aim. The baskets are great for storing less attractive items such as gaming systems and their controls. Decorative boxes that match my décor are stacked behind the glass to disguise other items I don’t need displayed. Most importantly, my TV looks great on top of it!
The Howard Miller Custom TV Consoles and Home Storage (formerly known as “Ty Pennington Collection”) are available in a vast array of styles and seven different finishes. Door styles and hardware are also changeable. If you have a storage challenge in your home, I would highly recommend this line.
