TV still on the wall? That's so last year

Make a statement with a stand made of wenge wood

As cool as it looks in commercials, the idea of mounting a small fortune's worth of television on a wall pretty much scares us to death. Especially in earthquake country.

Wenge TV stand

A saner alternative might be the Wenge TV Hi-Fi stand from high-end furniture dealer Anora Home, which is both practical and a tasteful addition to your decor. It takes its name from wenge wood, a distinct variety from Africa known for its use in such exotic creations as custom-made guitars and collector knife handles.

The TV itself is wedged between two boards of wenge, fixed on a base of aluminum and frosted glass. Around the edges is space reserved for DVDs, CDs, or a tumbler of 18-year-old Macallan. This thing is sounding better all the time.
