In this installation, the focal wall featured a window that the client did not want covered by a TV. However, they did want a large screen TV viewing experience, without the TV dominating the space. Our solution was to propose a cabinet with a motorized TV lift, so that the TV would automatically disappear when not in use.
This installation features a Touchstone Monterey TV lift cabinet. We like the Touchstone products because they offer a variety of cabinetry styles with built-in motorized TV lifts. They are a great alternative to custom cabinetry and offer a custom look at a fraction of the price of custom millwork. Our client chose this specific cabinet because it is a distinctive solid wood cabinet that balances crisp lines with a rich espresso finish to compliment a variety of decorating tastes. This heirloom-quality cabinet with quiet, smooth electro-mechanical lift accommodates plasma and LCD TVs up to 55″ wide by 32.5″ tall. It features solid birch with espresso veneers with inset wood panels.
We installed a 50″ Samsung flatscreen TV, and combined it with a high quality stereo sound system. The sound system features Paradigm bookshelf speakers and powered subwoofer, along with an Integra receiver. All of the components and the subwoofer are hidden inside of the cabinetry. Of course, the system includes a simple universal remote control that allows the client to operate the system with the cabinet doors closed. By using the motorized lift system we were able to deliver an excellent audio/video experience that virtually disappears when not in use.
