I designed this entertainment center to be placed in the corner of a living room. I started the design process with the idea of a natural curve to the shelf that follows the 90 degree corner of the room. I added the black back part for support of the shelf, but also to support a TV. The upper part of the black unit can be removed if needed, so from an entertainment center it could easily transform into a corner unit with a storage shelf.
The black veneer creates contrast, not just in color, but also in the texture of the wood grain versus the white smoothness of the shelf, which is made of painted plywood.
I chose to finish the inside of the white storage space in bright red glossy paint to bring some additional color to the piece as a whole. The red is visible only when the cover is open. When the space is closed there is a small inch wide red ribbon around the edges, which doesn’t distract from the contrast. The shelf is enclosed by black Plexiglass.
I also made enough holes at the bottom for ventilation of the enclosed equipment. Further, the back of the shelf is open to help with the ventilation and to allow for the cables from the enclosed equipment to reach the TV and remain hidden.
This is a picture of the entertainment center in an actual room. As with all my designs I believe that the piece could be a part of a modern and stark interior design, but also could work in a contemporary if not traditional room
