There are many new types of TV furniture being launched onto the market, you only have to look at a free web directory to see what we mean, the level of competition in this new furniture market is fierce and manufacturers are constantly looking for ways to get one up on their competitors. Techlink have produced the funky Opod and Ovid series of TV stands which would not look out of place in an Austin Powers movie, but the retro design has become very popular in funky town houses and flats. One of the most remarkable TV stands I have seen is a TV stand with a built in fireplace, this TV cabinet has a funky electric fire built into the lower compartment, I don't know how that would affect AV equipment and if the cabinet is designed to provide cooling to the equipment but it is certainly a novel idea and a unique product.
Other manufacturers like Salamander Designs TV Cabinets combine traditional styling with powerful modern features for use with high quality AV equipment, in a contrary manner to the above TV stand Salamander Designs do everything they can to keep the cabinet interior cool with an active cooling system which has it's own thermostat. Jahnke are a German manufacturer of TV furniture and they have released the highly inventive Luxor range of TV cabinets and media walls, some of these have built in speaker systems to provide an all in one home theatre solution.
