Novia Triple-Wide Home Theater Cabinet by BDI
designed by Matthew Weatherly
At A Glance:
The Novia may appear to have the traditional styling of a classic piece of furniture, but once you look a bit deeper you will see that it is full of some unexpected innovations. Novia 8429-2 modernizes this simple design with features that include hidden wheels for easy access to the back, wire management to keep your home theater neat and organized, and integrated ventilation to keep your components operating at peak levels. Novia builds on great ideas from the past to create a unit that is as beautiful as it is functional. Recommended TV size of up to a 70" flat panel or rear-projection TV.
The Novia Triple-Wide TV Console's top shelf holds up to 150 lbs, and the interior shelves provide more than enough strength for your components, unless you plan on stacking gold bricks inside. If you do, please take a picture so we can all enjoy the sight of massive amounts of gold in a TV stand.
Recommended TV size: the Novia Triple-Wide Home Theater Cabinet holds flat panel TVs up to 82".
What's To Like:
This TV stand is low, sized for larger TVs and wider spaces at 74" wide, and features enough space inside for all your components. It's got IR-friendly glass so you'll never need to open the doors to change channels or skip scenes on a DVD.
What's Not to Like:
While Novia does many things well, it's an expensive solution. We think it's worth the money, with its superb functionality and good looks - but it's still pricey.
The Bottom Line:
The Novia Triple-Wide TV Cabinet is a multi-functional media cabinet that is well-suited for anyone with a large space who wants to conceal components without losing use of the remote control.
