Novia 8428 TV Stand by BDI
designed by Matthew Weatherly
At A Glance:
Novia may appear to have the traditional styling of a classic piece of furniture, but a closer look reveals a wealth of unexpected innovation. The BDI Novia media center modernizes this simple design with features that include hidden wheels to ease cabinet movement and facilitate access to the back, cable management to keep your home theater neat and organized, and integrated ventilation to keep your components operating at peak levels. This TV stand builds on great ideas from the past to create a unit that is as beautiful as it is functional.
The Novia TV Stand's top shelf holds up to 150 lbs, and the interior shelves provide more than enough strength for your consoles, 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: Novia 8428 holds flat panel TVs up to 55".
What's To Like:
This TV stand is tall enough to put in a bedroom (about table-height), with a top compartment dedicated to the speaker system you've always wished wasn't just sitting on top of your TV bench. It's got room for a center channel speaker and two side speakers, with an internal slot for your game system or DVDs.
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 - but it's still pricey.
The Bottom Line:
The Novia TV Stand is a multi-functional media cabinet that is well-suited for anyone who wants the TV to be at a higher level and has components and a speaker system to conceal. With its built-in game system compartment, it's great at keeping your media room looking clean.
