Even better, they make it all at a great price without sacrificing anything in the way of looks, durability, or craftsmanship. They're an emerging power in the modern and contemporary American Furniture market, and Smart Furniture is excited to offer their products to our customers through our online store. Buy your own amazing Blue Dot furniture today!<br /><br />Since their inception, Blu Dot has had a fun and fascinating aesthetic. When you see one of their products, you can often recognize it immediately as one of their designs. They believe in modern looks, crisp clean lines, solid colors, and beautiful construction. Everything they make comes from the contemporary, fresh perspectives of their designers, and the furniture they're making is really turning heads in the design community. <br /><br />Smart Furniture has partnered with Blu Dot for the last several years in yet another attempt to bring great ideas, great designs, and great furniture to our customers online. Blu Dot furniture is some of the best around; it's modern, it's comfortable, and it's very affordable. We're proud to partner with them for many reasons, but none bigger than those three. They believe in the same things we do, and they make amazing furniture for the contemporary home and office. They're relatively new, having been founded just 13 years ago, but in a little over a decade they've made a profound and lasting impression on the modern American furniture market. Whether you're looking for tables, desks, chairs, lighting, storage, or any other kind of home, office and public space furniture, you can find what you're looking for in the catalogue of Blu Dot furniture.<br /><br />Blu Dot was a business born of necessity, just like ours here at Smart Furniture. We first opened our doors because we wanted to give customers access to the products they were buying; we wanted them to have a say in the design of their own furniture, aka, design on demand. Blu Dot furniture has a similar philosophy, and they're focused on excellence and affordability. All of the furniture they make comes from the same original, inspiring idea, the idea that started the company; beautiful furniture, and beautiful design, should be attainable. It's that simple, and that revolutionary. <br /><br />The company was founded by three college friends who were freshly graduated and ready to move into new homes and apartments. In college they had all bonded over their mutual interests in design, architecture and artwork. When they were ready to start their own homes, naturally they wanted to outfit them in a way that reflected their ideas, their tastes and their advanced notions about design and personal space. But there was a problem; they couldn't afford the great furniture they loved, and they didn't like the low-quality or big-box furniture that they could afford. For many customers, this is a very familiar dilemma. But the three friends decided to do something about it. They decided if there was no supplier for their fairly common demands, then they would have to make the furniture themselves. And that's how they came to form Blu Dot. <br /><br />In the years since the company was founded, in 1997, the three friends, John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks, have gone on to create some of the most comfortable, innovative, and beautiful modern furniture on the contemporary American scene. Blu Dot furniture is just as lovely and well designed as any other modern furniture maker, and the business has stayed true to it's initial imperative; to keep the furniture amazing and the prices low. They created elegant desks, funky chairs and seating options, cool lighting systems and decor. And to top it all off, they made it affordable. That solved the problem they'd had right after college, when their taste level was much higher than their income level. Business born of necessity; just like Smart Furniture. <br /><br />Blu Dot has mastered the art of making affordable furniture that never looks cheap and that can boast levels of craftsmanship and aesthetic excellence measuring up the standards of any furniture maker in the business. Like Smart Furniture pieces, Blu Dot furniture is heavy on quality and low on cost. It's a business and a whole system of furniture that believes in democratic design, and in serving the customer first and foremost. Beautiful design shouldn't be the sole province of museums and high income Americans, it should be available to everyone at a reasonable price. Blu Dot furniture believes that, and so do we at Smart Furniture; that's why we make such great partners, and that's why we're so happy to bring you the whole roster of amazing Blu Dot furniture online.</span>

Chicago Media Center
by Blu Dot

Chicago Media Center At A Glance:
Sometimes good design is about what's not there. The Chicago Series puts negative space to artful use, and this Media Center is no exception. This TV stand is designed to hold up to a 42" flat screen and three components in the central shelf. Store books or media in the towers, while cord control keeps things tidy in the back.

The Chicago Media Center was one of the earliest pieces designed by Blu Dot, and it certainly has staying power. The fact that this entertainment center is beautiful and functional makes it an excellent choice for your media equipment. The neutral finishes of the wood blend well with any color scheme, allowing you to insert this piece into any decor.

What's To Like:
If there was ever an artful way to display a television set, the Chicago Media Center is it. A full 8' wide and full of air and block shelves, this entertainment center is all about showcasing space.

What's Not to Like:
This is for large jobs only. This is one wide media center, and you'll need to have 8' of wall space to accommodate it. If you've got the space, it's a winner - but it can overwhelm smaller spaces.

The Bottom Line:
This is one of the rare entertainment centers that don't just help to organize and display your media equipment; it can become the focal point of an entire room. The Chicago Media Center adds interest where other media consoles fall short. Available in maple, graphite-on-oak and cherry.

Features:

  • Overall dimensions: 37" h x 96.25" w x 22" d
  • Media center section: 24" h x 52" w x 22" d
  • Wood veneer over MDF
  • Powder-coated tubular steel legs
  • Glides protect your floor

  • Q:

    Can the smaller boxes be restacked so that instead of two and two on each side, it could be three and one? Also, what is the weight limit for unit? Thanks.

      A:

      Unfortunately no, the smaller boxes can't be restacked as you suggest. The reason is because the poles are packed and arrive the lengths you see shown. The manufacturer does not have tested weight bearing capacities, but from our experience it can hold whatever you put on it (with the exception of your gold bar collection).
