Yorkshire House To Introduce Antique Chest With Hidden Plasma TV In High Point
Furniture World News
The #9916 Television Chest, which will debut next week at the International Home Furnishings Market, exemplifies Yorkshire House’s commitment to combining the best of Old World craftsmanship and style with contemporary function for today’s home.
What appears to be an antique chest of drawers actually serves as a cabinet for a flat-screen plasma TV. Centered in the case, the screen emerges and retreats electronically by remote control through the hinged cabinet top. Apparent drawers actually open as doors, providing abundant room for audio-visual components and DVD storage.
Featuring elegant walnut burl veneer in a rich antique distressed finished, this Television Chest is 59”wide x 42 3/4”high x 23 3/4”deep. Suggested retail: $15,521.
“Based on designers’ reactions to sneak previews, we are confident this piece is going to be a big hit at market and enjoy a long run with our customers,” said Michael Beaver, president. “Preserving an antique look while offering contemporary function, especially relating to today’s home entertainment technology, is a direct response to our customers’ requests.”
The Yorkshire House product line features English antique reproductions handcrafted in England. The line represents England’s most celebrated antique styles: Georgian, Jacobean, Regency, Victorian, Edwardian, George II and George III, for example. The High Point-based company has assembled a consortium of England’s most respected cabinetmakers, and each piece has been crafted entirely and meticulously by hand in England.
