Why a Media Unit?

We all have a TV; well the majority of us, but it’s not always that easy to know where to put them. Unless you have the luxury of a large wall space to fix them to. Without a large open wall space a media unit becomes a must have piece of furniture.

Actually obtaining a TV or media unit that not only serves its purpose but suits the style of your room is often easier said than done.  That’s why we have a wide range of different style TV and media units to suit every individual taste.

Plank

Able to accommodate a substantial size wide screen TV and media accessories the Plank media unit is a fabulous alternative to a modern contemporary style media unit.

The ‘Tahoe’ collection showcases a distressed paint finish with natural wood top.  A great space saver while visually keeping all those essential gadgets neat and tidy in one place with it’s two door design.

French Country

A combination of drawers and adjustable shelves means that this piece offers a vast amount of storage space. There is plenty of room to house a good size TV, along with a range of media equipment.

Brocante

The-Orchard-Brocante-TV-Unit

The Brocante media unit is a perfect example proving that you don’t have to opt for a contemporary unit to store your media accessories.

The ‘Brocante’ style is far more traditional but offers modern practical storage solutions.

Each piece in the Brocante range, including this one, is made from scratch before going through a very skilled paint process.  The paint process is finished by ageing and distressing the piece to give a unique worn look.  Holes exist to the rear of the cabinets for all of your cabling.

Mariner

The-Orchard-Mariner-TV-Unit

Predominantly crafted from reclaimed boat wood each piece of the ‘Mariner’ collection has it’s own individual character and colouring. This characterful wood is then framed in aged iron with rounded legs. The unique sourcing of the Mariner collection means that no two pieces are ever the same.

The Mariner collection is extremely strong having been tested during years at sea and then kiln dried for 15 days prior to assembly.

Paint flecks, wood cracks and small holes and natural imperfections are all key features of this charming rustic collection.

As a focal point in a contemporary or vintage style setting or a fitting piece in a loft style apartment this collection really is a thing of natural up-cycled beauty.

Driftwood

The-Orchard-Drift-TV-Unit

Our ‘Drift’ collection is left very natural embracing bare wood in a functional piece to suit the style of a rustic home.

Roadie

The wood is finished with a reliant satin lacquer to create a hard wearing surface while emphasising the natural character in the timber.

The metal frame is created from reinforced aluminium giving structural rigidity and an urban edge.

A key feature of the Roadie collection is the chunky wheels attached to each finished piece for ease of movement but more importantly as a distinctive style feature making each piece something different.

Exceptional build quality, designed to last a lifetime.

Shoreditch

The-Orchard-Media-Unit-Shoreditch
