Big TVs are here to stay!
The golden age of exceptional TV programming is upon us. As our thirst for binge watching increases so too do the screens of our home TVs. And so it follows that our extra-large loveable leviathans must have extra-long TV units upon which to sit. So, after an influx of customer requests to provide beautifully designed bespoke long tv units in real wood, Ben set to work create a new addition to the Blue Island range, a wide TV unit at an affordable price.
“I am really inspired by mid-century modern design and simple Scandinavian sensibilities. For me, this design was a chance to fuse the elements I love into one functional but stylish piece. I developed a triple jointing system specifically for this leg so we could maintain the striking acute angle whilst still providing the strength needed to support today’s large TVs. I think the symmetry of the piece is great when they are filled with equipment they develop even more character. I have had quite a few customers now comment on how much they love the fact that the shape and ‘face’ is reminiscent of the old space invader arcade game! It wasn’t something I consciously intended but I suspect it wasn’t a complete coincidence as I was a huge Space Invaders fan as a child! (We looked it up, the name of the lookalike space invader was ‘Octopus’…weirdly). We wanted to keep the price affordable so chose solid Scandinavian redwood pine (sustainably sourced of course!) which feels cohesive with the Scandi-leg design. Pine is softer than the more expensive hardwoods but we dovetail the edges for strength and use an industry leading ultra-durable lacquer which makes the surface incredibly hardwearing.”

95% Made to order Within 2 Weeks
This 180cm wide mid-century modern TV & media unit with Scandi-style legs is handmade to order. The dovetailed edges, internal shelf structure and triple-jointed legs provide strength and stability. There are three compartments providing optimum storage. The central compartment has a build in shelf with a cable hole behind each shelf-space. The two side compartments are left open and each has a cable hole for access. The removable sliding doors run on a single groove.
We use industry leading light-fast wood stains protected with an ultra-durable, hardwearing lacquer. With just a damp cloth and regular furniture polish the finish will continue looking like new for years. We have a range of standard stain colours but if you have another finish or colour in mind then let us know, if we can help we will.
Made from solid Scandinavian redwood pine sourced from sustainably managed forests, just across from the North Sea, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) throughout. We choose local suppliers whenever possible to reduce our supply chain footprint. We can absolutely garauntee that no Orangutans whatsoever are threatened by our furnuture!
