Ever since we moved into the house a year ago, we have been on the look out for a new entertainment center for the living room upstairs. Today, the hunt was on. After doing lots of research online, going to Best Buy, Target, Crate and Barrel, and Circuit City, we came up with a big fat goose egg.
Trying to match existing furniture with something new is extremely difficult. We have the black antique finished furniture from Pottery Barn from a few years ag0 before the black furniture started to catch on. Now, it's everywhere. But buyer beware. Some of the faux-finish looks awful! There is quite the difference between online and in person. We spotted one that we loved at Circuit City - but not the right color. Now we spotted one that is that style with the black finish, and hopefully we'll be able to get it tomorrow.
It gets a bit intense when you start to add the number of component slots, height, width and all the other crap that goes along with it. Don't want sliding doors, must be hinged and opened up.
So tomorrow the quest is still on, we'll see how it goes...
