Accessorize: How to Profit From a New Demographic
Urban Home Entertainment
The Urban Lifestyle shapes home entertainment purchase behavior. The emergence of color in TV bezels, laptops, camcorders and MP3 players parallels the shift to more colorful home furnishings and apparel. The advent of thinner flat panels, wall-mounted speakers and sound bars address the trend towards space-saving entertainment solutions. The more recent use of netbooks, DVRs, streaming video devices and iPads adds more digital electronics that need a place to reside.
Urban Entertainment Furniture
Older style entertainment furniture sold today is large, heavy and bulky. New, smaller living spaces, more media storage needs and lighter flat-panel TVs require new furniture solutions. Urban entertainment furniture must address design, storage, style and the environment.
* Smart Design
Space saving designs should maximize storage and organization of A/V components, media and other accessories. Wall shelving, tall A/V component shelves and media storage towers use vertical space with a smaller footprint. Products that use steel and tempered glass easily support flat panels while offering quality, strength and durability. Use of low maintenance materials makes cleaning easier, and fewer parts mean less time to assemble.
