Platinum & Walnut elfa dÃ©cor freestanding Room Divider
I love my new freestanding entertainment center!
I moved into a new place that was somewhat limited on space. Especially for where the entertainment center could go. Finding something that looked how I wanted it to and fit the space was a challenge. So I decided to go with Elfa. I was able to design the entertainment center to fit the space perfectly with the exact shelving and storage set up that I wanted. And the platinum and walnut finishings give it a very sleek and modern finish. And the heigh provides me a lot of extra storage and shelf space over a similarly sleek designed low profile entertainment center that I could buy in other stores. And installing it was super easy. I defintely recommend this product to everyone who just can't find exactly what they want.

One sided versatile TV Stand
We move quite a bit and we needed something strong enough to hold a man cave sized older flat screen (117 lbs), not take up a lot of space or get dinged and ugly when moving, have open and closed storage, look good and be useful when we settle down and don't need it as a media center anymore.
And this did it all.
We did have to get two 2' side by side shelves to support the TV (weight needed brackets below TV, not just to the sides), rather than the seamless 4' shelf I desired, but I did get the seamless ones for the components below. I also got three mesh drawers of various depths for hiding remotes, manuals, cds, dvds, etc.
Do invest it a wood stain pen - some components have a nasty way of scratching if you are not careful.
One big issue-we did not measure the depth of our TV and the elfa supports in the back prevent us from lowering the TV the 3" we'd like without pushing the TV forward precariously. The viewing quality begins to diminish if the TV is much higher than seated eye level, though ours is still in the sweet spot.
Other than that, I can change the shelf size as needed, add or delete shelves or baskets, and shrink it down & move it in the same space a large mirror would take up.
Eventually, this will have a new life as a desk, wrapping or folding center, possibly in my closet.

Our DJ Entertainment Center
I purchased a free standing unit just like this in the picture, except mine is one sided. I use it as a DJ booth and place it against the wall. My fiance loves it!! He uses it to put his records, two Turntables, two CDJs, a mixer, and a laptop. We are also able to fit a wine fridge underneath it.
We put the unit together ourselves. Once you put up the standards, the rest is easy. You do need help putting the standards together though. This part could be a little tough. But with two people it's should be fine.
I would definitely recommend this product to any of my friends.

Needed a versatile unit to set up an art studio and have been designing in my head for over a year. The two sided unit looks wonderful and allows multiple people to utilize the space without getting in each other's way. The flow of the room is terrific, and everything is so accessible now. I have multiple drawers on each side with shelves on the upper half. The unit is classy and neatens up the space, as does all the Elfa. It is definitely worth the cost for both the quality and the versatility. It can easily be repurposed when and if I ever lose the creative spirit.
