Reasons to Choose AV Furniture by Salamander Designs

If you’re an AV integrator or enthusiast, there are a number of furniture brands to choose from. But if you’re seeking the absolute finest furniture products to complete and enhance your audio/video system experience, Salamander Designs is the clear choice.

You could call it an obsession. At Salamander, we are relentlessly focused on the needs of our customers, and producing products that are uniquely shaped by their needs. Creating functional furniture that seamlessly integrates lifestyles with today’s technology is our mission. We consider our design philosophy to be the perfect fusion of visual design, functional engineering and solid craftsmanship. With that in mind, here are four reasons to choose our AV furniture:

  1. Design Your Own (DYO) – Each AV enthusiast has a unique space and personal vision. Our extensive variety of styles, materials, sizes, finishes and performance options empower you to choose a design solution that fits your system and room perfectly. Design your own from the ground up, or choose from pre-designed furniture solutions. An innovative digital “DYO” process, including our award-winning Custom Configurator, assist in selecting the style, configuration and functional features that align perfectly with your desired use. And if you need customization assistance, we can help design a perfect solution.
  2.  Built To Last – We’re in a class by ourselves when it comes to building furniture, and that confidence is backed by a lifetime product guarantee. Only the finest materials, craftmanship and advanced construction methods are used to produce premium AV entertainment furniture and accessories. Careful attention is paid to each component to achieve a balance of function, durability, comfort and style. We’re obsessed with the structural integrity and flexibility of our systems. It all begins with a unique, precision-engineered aluminum chassis. With material selection, we prefer what we call “honest” materials – real and natural – for their inherent strength and beauty. And all of our finished, customized AV cabinets and seating are hand-made and built-to-order in the USA.
  3. Engineered To Perform – Many of our customers express a “love at first sight” experience with Salamander furniture. But it goes far beyond visual appeal. Our professional grade products are designed to perform and integrate seamlessly with the latest, most advanced technology. From performance enhancing, custom AV cabinets to luxurious home theater seating, our products are engineered to perform. To comprehend the full breadth of the Salamander brand, take an inside tour of any of our products.
