TV Stands and Streaming Services. How to Lounge: Part Two.

Lately, the new video streaming service, Disney Plus, has taken the world by storm. In our week-long series on lounging and how to do it right, we had to address streaming TV as an easy way to unwind. Just because it’s easiest, doesn’t always mean it’s the best option. When beautiful weather rolls in, our Unruh team loves to get outside with respective friends and family members for weekend travel and adventures. However, holiday season obviously delivers colder weather and an opportunity to get cozy in front of the TV stand . . . likely for some streaming.

And there is no short of online streaming services these days: Netflix, Hulu, Apple TV, Amazon Prime among others. What we love about Disney Plus is that older generations can enjoy classics of their youth, while new generations get to experience a timeless cinematic experience that Disney has provided since 1923.

Fun Fact: For all you Kansas Citians out there, did you know Walt Disney hails from our city? The Disney family moved to Kansas City in 1911 (while Walt was 10-years-old) where he has a paper route for The Kansas City Star for six years. Walt also took Saturday classes at The Kansas City Art Institute where he honed in on cartooning.

Although you have multiple streaming options to choose from, your TV stand should sit tried and true in your living room – never wavering for the sake of familial entertainment now and in the years to come. The beauty about Unruh TV stands is that they serve multiple purposes: storage, display and entertainment center. Below are two customer spaces ready for lounging, and your living room could be next. At our first showroom appointment, we’ll discuss your dreams and goals as it relates to hosting friends and family in the future. It starts with a trip to Unruh, and ends with decades (possibly centuries!) of memories ahead.

The Hendricks House

“We were overly surprised with our experience at Unruh. Carly took us through the process from start to finish. It’s now our goal to eat at our Unruh table every night of the week. We love it!” -Barb Hendricks

When Barb came to Unruh, she wanted furniture that would make a statement when friends and family gathered. Her choices included the Fremont Table, Fallbrooke Chairs, Cornwell Bench and our Westport Sideboard.

She chose to display the sideboard in her dining room. And we know the piece will give her years of service as she hosts loved ones. In addition, if Barb ever wanted to switch things up, she could easily relocate the Westport to her living room as its own TV console. With three drawers and ample cabinet space below, a Westport Sideboard fits the bill for any kind of entertainment purposes. Of course our recommendation is a TV stand for streaming and lounging, but it would also look great with a record player or sound system. Dress this sideboard any way you’d like and your room will never be the same.

The Davis House

With a home as aesthetically modern as it is rustic, we knew the Creekwater Console table was the perfect fit for the Davis family. Look at this space inside their home and decide for yourself.

The Creekwater fits seamlessly as a piece of furniture for future Davis generations to dress and enjoy. And yes, this console table serves great purpose as a TV stand as well. Two open shelves beneath the table top, you can dream about how to utilize the space. We’ll make it a reality through quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. This TV stand, like the Westport Sideboard as well as our other options to choose from, is available in six types of hardwood to choose from: Knotty Alder, Cherry, Maple, Hickory, White Oak, and Black Walnut. With dozens of finishes to choose from, we will make this piece your own. And you will possess a lifetime guaranteed TV stand to pass down to your children and theirs.

For When "It's Collld Outside" 🎶

Please note that our goal for your family is to stay active and enjoy the beautiful things in life. Ideally, when you're outside exploring this beautiful earth. But when you’re tired or the weather's bad, cozying up and lounging at home does the trick. Especially with a holiday movie classic. What’s your favorite?!

Thanks to the online powers that be, we have Disney classics to enjoy throughout the holidays and beyond. And if we’re going to thank Walt Disney, we should thank Kansas City for bringing a cartoon empire to life.
