In February 2007, TODAY Show contributor and home expert Lou Manfredini featured a Standout Designs solid wood TV console in his TODAY Show segment about designing around your new flatscreen TV. Since that piece aired on NBC our consoles have grown considerably larger and we have enhanced them with many additional AV features such as generous center channel shelves, hidden wheels, fans, dovetail media drawers, and vented glass shelves. However, Mr. Lou Manfredini's comments about Standout Designs quality remain as relevant as ever.

We have been asked many times "How did you get your furniture on the TODAY Show?" and heard comments many times like "You must have an excellent PR department." Truth be told, we are simply a small family business dedicated to building AV furniture that we would want in our own homes. You might say that our furniture is our PR department.
