Looking for a craftsman/mission style flat screen tv stand

javaandjazzDecember 31, 2008

I just recieved a craftsman style tv stand from the Home Decorator's Collection catalog. I was so dissapointed when I started taking out the pieces. It was very poor quality. Some pieces were split at critical points, some veneer was ripped up, some dents in exposed areas. It had lots of POTENTIAL though! I know you get what you pay for but this was almost $500! Needless to say I am returing it for a full refund. I will post a link of it below. Anyway, does anyone else know where I can find something similar? Thanks much, Rich

Hi there, Your post caught my eye because we are looking for the same thing.
I am not sure of your budget, but my husband and I are considering a Stickley mission style stand in quartersawn oak. They are having a winter sale right now and we were quoted approximately 5 times of what you paid for a 68" wide stand. They do make a 2 door model as well. We are considering it an investment, since the TV and it will be the focal point of our small living room.

I bought a 66" TV stand in quartersawn oak for $2000 from missionliving.com I couldn't find anything on the internet good or bad about them other than their site so I took the leap. The piece took 6-8 weeks to make and ship and I am very happy with it. Very high quality. All solid wood, no veneer. Very sturdy construction. Dovetailed draws, etc.
It shipped via freight with curb service which means that a truck with a liftgate pulls up and the use a pallet jack to pull the piece to in front of your house and they leave it there. You have to move it inside, unpack it etc. At 300+ pounds for a TV stand that might not be feasible for everyone to do. I had no problem with it. Had two friends come over and help me carry it to the second floor and unwrapped it there. Very well packed, no damage at all. I think they offer 'white glove delivery' also (where they bring it in your house and unpack it for you) but there's a significant charge for it...
