Customer Spotlight – Elizabeth from St. Petersburg, FL

Welcome in to Elizabeth’s St. Petersburg home!  Elizabeth chose our Craftsman TV lift cabinet for her house.  She enjoys collecting art and pottery and found our Craftsman TV lift cabinet the perfect solution for displaying her art while at the same time concealing her flat screen TV.  Elizabeth opted to switch out the wood panel and insert speaker cloth for maximum sound quality.  The speaker cloth is included with the Craftsman TV lift cabinet for those who wish to switch out the panels as Elizabeth has done.

“I'd love to share my story and photo. I refused to get a large flat-screen TV because I didn't want it sitting in my living room all of the time. We have a lot of art and nice furniture, so the lift cabinet was the perfect compromise. We can have the large television AND the beautiful piece of furniture all in the same room.  I was even able to purchase a new piece of pottery that fits beautifully on top of the cabinet, even when the TV is up. Thanks for solving our problem, TVLiftCabinet.com!”

Thanks Elizabeth for sharing your home photo and experience.  If you like reading our customer spotlights and like Elizabeth’s home, hit the “Like” button.

Watch Out for Sneaky Cable Deals!

I recently bought a condo and am now looking for reasonable cable options.  Since I am living by myself, I do not have the luxury of splitting the cable bill and am looking for the most affordable option.

Through my research, I have discovered that all the big name cable providers are offering deals on cable packages.  On first glance, you may think the deals are good.  However, take a look at the fine print.  These deals are not good at all!  This is what I discovered.

AT&T which provides DirectTV, had a deal offering basic cable for as low as $29.99 for 12 months.  However, if you read the fine print you discover you must sign into a two year contract.  This means that after the first year, your cable bill nearly doubles to rates as high as $54-$60, and this is just for basic cable.  Imagine how much your bill would increase for add-ons!  Comcast and Verizon are also guilty of doing this same sneaky sale tactic.  Which leaves many consumers such as myself without an affordable cable option.

I did find out courtesy of an ehow.com article, that cable providers are required by the FCC to offer a limited basic cable option.  I did try to inquire about this from Comcast and was informed that in my area it is still $20.99 per month and only gets you channels 1-22.  Is it me, or does that seem high?  I am at the point, where I would like them to bring back the analog rabbit antennas.  At least then I could get for free the standard 3 to 4 channels.

This led my search in a new direction.  I discovered that Netflix is offering a one month free trial and then it is only $7.99 per month after the trial period is over.  With Netflix I can get thousands of movies and TV shows without the commercials.  However, I will lose the capability to watch shows when first aired.  That is the trade off. I will also need to purchase a Wii, Play Station or one of their other compatible components in order to get NetFlix to work on my TV within my Carousel White TV lift cabinet.   I have decided I would rather pay a one-time fee with very low monthly payments than pay high monthly payments over the years.  If you do the math, Netflix will save you hundreds.

Severe Weather in the South affects Furniture Industry

The recent severe weather that spawned tornadoes and floods across the south has had a major impact on the furniture industry.  Fortunately, ImportAdvantage's factory and warehouse were not affected by the tornado.  However, according to Furniture Today, particularly affected is northeast Mississippi, an area popular for upholstery manufacturers. Several factories were completely destroyed during the storms. Employees were evacuated from the factories as baseball sized hail demolished roofs and tornado sirens warned of nearby danger. Reports from employees that were stuck inside the evacuated factories include broken or torn off roofs and blown out glass. Long-time furniture industry executive, Lynn Davis, was one of over 200 fatalities attributed to the storms that moved through the area.

The American Red Cross has opened shelters in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Tennessee and Vermont. They have given mental health consultations, provided over-night stays to displaced residents and provided food and water to those in need in the affected areas. To donate, please visit www.redcross.org, call 1-800-REDCROSS or text “REDCROSS” to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Customer Spotlight – Dennis and Veronica from New Hope, Pennsylvania

This week we would like to feature the home of Dennis and Veronica from New Hope, Pennsylvania.  Dennis and Veronica’s family room showcases traditional lines with Caribbean accents.  The Banyan Creek TV lift cabinet blends in beautifully with their existing leather upholstered chair and ottoman.  The rich African mahogany finish of the Banyan Creek warms the room.

“Our story is simple; we love the look and the functioning of our lift TV unit. It impresses everyone who has seen it, both for its quality and for its uniqueness. Most have never seen anything like it before. If we had another place in our home that could accommodate another Lift TV unit we would buy it from you guys in a heartbeat”, states Dennis.

Thank you, Dennis and Veronica for sharing with us all, your lovely home.  If you like their home, tell us.  Click on the "like" button.

"The Voice" on NBC takes on FOX’s "American Idol"

This past Tuesday marked the debut of a new reality talent competition called "The Voice". Did you see the debut show on your Harbor Green TV lift cabinet?  The Mark Burnett produced show has established singers perform a blind audition in front of four celebrity coaches – Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green, Adam Levine of Maroon 5 and Blake Shelton. These blind auditions are conducted with the coaches’ backs to the contestant. They are then judged solely on their voice, not their appearance. The coaches pick contestants they would like to mentor, often leading to fights between coaches. The idea is to mentor their picks until the end where the last contestant standing will receive a $100,000 recording contract with Universal.

When the show goes live in several weeks, viewers will have a chance to vote for contestants they would like to “save” for the next round. Unlike "American Idol", "The Voice" does not judge and vote contestants off the show, the coaches mentor artists who already have careers in entertainment.  Some have had previous deals or worked on Broadway. Contrary to "American Idol’s" massive open calls in stadiums across the country, contestants on "The Voice" were selected by a team of representatives from the show. One gleaming similarity – Frenchie Davis, who some may recall as the disqualified contestant from "Idol" in 2003, is a contestant on "The Voice".

With the weekly TV lineup saturated with talent shows, it will be interesting to see how "The Voice" plays out. The "American Idol" finale is scheduled for May 25. Interesting to note, "The Voice" will begin airing live episodes at the end of May - coincidence?
