Smart home automation has ushered a wave of coolness into our homes. From voice-activated home theaters to the enviable media furnishings that house smart gadgets, automation has changed the way we think about design.

Home automation integrators can easily house most technologies within the walls or ceilings, running network systems of wiring within the infrastructure of the home. This strategy not only seamlessly connects home automation elements, but also eliminates clutter. But there is the style-savvy option of media furniture for easy storage of audiovisual technology as well. If you have the space…decorate.


Audio and video equipment require thoughtful placement. Brands like BDi and Salamander are way ahead of the functional engineering game. Media cabinets and consoles for speakers and TVs come with wheels for easy movement. And removable panels for quick access. Gone are the days of reaching in and searching blindly. Designs also include vibration-dampening pins and remote-friendly doors with perforated material composition. Signals and commands easily get in, while sound dispersion flows evenly out. Safety straps for anchoring flat-screen TVs are also included. And compartments are adjustable.


Of equal importance is an aesthetically exquisite design. Furnishings for housing smart technology must be fashionable. Our favorite designs from BDi and Salamander feature beautiful wood, industrial metals, and glossy veneers. Shelving inside is adjustable. And the creations are endlessly versatile.


Media centers for smart technology house all components, eliminating any possibility of clutter. They provide the perfect surface for decor. With a stack of vintage magazines in the center and a large green succulent on top as an accent piece, a media cabinet is both functional and fabulous.

Home automation offers greater connectivity and ease of living. With modern cutting-edge technology that is intelligent and user-friendly, there are too many reasons not to add some to your life. And it’s a great excuse to pick out a fabulously functional piece of furniture.

Responsive Living, the term coined by Acoustic Architects founders, Aaron Flint and Spencer Hauldren, is the concept of seamlessly enhancing the client’s unique lifestyle using smart home technology. Responsive Living allows you to interact with your space via touch input, voice command, and predictive automation, placing you in full control of your home.
