Solid Wood Media Unit

Initial Concept

The concept for the Magnus media unit was simplicity - a statement piece that can hide away all the messy bits and pieces that make up our life, and yet be beautiful Mid-Century Modern inspired furniture.

As a father and son founding team, David and Adam Light understood the need to have someone to house media, provide storage and still bring elegance into your space. The initial idea for the Magnus round dining table combines this need with their proud tradition of valuing the authenticity of materials to craft quality furniture, designed for living. 

Sourcing of Materials

We work hard to ensure that we’re always producing sustainable furniture. For example, the solid American oak which makes up the bulk of the Magnus media unit is sourced from American forests which embrace sustainable principles - meaning the wood is sustainably harvested, works to restore the ecosystem, implements a replanting process, undertakes consistent environmental monitoring, and respects the land rights of indigenous peoples.

We also use oak because it's hardy and it lasts - it has a natural strength which makes it ideal for the interior home environment. Unlike veneered furniture, there's less damage from wear and tear so you don't have to throw it out to replace it with something equally replaceable. 

Our solid wood furniture is a provider of carbon storage and therefore has a positive effect on the planet by containing carbon, and its regrowth in sustainable managed forests adds to the carbon emission reduction. 

By crafting our solid American oak furniture, such as the Magnus media unit, from wood we are doing the best we can on the planet - making pieces that last through the generations and rejecting the tread of flat-pack, cheap, disposable, replaceable veneer furniture.

What to Furnish With

The Magnus media unit works perfectly within a Scandi or Mid-Century Modern decor and with any of our Magnus coffee or dining tables. The coffee tables provide space for the important things - a cup of coffee, a book, a lamp, while the complementary dining tables provide space for dinners and conversations with family and friends that linger into the early hours. 

The rounded edges and elegant design of the Magnus Coffee Tables inspire gentle tranquility and bring a modern touch to your home. Magnus’s effortless balance of soft curves and clean lines is inspired by the Mid-century Modern furniture movement that creates an effortless, timeless atmosphere, designed for life. Solid, strong American oak construction means the Magnus coffee tables are long-lasting - with the right care can bring decades of service and refined style. Bring the soft, warm tones and smooth texture of the solid oak Magnus Coffee Tables into your living space and experience easy, sweeping elegance. Available in a round or rectangular shape to perfectly suit your living room design.
