Though it is perfectly acceptable for college students to span a piece of plywood across cinderblocks and call it furniture, the process often leaves living rooms vulnerable to style critics and karate black belts. Opt for unchoppable pieces with today's Groupon: for $149, you get $500 toward contemporary entertainment consoles from B-Modern.
B-Modern produces contemporary entertainment centers inspired by the art and architecture of the Bauhaus school. Each B-Modern piece has a minimalist look and is made with high-quality medium-density fiberboard and stainless-steel ball bearings that ensure smooth drawer function. The Producer collection includes the BM–661 ($1,080), which features six antislam drawers and red high-gloss accents. Entertainment centers in the Designer ($960) collection are marked by a high-gloss frame and a tempered-black-glass top. Meanwhile, stands in the Choreographer ($860) collection support televisions and other technological devices with a 70.8" base, sliding door, and a large drawer capable of storing one circus contortionist for emergency entertainment in the event of a power outage. If necessary, customers can arrange a visit to the B-Modern warehouse in Chatsworth to view items before purchasing.
