HOLLAND — The Sligh Furniture Co. entered the home entertainment market recently, marking the first time it has done that in its 122-year history.

The noted maker of clocks and home office furniture unveiled its new line at the International Home Furnishings Market held in High Point, N.C. earlier this spring.

Jeff Pulver, Sligh’s product development manager, said his firm has created a line of flexible products that can easily adapt to new video technology.

“Because the product cycle in TV technology is so quick, we needed to build in ways to make these products adjustable for many different product dimensions,” he said.

So Sligh products have a new patent-pending media organizational system that features movable separators to allow buyers to create custom ways of arranging cassettes, videotapes, CDs, DVDs and other items.

The Sligh décor styles include casual traditional, contemporary, West Indies, transitional, formal traditional and cottage. Home entertainment pieces are priced from $1,850 to $6,220.

“Sales of new wide-screen and rear-projection TVs are booming, and many consumers are in the market for stylish new furniture designed to house the latest electronics,” said Jackie Hirschaut, vice president of the American Furniture Manufacturers Association, the industry’s largest trade group.

Sligh Furniture was founded in 1880 and is headquartered in Holland.
