Bespoke Handmade Freestanding Media Tv Console Table

Project Description

Welcome to the Zdena signature range of furniture exclusively designed and manufactured by Cedar and Rose.

This media console was the collaborative vision between client, designer and maker. Below you will be able to read more about the origins of the design and how this came to fruition.

The brief 

A long standing client came to us with a simple scenario; build me a piece of heirloom quality furniture that has no mechanical fixings all traditional joints and fixing techniques….. oh and it has to have the appearance of a “Z”.

We didn’t waste anytime, and put pen to paper, well actually pencil to paper but anyway enough of the semantics. After initial discussions and sketches to outline the shape and form of the piece, now came the good part. Which joints and methods would we use on this.

So from the discussions and outline of the materials that were going to be used, we knew it was going to be heavy. So this had a overwhelming outcome on the selection.


Everything on this piece uses either straight mortise and tenon, pegged mortise and tenon, dovetail joints both classic and sliding, and splines.

The Zend article

The images that accompany this show how well the Sony Bravia TV, Bang & Olfsen speaker and Onkyo amp fit seamlessly into it. Apart from this it enhances the simplicity the elegant lines and proportion of the carefully engineered electronic items. The 100’s of man hours that has culminated in these items being able to sit harmoniously as one. It not only makes a statement it sets a standard.


The ZDENA range offers the very best in British design and fully embraces British Craftsmanship. For more information or to talk about commissioning please get in touch by which ever method you feel most comfortable with.
