NEWS: Optimum brings a dash of style to your TV furniture

We don't often get excited about TV and AV racks, but this stylish number from Optimum International certainly caught our eye.

The Luke by Optimum range features an eye-catching swivel TV stand available in three finishes - Maranello high-gloss red, high-gloss white and - erm - a rather more unusual matt-black, rubber-touch finish, if that's your thing.

They're not exactly cheap: the latter costs £1099, while the two high-gloss models are £1299 each. Still, they do look great.

The Luke stand is 114cm high, 70cm wide and 57.5cm deep. It has a universal mounting bracket that can accommodate LCD or plasma screens from 37 to 46 inches. There are two integrated shelves beneath the screen to house you AV kit, and there's also a built-in cable management system to hide all the wiring.

A swivel base allows the TV screen to be moved through a full 360 degrees, and it has flush-mounted castors so it can easily be moved around.
