Lifts with "Refined Design"

A small crowd gathered in a corner of a the secondary hall, far from the main CEDIA Expo 2009 floor. The group watched as flat-panel TVs automatically glided in and out of Touchstone’s living room and bedroom cabinets.

Hidden TV lift technology isn’t new. In fact, maybe Touchstone’s remote exhibit – far away from that of Chief, Premier Mounts and other TV lift manufacturers – helped create its buzz. Jeff Sheahan, Touchstone CEO, suggests that the crowd is drawn to the furniture’s refined designs. He says Touchstone has furniture-making roots, which helps set it apart from competitors.
