An Unusual Furniture Design Niche: Behind-the-Sofa Consoles

Here’s an unusual furniture niche: Powered behind-the-sofa consoles. Michigan-based builder Mitten State Woodworks specializes in them, offering depths as narrow as 3″, and as wide as 11″. The other dimensions are up to you and the size of your sofa.

A built-in outlet provides two standard plugs and two USB-A ports. You can spec additional outlets.

They offer them in Oak, Maple, Pine and Walnut and with a variety of staining options:

Non-powered units are also available.

Prices obviously vary according to dimensions, powered/non-powered and wood species, and are in the $80 to $200 range.

It’s an intriguing category; the “design” work is minimal, as is the construction (sadly, pocket hole screws, from what I could see in the grainy user review photos). And because of the application there’s no need to design the pieces to stand on their own. One thing I’d add, however, is some kind of felt to the back, to protect the wall’s paint. If these have such a feature, it’s not listed in the descriptions.
