Two more Bush products designated Consumers Digest Best Buys

Furniture World Magazine


Consumers Digest magazine has designated two more Bush Industries products as Consumers Digest Best Buys. The article, entitled, "That's Entertainment…Furniture," gives the Edgewood Video Base and the Tuxedo Home Entertainment Center the designation in the February 2005 issue. Two other Bush home office products, the Heritage Pine Swing Out Office Armoire and the Jagger Comfort Zone™ Computer Cart, received this designation in May 2004. Consumers Digest is a leading consumer publication founded in 1959. The publication evaluates consumer products and provides timely information about diverse consumer matters. According to publisher, Randy Weber, each product has been recognized by the editors in the current issue as having exceptional value in today's highly competitive marketplace. On average, a Consumer's Digest Best Buy Rating is awarded to fewer than three percent of the competing models in any given product category. "Once again Consumers Digest has recognized Bush products as outstanding values," said Rob Ayres, President of Bush Industries. "Together with the Pinnacle awards we received this Fall at High Point, Bush Industries is receiving well-deserved recognition for our excellence in developing stylish, functional and affordable furniture." In addition to the recognition Bush Industries has received from Consumers Digest, several of its products were recognized by the American Society of Furniture Designers in October at Fall Market in High Point, NC, including the Tuxedo Home Entertainment Center, which placed first in the home entertainment category. Consumers Digest defines a Best Buy as a product that offers the most value for a given amount of money. It is a nationally available product that merits special attention from consumers based on its combination of performance, ease-of-use, features, durability, warranty, efficiency, styling, and maintenance and servicing requirements. The Tuxedo Home Entertainment Center's elegant design incorporates numerous features that integrate a state-of-the-art home theater system seamlessly into the home including storage and illuminated curio display functionality. Sliding frosted glass doors glide to reveal either the entertainment components or the curio displays. Like most home entertainment centers marketed by Bush, Tuxedo accommodates both the latest in home entertainment technology and older or conventional technologies. All Bush entertainment products are also tip tested against stringent standards established by Underwriters Laboratories that are intended to protect consumers and their children. It has a suggested retail price of $799. The Edgewood Video Base is a console that accepts both conventional and flat panel TVs. Storage is abundant. It has open center shelves and glass-concealed shelves where electronic components can be kept dust free. Three drawers provide concealed storage for media, remotes, etc. Its suggested retail price is $299.99. "The design recognition Bush has received in the last year is impressive," said Jim Schmidt, Vice President of Marketing and Merchandising at Bush. "Both trade and consumer organizations are finding tremendous value and style in our furniture. We're getting well-deserved recognition."
