Corridor Media Center 8177 by BDI
designed by Matthew Weatherly
The Corridor Media Center by BDI lets you support your TV, house your media and accessories, and hide any unseemly mess and cables. Three louvered doors hide three cabinets with adjustable shelves, giving you plenty of space to store anything from speakers or a stereo to BluRay discs and DVDs. The doors' design allows the passage of sound and remote control signals while still keeping your things out of sight.
The Corridor TV Stand's top shelf holds up to 150 lbs, and the interior shelves provide more than enough strength for your components, unless you plan on stacking gold bricks inside. If you do, please take a picture so we can all enjoy the sight of massive amounts of gold in an entertainment center.
Recommended TV size: up to an 70" flat panel TV.
What's To Like:
- You can keep the doors closed on your unattractive equipment without losing the use of your remote. That's good design.
- Corridor's look is sleek and modern. The louvered doors give it a really attractive updated mid-century feel.
- Wheels for when you have to move it are a really nice touch - they're the perfect addition to a heavy TV stand.
What's Not to Like:
While the Corridor Entertainment Center does many things well, it's an expensive solution. We think it's worth the money, with its superb functionality and awesome looks - but it's still pricey.
The Bottom Line:
The Corridor Media Center is a modern, beautiful, and multi-functional media cabinet that is well-suited for anyone who wants to conceal components without losing use of the remote control (and while keeping an exquisite sense of style). For a crisp, clean entertainment center, look to the Corridor by BDI.

This home theater cabinet is innovatively engineered in a unique way so that the back can be removed effortlessly for easy access to components and connections. Need to accommodate a very deep component? The back panel can be left off the cabinet without sacrificing any structural rigidity, allowing the component to extend from the back as needed.
Concealed wheels are built into this unit's leg assemblies. This means the TV stand can be moved (even if fully loaded) away from the wall by one person for easy access to cables and connections. Levelers allow the unit to be raised off of its wheels to secure it in place.
BDI home theater furniture is engineered to keep the usual tangle of cables and connections neatly under control. This cabinet features removable back panels for easy access to the rear of components. Integrated routing channels provide space for speaker and TV cables to be neatly concealed. You'll be able to gather and secure all cables out of sight by using the supplied Velcro® closures.
Floors can be quite uneven and your home theater needs to be level for optimum performance. This home theater cabinet includes integrated levelers that are readily accessible from inside the cabinet, allowing it to be lifted up off of its wheels to secure it in place if desired.
Practically all of the glass used by BDI is tempered glass. Tempered glass is virtually shatterproof and four to five times stronger than standard glass. When used for shelves, tempered glass is strong enough to support the heaviest components and provides a high degree of durability.
In order to perform at peak levels, your components not only need to look cool, they have to stay cool. This cabinet facilitates airflow through generous ventilation slots integrated into the bottom panel, wood shelves and removable back panels. Cooler air is drawn in from the bottom of the cabinet, while hot air is naturally expelled out the back.
This TV stand features the finest quality materials and finishes. Sturdy construction and steel or interlocking-panel supports provide a strong foundation for your home theater. Additionally, BDI specifies only the finest European-style hardware. Door handles and other metal details are beautifully finished. The unique soft-close hinges on most door assemblies are fully adjustable to ensure that doors hang evenly, swing smoothly and close gently.
