IKEA recently introduced a completely new line that integrates smart TV and sound systems with furniture.  The ‘Uppleva’ features an entertainment unit built into IKEA’s simplistic shelf designs, bringing better aesthetics and functionality to the living room. In collaboration with China’s TCL Multimedia, IKEA was able to integrate an LED HDTV with a built-in Blu-ray player and 2.1 sound system into the wooden stand. Users can get more out of the system by installing optional wireless subwoofer that delivers stereo sound. Although details on the specifics of the entertainment center are still vague, it is rumored that it will be able to incorporate additional devices such as gaming systems and set-top boxes.

Users will be able to customize their own Uppleva, choosing between several different screen sizes and styles for the TV down to the specific color of the frame. The Uppleva retails for 6,500 Swedish kroner (approximately $960) and will hit European stores this fall. Availability in the U.S. market and globally is expected in the Spring of 2013. In the meantime, check out a video about the debut of the all-in-one entertainment unit:
