The Story

An unexpected mix of materials and textures adds a primitive/modern touch of the tropics to our Blake media console. Antiqued brass pulls accent the soft grey finish of the plantation-grown teak, which is supported by the TFT, a nonprofit organization that promotes responsible forest conservation. Remote controls operate easily through the rattan panels on its four doors, which open to three adjustable shelves. Console can also serve as dining buffet or general storage. Cord cutouts and a sliding panel provide wire management. Blake home office collection also available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dependent on Lighting and Function Was beyond elated to purchase this a week ago!! I have been admiring this console for a full year but it was out of my price range. By admire, I mean I've looked it up dozens of times online, sat in front of it on countless occasions at C&B, and have talked about it so many times, my sweetie (who could care less about interior design) knows it by name. I am a researcher and in saving up for it I learned everything I could to ensure I was making a good decision. First, as other reviewers have said, the grey wash is almost imperceptible. That was ok but I wish wood swatches were available since this is a non-standard finish; you cannot be sure it will work in your home without finding another piece of wood in the store that's similar- to buy and take home (e.g, cutting board) as a proxy. Second, this is really large; I mapped out the measurements at home but when it arrived, it made our living room furniture look like miniatures. It needs a big room- much bigger than 12 x 16. If you put a 47" tv on it, it's 5'4" tall-huge! Third, as others have noted this is actually quite orange- especially if your walls are anything but white. (Ours are pale blue). At night without alot of lighting above it (a lamp doesn't do the trick), it's very dark, dull and muddy looking- not pretty. Fourth, as a reviewer indicated, this doesn't have sufficient ventilation for electronics. We have a DVR and PS2 in there and you could scramble an egg when both are on. I worry the wood will warp. (Our bluetooth and Apple tv remotes worked fine through the rattan). All in all, this looks gorgeous (but enormous) by day and awful by night. I don't think it can hold up to the electronic heat. Because I purchased for a discount given some minor defects it is not returnable thus we'll try selling our dining room sideboard and replacing with this. Perhaps in another room with different light and functions this will be as amazing as I'd been hoping all this time. As is I am very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great piece but wrong color I bought this without having seen it in person and going by the description and reviews online. When we got it I was really surprised by the color; it's not grey wash at all unless you look at it in a certain angle in a certain light. Otherwise it's reddish undertones. I like the piece but the color is way off from the picture. Unfortunately had to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from staple piece of our living room This piece is great - we were able to add storage to our living room but also have a durable piece of furniture that will take a couple bumps from our dog. We already had the Blake coffee table so we knew we would enjoy this piece as well. It has a ton of storage room so we can keep the room looking clean. It's very sturdy and I know we will enjoy it for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality, versatile, but beware orange color! Love this console! I am using it as a credenza/buffet, and it's the perfect size. Very substantial piece of furniture. I second other reviewers in that the console being off-the-ground really gives it an airy quality. Love the texture of the front doors. Also to note, as others have stated, this piece IS NOT GREY. I'd originally hoped it would match the ashy grey mango wood of my coffee table and bar stools. It does not- it is actually rather orange-y. I'm okay with it though, as the quality of the piece makes up for the misguiding color labeling of color in Crate and Barrel in the product name and description. I have some rust colored accents in my curtains and throw pillows that this echoes nicely. You may be disappointed if you're expecting the rather beachy, grey-washed color as advertised in the site photos. Overall, highly recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad Door I received this on Saturday and noticed that one of the doors was warped. I was told I would be delivered a new piece and the old one will be picked up at that time.Otherwise, it looks great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this console! We bought this for our den/ reading room and it is beautiful and functional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very functional - Won't scratch easily Very functional because it will not scratch easily, comparing to other kind of wood finishing, and because of the door panel. I bought this for our dining room so I can store fruit, onion, potato, and etc. inside and still get the air so they can breath. Of course the light wood color and the look are other very important factors that we purchased it. Don't forget this is teak so it will last a long time. Have this for over a year now. Still loving it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just too large... This is a beautiful console and we bought it for our new house because it was so unique. Unfortunately, it is a lot larger in the living room than it looked in the store. Its a perfect look, just not a perfect size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile cabinet. Fell in love with this console because of rattan textured doors and stain color. I was looking for a media console that was sleek and had a timeless traditional feel to it. I found it in spades with the Blake console! The finish on this piece is a grey wash over teak that blends well with many wood pieces in my home. I also like the idea that I can use this piece in an office for storage or in a dining room as a buffet. I have gotten tired of purchasing big pieces of furniture that serve one purpose only, hiding all the electronics. The Blake is so versatile that I am sure it will serve many purposes through the years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around console Fits with many different styles and very sturdy. Love that it is large enough to balance our very large flat screen but because it is open underneath, it doesn't appear so heavy in the room. Great color as well, but not very gray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blake Grey Wash 68 Media Console We recently purchased this beautiful media console for our townhouse remodel in Tucson and are very pleased with the design, materials, finish and high quality workmanship of the piece. It looks fabulous in our media area and the TV screen and sound system look great on top of the console. We shopped extensively before purchasing and we are so happy we found this at Crate & Barrel as it is heads and shoulders above anything we looked at in that price range and it's better than higher priced units we searched out. The design on the shelves inside also makes if flexible for a myriad of media components.Recommend highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Perfect. I have a mixture of furniture ranging from traditional to Asian and this was theperfect complement. The lines and finish have a contemporary, clean look. All but one remote for electronics works with the doors closed. Only downside is that there is no extra room for storing DVD's, games, etc. after installing the electronicequipment. But with the look and price I'll find another spot for all that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful piece of furniture It is hard to purchase something this significant online - after all, you are staring at it every time you turn on your TV. I'm happy to say that I am very happy with it. It is well made, and everyone who sees it, loves it. Given that people have such a wide range of tastes and styles, that says a lot. Also, our remotes work perfectly when the doors are closed. I was a bit worried about that, but we've never had an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I love this piece! I am using it as a server in my dining room and it looks stunning. Casual yet beautiful, exactly how I pictured it. I am glad I finally made the decision to purchase this console after looking at it for over a year.
