Custom Furniture Designed Specifically for You from Your Houston Salamander Dealer

A/V furniture is perfect for keeping all those wires for your tech hidden and organized.

Custom Furniture Designed Specifically for You from Your Houston Salamander Dealer

Custom furniture is designed with your every need and wish in mind, not someone else's. With modular furniture, you can seamlessly integrate technology into your home, without any eyesores or bulk. Imagine an A/V cabinet that hides all of your TV wires and fits beautifully into your entertainment space or comfortable home theater seating in the exact layout that you wanted. Your Houston Salamander dealer can transform your home with custom furniture solutions designed specifically for you.

Entertainment, Without the Wires

Flying looks a lot more impressive if you can't see the wires. When you walk into your living room, you shouldn't be able to see all the wires and electronics that make your technology work. You should be fully immersed in the impressive, exciting, and comfortable entertainment space, with no bulky wires or electronics on display. With custom furniture, you can maintain the illusion of full technological integration.

Imagine a state-of-the-art, fully customizable credenza that is specifically designed to seamlessly store and hide all the cords and electronics for your TV. Salamander A/V furniture not only hides the electronics but also protects and integrates them into your space. These sleek modular cabinets offer cable management, a cooling system to protect your electronics, and can even integrate an impressive sound system right into the cabinet. The vented cabinet's built-in cooling system keeps your electronics from overheating.

Now, you can shrink down the capabilities of an entire movie theater to fit inside a sleek A/V cabinet that integrates effortlessly into your home. 

Custom, Not "One Size Fits All"

Every room in your home should feel like it was designed specifically for you and your family. Your style, your preferences, and your wants and needs should all be reflected in your home. Furniture sets the tone for the entire space, so you need to be able to customize it. With custom furniture, you don't have to compromise.

You can customize your A/V cabinet to perfectly fit into the design of your home. Change the size, shape, layout, finish, color, material, and much more so that the furniture will blend harmoniously into your home. With custom furniture, your specific requests can turn into reality because of the modular design of Salamander furniture. This furniture works with you so that you don't have to settle. 

Your home theater should feel like home. Do you want your theater chairs in a sectional layout with reclining features in rich black leather? Or would a loveseat and single chairs with storage ottomans better fit your needs?  From material to layout, with custom seating, you can easily have all of your requirements met. 

Streamlined Solutions, For Your Home and Office

Salamander vented cabinets and customized seating provide elegant solutions all over your home. It will feel like your home but even better. Unwind in an ergonomically designed theater chair with wireless reclining and built-in cup holders from the comfort of your home. Entertain your family or guests without the distractions of cables or bulky equipment. Streamlined, customized, and modern.

You can also update your office space with Salamander's clever furniture solutions. Use their professional audio racks and modular electronics stands to update your office's technological capabilities. Your presentations can now have impressive audio and visuals that will enhance your hard work. With sleek TV mounts and cable management cabinets, your office will blend beautifully with modern technology.

Purify for a Fresh Start in 2021

Stay healthy in the new year with pure air and water from Pure 365.

Purify for a Fresh Start in 2021

If there is one valuable lesson to learn from 2020, it is that our overall health, including the air we breathe, can make the difference between experiencing wellness and vitality or potential illness. This is why we are dedicating ourselves to providing the most outstanding air and water purification system available to our valuable clients. At Echo Workshop, we believe the Pure 365 Air & Water Purification System delivers the highest level of water and air purification processes available on the market today.

A Fresh Start

We commend those who make a New Year's resolution to improve their overall health. Committing to a health and wellness program is one of the most important measures a person can take to ensure they will remain active and vibrant for themselves, their family, and their employment. 

Pure Air — Of course, one of the most important lessons of 2020 that everyone learned, is that the quality of the air we breathe is of critical importance. Breathing clean and healthy air provides a number of benefits, including avoiding potential illness. It also reduces the load of dust, chemicals, and other allergens and irritants we would normally breathe in from unpurified air. This is especially important for asthmatics, as well as those who are sensitive to chemicals and/or have a dust allergy.

Pure Water — Part of maintaining good health means drinking plenty of clean, pure water. Keeping nasal, respiratory, and other vital tissues well-hydrated means our body will be better able to fight illness. When a person has access to pure, good-tasting water they tend to drink more of it. In turn, this will help prevent them from becoming dehydrated, which is a well-known detractor when faced with germs that can cause illness.

Benefits of a Purification System

A whole-home purification system is great for improving the overall quality of the air and water throughout the home, including key areas such as a home gym, a yoga room, or a meditation room. Family members will also enjoy improved sleep, as they breathe in purified air that is free of allergens such as dust mites, chemicals, and other irritants. 

Commercial spaces such as offices, restaurants, and other spaces where people congregate and need access to clean water and fresh air are all ideal locations for installing an air and water purification system. A purification system will allow inhabitants of these areas to maintain optimal levels of energy, health, and productivity.

Why Pure 365? 

Echo Workshop is committed to Houston health and wellness, which is why we are a proud Pure 365 Houston dealer. A Pure 365 system goes beyond simple purification and offers a complete package that includes the education, monitoring, and control of a building's air and water quality.

Purify — A premiere Pure 365 configuration provides a state-of-the-art hardware and software system. The hardware itself is designed to trap and eliminate 99% of volatile organic compounds, along with other potentially harmful microorganisms and ultrafine particles.

Monitor — The app that comes with a Pure 365 system allows inhabitants to compare their indoor air quality to the air quality outside and lets them know when their outdoor air is safe enough to open windows for ventilation.  

Control — The Pure 365 app can identify issues negatively impacting indoor air and water quality, so they can be addressed. The app can also help plan outdoor activities and travel by tracking air quality levels around the world.

 Education — Pure 365's app also provides useful information about pollutants and the harm they can cause, so interested parties can become more proactive about protecting the health and safety of their family and/or their clients.  

Summary

A New Year's health and wellness resolution for 2021 begins with a commitment to safe and clean air and water, whether at home or at work. Contact us today to learn more. 

From Family Time to Game Time, Take Your TV to the Next Level

Your Samsung Frame TV really is a work of art.

From Family Time to Game Time, Take Your TV to the Next Level

Imagine if you were able to have the stunning display, graphics, and technology you want and expect from your TV, while also possessing a piece of personalized and ever-changing art that can blend in and enhance any home decor. Imagine being able to display your most beloved pictures of precious family moments, right where you just finished watching your favorite new drama. Imagine re-watching the video of your daughter's dance recital you recorded on your phone, but for the whole family to see, mirrored and projected on your big screen. All of this, and so much more, is possible with the Samsung Frame TV in your Houston home. 

What Is It?

The Samsung Frame TV is a designer TV inspired by a picture frame. It features a QLED (quantum light-emitting diode) screen that enhances and improves color and brightness, 4K resolution, and highly customizable monitor bezels. When you're not watching your impressive screen, it transforms into a beautiful work of art. Let's take a closer look at what it can do. 

Design

The design of the Samsung Frame TV is meant to be versatile and personal, making it a great fit for any Houston residence. Available in multiple sizes, it's able to blend in or stand out in your space. First, choose your size and bezel, from a range of different colors and styles, and the ability to change with built-in magnets that attach and detach with ease. Then, easily hang your frame like a piece of art, flush against the wall with a clean, sleek finish. You'll be impressed with the beauty of your new TV before you even turn it on. When it's time to watch your favorite show, enjoy the brilliant color, adaptive picture, and active voice amplifier. This means your screen will adjust its picture due to the surrounding light and its sound due to existing background noise. When you have to change the channel to share the wealth with your family, you can always temporarily split the screen and mirror your phone's screen on the other side. Yes, that can even include checking scores on that game you're missing out on. Make everyone happy. As it is compatible with your other devices, you can easily enjoy the various features you expect from a Smart TV, such as voice recognition and app configuration. The Samsung Frame TV takes the features you already anticipate while adding and enhancing them. 

Art Mode

This is the exciting part. Improve your home's decor or showcase your best family moments by turning your TV into a work of art. Curate your own collection from an impressive archive of over 1,200 pieces that is constantly growing. Classics, modern, eclectic, eccentric, choose whatever works best for your space. You're even given a free trial to the Art Store, meaning you can play around and experiment before deciding what you like. Have a single classic you enjoy displayed at all times, or flip through a personalized list of pieces to keep your space fresh and exciting. You can even upload your own photography and family portraits to proudly display.  You also have the option to filter and edit the photos to truly make them your own. Whenever the TV isn't on, you can engage Art Mode in order to display your favorite art pieces and elevate the room. Then, when you leave the room, you can program the art to turn off and conserve energy. Don't worry, it will turn back on when you enter the room again.

With Samsung Frame TV, you don't have to settle. Watch the big game with incredible sound and quality visuals. You don't even have to worry about a glare. Then, elevate your space with fine art, or with cherished family moments. Echo Workshop is your Houston Samsung Dealer, so contact us before the holidays sneak by!

Breathe Deep This Respiratory Care Week with Air Purification Systems

A better you begins with better air.

Breathe Deep This Respiratory Care Week with Air Purification Systems

Clean air. Like clean water, we need it to survive. Also like water, the air we breathe is something we tend to take for granted but cannot afford to, especially in our homes. You wouldn't allow your home's water to be polluted, would you? So why allow the air you and your family breathe in your home to be polluted? 

With Respiratory Care Week here (October 25-31), come find out how an air purification system in your home can help elevate your life, improve your health, and keep your family safe.

Elevate Your Energy

Have you ever noticed how good you feel when you breathe fresh air? How invigorating it is when you step outside? Well, there's a reason for that: the air outside your home actually tends to be cleaner than the air inside your home! Yes, you read that right. According to the EPA, indoor air pollution tends to be 2 to 5 times greater than that of outdoor air pollution. Higher air pollution in your home means poor health and poor sleep, which means it's going to be difficult to get up at 5:00 A.M. for that home workout. At Echo Workshop we have partnered with Pure365 to bring you the premiere home air purification systems: the "Super V" Whole House Air Cleaner and the Ultrafine 468 for single room and area purification. When you're breathing cleaner, you're living better.

Improved Wellbeing

There's something else about clean, fresh air that I'm sure you've noticed: it helps you sleep. Ever fall asleep on the beach? On a picnic blanket? I bet you have and that is because fresher air means better sleep. A 2017 study by the American Thoracic Society found that high levels of air pollution over time may get in the way of a good night's sleep, and we all know how terrible we feel and look after a night of restless sleep. With a Pure365 air purification system, you can rest easier and better knowing your home's air quality is safe and pure. Furthermore, with all that sound sleep you'll be getting you'll be looking and feeling younger—and who wouldn't want that? 

Safe at Home

Your home is your sanctuary. A place of safety and security. It is the place where you raise and love your family; it is important to protect them. Echo Workshop can help you ensure your family's safety and health for years to come by finding the air purification system that is right for your home. According to the first WHO Global Conference on Air Pollution and Health young children and elderly adults are most at risk for health problems related to air pollution, especially indoors. The Super V Whole House Air Cleaner from Pure365 utilizes technology that is currently used by hospitals and the military. It's patented DFS (Disinfecting Filtration System) technology deactivates mold, viruses, fungi, and bacteria all the way down to 0.007 micron, which is smaller than most viruses! It also helps to reduce harmful gases and odors. With an air purification system in your home, you'll never have to worry about whether the air your family breathes is safe because you'll know it is.

You work hard to provide the best life for you and your family. You deserve clean, pure, safe air to breathe at the home you have built for them. This Respiratory Care Week, let our home customization experts at Echo Workshop help you choose the air purification system that is right for you and your family.
