Ikea Will Sell Furniture With Integrated TVs, Blu-ray Players & Sound Systems This Fall

Swedish furniture giant Ikea is set to add a new line to its collection this fall named “Uppleva,” which will feature entire home entertainment systems neatly integrated into small, stylish cabinets. The range includes three designs, all of which include an LED smart TV with Wi-Fi, Blu-ray and DVD players, and a 2.1 sound system with a wireless subwoofer.

Like most Ikea furniture, the Uppleva range is fully customizable, allowing you to add additional cabinets, drawers, and other accessories to suit your living room and accommodate additional devices like consoles or set-top boxes. It’s also available in all sorts of different colors to match your wallpaper.

The LED TV is available in a number of sizes, and all are full high-definition at 1080p with a 400MHz refresh rate. They feature four HDMI ports, two USB ports, and one remote controls the entire system — TV, Blu-ray player, and sound system. The tech is built by Chinese manufacturer TCL, which is also known as RCA in the U.S., or Alcatel in Europe.

The range will initially be available in Denmark, France, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden this fall, with a worldwide rollout in spring 2013. The base model is expected to cost SEK 6,500 (approx. $995) and includes a 5-year guarantee as standard.

What do you think of Ikea’s new Uppleva range? Will it make its way into your living room?
