HAMILTON, ON - A line of motorized TV cabinetry that raises and lowers cabinets and television screens has won Canadian cabinetmaker Activated Decor a spot on a business launch reality show.

Lusso Living, and its affiliate, Activated Decor, retrofit kitchen cabinets and closets with motorized lifts to put the cabinet box within easy reach of homeowners with limited mobility - those aging in place, wheel-chair bound, or any individual challenged to reach or lift at awkward angles. Easy Reach brand lifts can be retrofit to existing cabinets and closets, or built into new cabinets.

In April, Activated Decor launched and unveiled its latest offering: solid wood furniture built from hand-selected, kiln dried hardwoods. Activated says its new Tuscany and Rouge Valley lines of TV lift cabinets are crafted with old world craftsmanship. Clients can choose their stain and hardware to suit their tastes. The company, represented by principal Peter Rupcic, is competing with other start-ups in a competition in Hamilton, ON.

Each piece is built-to-order to accommodate plasma flat screen, or LCD flat screen tv into furniture. Activated Decor says it builds its own brackets, electronics and motorized platforms to provide a higher level of performance and quality than third party hardware offers.
