Leon Speakers Acquires Media Decor
Leon Speakers Enhances its Position in the Home Entertainment Space with Media Decor's TV Concealment Solutions
Leon Speakers today announced it has acquired Media Decor, a company based in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and a leading manufacturer of elegant, high quality concealment products, including art lifts and moving art. The acquisition expands Leon's portfolio of high end, custom-tailored loudspeakers with beautiful TV enhancement solutions, providing new commercial and residential business opportunities for AV integrators and custom installation professionals.
Ultra-thin and oversized TVs have dramatically changed the audiovisual landscape inside the most design-sensitive rooms, making traditional integration methods insufficient to provide clients with custom, designer-friendly solutions. Big TVs require big sound, and both require a lot of real estate, which is often dictated by design consultants, architects and end users. The acquisition of Media Decor adds a team with deep ties to the design community and will accelerate Leon's vision of blending art with audio and technology with design. With world-class custom audio solutions, and now elegant TV enhancement options, integrators will benefit by having better solutions for more spaces, all with Leon's signature style.
The Edge - a collaboration of Leon and Media Decor
"For more than ten years, we have enjoyed a great partnership with Media Decor," said Noah Kaplan, President and Founder of Leon Speakers. "The more we worked together in the custom space, the more it became clear that our companies had a lot in common - we are both committed to providing the highest quality, custom tailored solutions to help conceal technology in the modern home. In this way, Media Decor is more like a category, and we are confident that the suite of products that we will be launching through this channel will help facilitate interactions with architects, designers and end users."
Media Decor brings expert knowledge in concealment technology that not only hides large flat screen displays, but also contributes to the room décor. Furthermore, with Lutron as a long-time partner, Media Decor has an expansive reach throughout the custom installation industry, which will further enhance Leon's overall network of designers, architects, dealers and integrators.
"Recently, we partnered with Leon Speakers to design a new product - The Edge," said Jonathan Graham, President of Media Decor. "More than anything else, we learned that between our two companies, we could offer a unique combination of sophisticated design, elegant craftsmanship and high quality audio to any entertainment space. We are looking forward to working with Leon and their partners to bring these and new revolutionary product designs to the foreground of our industry."
Under the terms of the agreement, Media Decor's manufacturing and operations will remain in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Individual instructions will be delivered to suppliers and customers of the two firms to ensure a smooth transition.
