Sonos speakers have been designed to look and perform well when sitting on a table or countertop, but there will be times when a room simply lacks the right furniture, or you just want your speakers at a different height or angle.

Both Floyd-designed speaker stands are available in limited quantities from FloydHome.com starting October 14.
