What TV? Eliminating the black box

Finally- we can almost eliminate the elephant in the room, aka: the television. I’m not ready to give up the occasional Seinfeld or necessary weather update- but these solutions for the housing of the television truly do minimize the aesthetic distraction of the “tube” right down to the image on the screen- which is all we really want to see.

Our local “glass & mirror guys” at Carolina Glass & mirror have used this TV Majestic Mirror

(shown below as a mirror, then the tv) with great success on a recent project in downtown Raleigh.

You can also try creating a shallow recessed area in Sheetrock to embed the television into a wall- very neat & clean!

This living room designed by Newell Turner featured in House Beautiful showcases the TV on an easel!
