Artful Ways to Display a Television

Artful Ways to Display a Television

Love them or loathe them, the flat screen TV is part of the domestic landscape. Here are four clever suggestions for integrating one into your life.

Morla’s art studio doubles as a den for her teen girls with a TV propped on her easel (a flower pot accommodates the rest of the electronics).

Love all of them, too many homes put emphasis on these huge screens and let them dominate the atmosphere, which I absolutely detest... small and inconspicuous, to me, is still the best!

Love the looks, the first one is amazing, a tv-screen frame! But the tv on the easel makes me wonder how high the sitting places are to watch tv... doesn't look really comfortable

I'm going to have to do something like this when I finally buy a flat screen tv.

What I would really love is a home theater but that is for my dream house. Right now I am just concentrating on making the miniscule place I currently call home much more livable.

Our flat screen shares wall space with paintings as in the photograph, but I love the idea of the easel and the flower pot to contain the usual spaghetti junction.

Nice ideas, but I don´t need a tv at all.
