Designer's Dilemma


Even interior designers are forced to work within the limitations of their own residences.

You know the drill.  You'd love to arrange your room "this way" but the combination of your existing furnishings and the door or window openings on your walls just won't allow it.  One designer's problem was their bulky TV/entertainment center in a tiny living room.  You have to have a TV and, in the case of designer/blogger Erin Loechner, her husband just had to have crystal audio clarity to go along with a superb picture.  Frankly, she didn't care as long as she could see it and hear it.  Here's how she put it:

Televisions and entertainment centers are often the biggest eyesores in any space, and our bulky, ten-year-old TV was certainly no exception.... Still, it was functional and I happen to live with a man who would marry function if he could. Me? I choose form to a fault.

But how do you get sparkling quality like that while hiding ugly speakers and (worse) speaker wire?  After all, most set-ups usually involve some sort of cabinet that houses speakers with a screen to mask their appearance.  But when you're dealing with a small space, ANY kind of built-in just gobbles up precious space.

Here's their flatscreen installed. The speakers? BEHIND the viewing screen.




Here's the solution they came up with...replace it all with the Bose VideoWave, a 46" LCD flatscreen with speakers built-in but nowhere to be seen!  That's because the speakers are actually located behind the TV viewing screen, so no ugly speakers in every corner of the room and no messy wiring.  Despite their location, the speakers produce brilliant sound.  Plus the single remote control not only controls the TV and sound but her iPod and Blu-Ray as well.  So "goodbye" remote control clutter!
