Televisions being exposed in a room are no longer the fashion faux pas they once were as we embrace technology in 21st century design. Leading manufacturers have created thin, classically simple electronic components that can be incorporated into most any décor. In our own home, we have hung a flat panel television over an 18th century sideboard and yet another over a 19th century settee with beautiful results.
However, if you would rather not have your television exposed, there are stylish ways to disguise it. Many companies offer this type of product. See below for a small sampling, and to get an idea of what is available, visit links to my vendors.
