    I don't mind good looking tv's, I find 60" to be big but have one in my study. I have a smaller tv on my main floor that is much nicer looking and slightly smaller, also sits more flush to the wall.

    The roll down screen could be really cool, but I would not normal put a painting over a credenza, so I'm ok to just show the TV.

    Can find some really really nice stuff at consignment stores and on craigslist if you are patient and know what to look for.

    What style?




    It works surprisingly well on large walls as well, in a tight space I would use a floor stand.

    That does look pretty cool, but it's a noticeably odd place to hang a mirror so I'm not sure you're really achieving much. A more natural place for a mirror would be over the fireplace but that would be way too high for a TV. I hate TVs hung over fireplaces, too high to watch comfortably unless you're in a neck brace and ugly.

    TVs are almost always mounted too high. The center of the TV should be level with the viewer's eyes. This is especially important with big TVs and LCDs in general which tend to have limited viewing angles.

    TV over fireplace is a Golden Standrd of modern design! Next thing you'd say :"Stainless steel appliances are not cool".
    Some Co. has to come up with a good way of hiding these screens. Some motorised contraption that covers TV with a painting or a light wall panel. Added problem of these screens is that they are all BLACK and thus brake any room when not in use.

    We can't see the rest of the room, so it's a guessing game whether or not it's the best place in the room or not.

    On the plus side, I think most people have figured out, by now, if I hadn't said it, that it would have been good, the idiot, that fireplace isn't a TV floor and he went and did it anyway but there was none.

    I dunno...I think that is a pretty awkward height to have a mirror no matter what. If you were adult-height and walking from the other side of the room and passing through that doorway, you would pretty much just be staring at a reflection of your crotch the whole time.

    They should get a vintage Danish TV. It's part of the exciting vintage Danish life.

    It's in Stockholm, Sweden, so that would have to be an ikea box and not a B&O ;)

    Based on the pictures alone, I assume that it's placed so it fits when you are seated (the mirror).

    Thanks for the thoughts...hard to specify what style. We are more likely to order something than wait for consignment/thrift finds. Have tried some local searching, but no such luck.
