Aint no shame in your game?  Flaunt that new, state of the art boob tube and incorporate it into a gallery wall.

Architect, James Wagman, designed this built-in entertainment unit that folds the TV into itself when it's not being viewed.

Very smart!

Designer, Kelly Giesen, is responsible for this genius, built-in idea.

 Rather than mounting the TV above the mantel, she built it into the non-operable fireplace, at a more ideal viewing height. It is also much less noticeable.

She did it again in a bedroom and added a beautiful mirrored screen to conceal the TV when not in use.

Don't like to look at the TV when it's not on? Install something in front of it, that slides away when its viewing time.
