People spend a lot of time talking about how good a picture their TV has and how much better they want the picture of their next TV to be. But not a lot of time is spent talking about what the TV itself should look like. Considering that a it's placed into, discussing what it will look like and how it will affect the room's decor should be a no-brainer. But it's not.
The reason for this is very 20th Century -- after all, it wasn't until the appearance of the flat panel that there was any choice in having a TV NOT be big and cumbersome. But once "thin" became "in" for TVs (i.e., losing the TV's chunky cathode tube), everybody decided that having a meant every TV you could purchase would at least look, if not perform, the same. And that the room the TV got placed in would have to adapt to the TV and that was it.
That kind of thinking was wrong and still is. -- because not every room is the same as every other room. But differences in the TV's physical appearance is more subtle today. So that's why it's time to revisit the choices that can be made.

THE TVs SHAPE
. These televisions have a subtle "bending" at their extremes which is designed to create a more immersive viewing experience. That's when the TV is on. But when it's off, the curved shape attracts and intrigues the eye in a way that "flat" does not. And through placement in a room, can extend this welcoming view to those entering a room, even if the effect does not "shout" out what it's doing. The TV ceases to be a "wall" and can become a positive element of the room's total "look."
