So it was with great joy I read this story in the New York Times. True, the article is really a profile of a clothing designer’s apartment and how it has morphed over three decades of cringe inducing trends. The one constant being the designer’s love of television, and the screen remains a central focus in the living space.

TVs aren’t hidden or celebrated. The screens and home audio equipment that accompany them are placed thoughtfully for easy viewing. Furniture is comfortable and attractive and rooms serve the function they were meant to. Home theater hat doesn’t look like a man cave. It’s a welcome way to usher in the New Year.

Check out a slide show of the entire apartment here.

    I love the Kloss Novabeam in the B&W photo. We used to have one at the office but somehow it got tossed when we moved locations.
