Now you see it, now you don't

One of the fastest growing crazes in interior design is hiding your television. The first televisions were housed in cabinets, you opened the doors and all huddled round. Then they became a thing to flaunt, showing that you had the money spend.

These cumbersome objects have given way to slimline plasma screens and once again history has repeated itself and we're hiding them out of sight. This may also be due to the rise in house theft; leaving expensive all singing, all dancing televisions on display when you're not at home is an open invitation for many thieves. Or maybe we're hiding them because we don't want to admit to guests or ourselves that we've become a nation of telly addicts! Whatever the reasons designers have found some ingenious ways to hide televisions. Wide shallow fireplace on a brown wall, with dark brown and orange wall art above the fire
