Location: Philadelphia, PA
A/V or Home Office: A no V
The Crate and Barrel outlet in Cranbury, NJ is a good option for those in the tri-state area. New items arrive every Wednesday. Unsold items are marked down another 10% every Monday, up to a certain point. Make a wedding registry and receive 10% off.
PS: Yes, that's an Apartment Therapy book on my shelf.
What inspired you?
I don't watch TV, so I call my submission "A no V". I was inspired by the Bose SoundDock, but daunted by the price. Music is integral to my life, so I wanted to find a way to enjoy the sound and express some individuality.
I hooked my iPod up to Monsoon flat-panel speakers, which fill the room with a rich sound. I added some personality with a mini-bookshelf from Crate and Barrel and tucked the wires under a lavender-colored candle from Target. 'Luminary Bliss', a print from Anti-Girl, hangs on the wall. I discovered the artist on Apartment Therapy!
