A Television In The Bedroom… On An Easel!

The television-in-the-bedroom debate continues, both on Apartment Therapy and in my own mind, but when I saw this flatscreen television mounted on a monumental easel I just thought, "Oooh...."

The starkly, cleanly beautiful Manhattan home of Adam Gordon and Kristina O'Neal was featured in February's World of Interiors, and honestly, I want to live there.

Floor to ceiling windows! Floorboards from a gin factory! A perfect bathtub IN the bedroom! And of course, also in the bedroom, a grand television that has been transformed from everyday electronic device into something timeless and industrial. The juxtaposition of sturdy, serious wood and high-tech flatscreen reminds me of the series Firefly. (Oh my gosh, can you imagine watching Firefly in that bedroom, in that tub? That's the dream.) I especially appreciate that the easel is on wheels, allowing you to reposition the television, or stow it away in a closet when not in use. That prevents the television from being a constant presence, and makes watching a show or a movie more of a choice, a special event. The tub helps, too...
