Francesca DiMattio's Eclectic Media Room

Francesca DiMattio is an artist living in New York City. She and her husband share a beautiful apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan. Their space is filled with vintage finds, including a Sansui sound system from the '70s and some very large wooden speakers flanking their flat screen TV.

Francesca's husband built a simple white box for the Sansui stereo. The box allows the sound system to float above the floor like the rest of their media peripherals do.

Even though the large wooden speakers dwarf the flat screen, there's something so interesting about pairing them up side-by-side to show how technology's form factor has changed over the decades. Plus those blasters are so beautiful with their lacquered wood grain. They become beautiful floating shelves that can also pump up the jams.
