We were originally drawn to this house because of the lifesize Silver Surfer statue hanging from the wall, but the more we read about the living room's set-up the more our eyes bugged out of our head.
Featured in Electronic House, this "Texas industrial deco" space is owned by David Ronn, who also records with his band, Plastic Farm Animals, in the home's built in recording studio. The living room holds a 50-inch Pioneer plasma that's attached to a track. The TV easily slides across the room depending on where you're sitting. An electric window that looks into the sound studio in the next room can be made opaque when the TV is in front of it.

Surround sound blasts from on-wall Sunfire speakers and a center-channel speaker mounted below the plasma.
"Sound reflections from the sustainable bamboo flooring would pose a problem for both the band and home theater sound, so Dallas-based custom studio design firm Suffolk Studio Design added a 1-inch-thick Auralex S-Core cotton-based acoustical wall system all around, with Auralex's Elite fabric stretched over the panels for a smooth look. In addition, Suffolk's custom-made 15-foot-long convex and concave acoustical 'clouds' hang from the ceiling to help absorb, reflect and diffuse the sound." via Electronic House.
