Would an Off Center Television Drive You Bonkers?

Would an Off Center Television Drive You Bonkers?

In general we're fine with small television sets or even not having one at all in the living room. But what about mounting it off-center from the main viewing area? That's what this homeowner did, working around the height issue and position of her fireplace. How would this sit with you from a viewer's perspective?

We've seen this type of solution before (above). The flat panel set is situated at the right of the viewing area, mounted onto a swing arm that swivels so it can be positioned for viewing when needed and returned back when not in use, alleviating cramped neck syndrome. Although we appreciate this setup and it reduces the television being the center of attention, we still wonder if sitting sideways on our sofa all the time could be more of a headache than it's worth.

How do you feel about the set up? Would it be easier to relocate the set to another room altogether? Do you like the off-center look or would you prefer your set to be front and center at all times? How about in the corner? Let us know below and check out the rest of this home over at Robert & Michelena's Modern-Bohemian Fusion house tour over at Apartment Therapy!
