When it comes to buying a TV, function should always trump form, but that doesn't mean you want to be stuck with a great performing flat screen that sits in an ugly frame. While televisions these days come in relatively unobtrusive cases, sometimes that black (or even white) frame just stands out like a sore thumb. Here are some options if you're looking to frame your boob tube with something that matches more closely with your décor.
- Phyllis Morris offers a made to order ornate frame for flat screens.
- Frame My TV has a few different options, including an AcoustiMat that conceals built-in speakers and hand carved period frames from Eli Wilner & Company.
- HD Envy offers a line of various frames made of either wood, a leather-like material, or metal laminate. They also accept custom orders.
- Todd Manring, who sells his wares on Etsy, will custom design and build a frame for you depending on what you're looking for.
