January 9, 2012Mid-Century Modern Ways To Hide A Home Entertainment System, From Fisher’s 1964 Handbook
I don’t know about you guys, but I am always slightly puzzled about where to put modern electronics when I am trying to figure out the layout in our rooms. I love electronics (which is kind of odd, considering my love of vintage things) and Tom and I are always trying to subtlety work them into our rooms.
But no worries. Fischer is here to help us out, in 1964-style.
I know, I know, this is a guide for stereo equipment and you want to find a place to slot in a huge TV. I know this. However, I thought the ideas in here would be good for people who need to plan a place for modern electronics in a retro room as well as those who’ve scored a sweet vintage stereo.
If nothing else, you could enjoy the pictures!
I mean, come on. Look at these built-ins. Aren’t they gorgeous??? And I could totally see them cleverly hiding a mountain of cords and boxes and still being able to showcase a TV in the center.
There is a lot to like in this picture. Once again, a great set of built-ins that could work just as well for modern equipment as it does for that awesome stereo. Also, the carpet is sweet.
How about this coolness? There are doors hidden in the paneled wall that pop open and contain all your records/CDs/hard-drives.
Another set of awesome built-ins, another great storage idea.
LOVE this set up! I’ll even take that light, please.
Finally, probably the most feasible (and cheapest) way to store everything; hide it all in a closet that closes.
What did I tell you?? Pure. Genius.
