Can’t decide whether to keep your living room classy with a smaller flat screen or to go big with a projection screen? Milan-based furniture company Acerbis has developed a slick TV wall unit concept that makes both options possible. In its standard position, the wall unit contains a standing flat screen that you could use for watching the morning news. Press a button, however, and a large projection screen pops up in front of the flat panel. Money for watching sports or movies. Want one for your house? They’re available in a variety of configurations through Acerbis.
According to the company, “this flat panel TV cabinet was custom designed and carved in relief for a contemporary bedroom. It includes a remote controlled lift mechanism and the TV can be left on while the cabinet is closed to provide a colorful light show through the translucent stone.”
Although the carving is a little gaudy, even for our tastes, the light show concept is pretty slick. Hook up your own custom design through Advent.
If you are looking for a quick way to give a baller look to your bedroom, the Cube motorized TV cabinet should do the trick. The only downside is that you’ll have to drop $25 g’s to bring this clean modern TV cabinet home. For the price, we’d expect it to have room for a larger flat screen. But for price, we’d also probably drop a 103-inch plasma from the ceiling.

Coming this November, home theater products company Runco International will be dropping its CineWall CW-95HD, the world’s first 95-inch, High Definition 2.35:1 aspect ratio, in-wall display. The super wide, self-contained CineWall throws off an incredibly high-quality image, even with a great deal of ambient light, allowing you to bring your home theater screen into your living room or any other room with windows. At 33-inches deep, Runco’s 95″ CineWall isn’t quite a flat screen, but has been designed to fit into tight spaces nevertheless. The CineWall is projected to retail for approximately $50,000.
A 103″ plasma in itself is pretty baller. Add a drop-down and 180-degree rotation system and we’re talking about a whole different level of cool. As the video above shows, the 500-pound plasma descends from a soffit (overhang) and can then be rotated up to 180 degrees once in the viewing position. Perfect for concealing a big screen in your formal room and making your TV visible from multiple rooms in your crib.
