Having a great television set in your home is one of life’s little joys. It’s the source of many hours of entertainment through programmes, movies and sports. When you think about it, you’ve most likely viewed some of the most memorable moments in history through your television set.
With this in mind, it makes sense to pick a set that’s equal to the stature of such moments. It also makes sense that it should look absolutely awesome placed there in your lounge, like a beacon of style and technological wizardry. Here’s Elysium Magazine’s pick of the most gorgeous models for your tele-visual persuasion.
Bang & Olufsen Chanterelle
The Danes of Bang & Olufsen have a knack of getting the design aspect spot on, and with the Chanterelle they’re raising that bar higher. This is actually a limited edition BeoVision 10-46 in a glossy warm brown colour. The LED-based LCD screen is crisp and sharp, while the four speaker system fills the room with sound. Although not 3D capable, it’s good looks helps get past that issue. If you fancy one of these, better hurry as there is only 500 available. If you miss the limited edition model, rest assured that you can still get the BeoVision 10 – which looks equally stunning and available in three sizes – 32, 40 and 46 inch screens.
Price: From £4,200

Something For The Future
Whilst we were looking at what is available now, we couldn’t help ourselves when we heard rumours about what was coming in the future. One of the more impressive rumours doing the rounds comes from Haier and their invisible organic screen. Imagine a TV with edges so thin and an organic screen that is so transparent that it disappears before your eyes when it is switched off – the future indeed.
Price & Availability: TBA
