I am that person who hates having electronic things on display. I hated our DVD player constantly being seen under the tv, and was more than happy to get rid of it when we got our Apple TV. Plus we never used it.
I saw this in Home Beautiful the other week, and have decided it HAS to go in our new house. I love how it has built in storage in those beautiful drawers, no wires, and no ugly DVD player. See those silver rectangles above the drawers? Those my friends, are made from mesh, and according to owner Jenny "were an practical choice as much as an aesthetic one: The mesh panels were incorporated so that the remote controls can "talk" to the entertainment equipment". OMG, how ingenious is that!
Jenny has a beautiful home, that has many clever things about it, but that was the awesome idea I have ever heard of. I may even consider buying a dvd player for our new house now
