Built-In Media Niches

April 18th, 2017 · 1 Comment

It was popular in the 1990s and early 2000s to create massive built-in entertainment centers or media niches. Back in the day when TVs were narrower and also when big TVs were very deep. But nowadays, most of these media niches are functionally obsolete. Today’s TVs are wider and shallow.

Are they selling the car or the house?

170414c

Same house as above photo and same poor quality.
