Retro-stylish HDTVs could cause rift in space/time continuum

TVs have come out of the console in the past few decades, with the sleek flat panels hung over fireplaces, built into walls and generally flaunting their ultra-thinness. But if you're someone who, for example, likes to immediately put your high-tech cellphone into a case that expresses your own personal style, Halden-Caviglia TV sets might appeal to you.

You can choose a screen between 42 inches and 65 inches in a variety of Art Deco and American Craftsman styles, and the company offers niceties such as an IR repeater so your remote can effectively communicate with the TV through all of this would, the ability to mount this thing on the wall, and a special ventilation system to keep things cool.

If these retro-style cabinets look expensive, that's because they are. Depending on screen size and options, this little touch of deco-decadence will cost you somewhere between $7,495 and $11,495. Any of these TVs would look magnificent in an Art Deco home theater, but for that kind of coin, you might be better off just leaving your new HDTV at its sexiest: stark naked.
