When the TV isn't worthy of its stand

A circular design from Italy, of course.

Another designer has lived up to the fine sense of Italian aesthetics, which we've seen applied increasingly to home media furnishings. The latest example comes from Bonaldo in the form of a new twist--quite literally--on displaying a plasma or LCD TV with its "Swivel TV Stand."

But it's the striking circular design that will get your attention as much as its practical mobility. The stand's black lacquered frame is supported by a chrome base, according to Trendir, providing a "fantastic way to soften the harsh, square corners" of the television set and accompany component boxes, which can be stored below. The only problem: We'd be afraid to turn on the TV for fear of getting some idiotic show that would ruin the whole effect.
