Please excuse those unsightly cords, I plan to remedy that soon enough.
A while back I came across this television in Sacramento. I thought it might be a good conversion project for our friend Justin of Stellar Electronics. Justin said he liked the tv, so I offered to pick it up. But, once I picked it up I fell in love with it! It was so clean and even had the original floor stand.
I asked Justin if he would be interested in a conversion trade for our 1960 GE conversion that he completed for us sometime back. Luckily, he agreed. The General Electric conversion was dynamite, but this style TV works better with our decor.
This television is now in our guest bedroom. I refinished the cabinet to match the Franklin Shockey bedroom set in the room. It all looks so fantastic together.
These are nondescript corner speakers. I plan to replace the fabric on both of them with something atomic. I’ll also refinish them in the champagne Heywood Wakefield toner sold by Jeff at Needful_Useful_Things on eBay.
These are the corner mount wall speakers that Mel and I picked up to complement the Sylvania. I plan to rewire them and get them hung in time for the up and coming Sacramento Mid-Century Modern Home Tour.
Justin also added more modern connectivity to the back of the set.
Of course, this is what these televisions are known for, the ring of light on the front. I am so glad we have a Halo in our collection now. This is such a unique television.
This television has a pleasing glow and has multiple setting for the brightness of the surround.
We had this fantastic asian television lamp that I knew would look great on this set. The whole idea of the Halo television was to make tv lamps obsolete, but I couldn’t help myself.
I plan to just have a DVD player hooked up to it so guests can watch any of the classic movie flicks we have in our collection.
This was the last piece of furniture to add to this room. I couldn’t be more pleased with the look of this room.
