- How Far Should Your Sofa Be From The TV?
There are a series of multiple factors to take into account when deciding where to place a TV, including —but not limited to— the dimensions of both the furniture and the TV, image resolution, height, design, and so on. In this article, we share some recommendations to achieve the comfort and well-being of the users avoiding possible problems of visual fatigue or unfortunate body postures. When it comes to setting the distance between the sofa and the TV, the ideal scenario takes into account the required distances between furniture and the spaces needed for its enjoyment, in order for the setting to achieve its intended purpose and avoid generating great headaches for its users. Firstly, there are two main factors to know when placing the television in your home: the size and the resolution. When talking about the size of a television, you are referring to the length of the screen, diagonally, expressed in inches usually. One inch equals 2.54 cm, therefore, if a TV is 40-inch long, it means that it measures 1.02 meters from one corner to the other. But beyond its size, it is necessary to also know its resolution. The resolution refers to the number of vertical and horizontal lines made up of pixels, displayed on a screen. A noteworthy fact is that when the resolution increases, the pixel density does too; meaning that its sharpness and the detail richness improve, which allows you to sit closer to it while maintaining the same screen size. On the other hand, the lighting and the time of day also have a big influence when choosing the right place to install the TV to achieve a pleasant experience. It is recommended to place the TV on a perpendicular wall to the windows and never in front of the openings. In fact, the goal is to reduce the reflections that could occur without losing the image quality. Moreover, the viewing angle and the standard pixelation threshold are also factors to be considered. A guide developed by the Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers (SMPTE) recommends sitting at a distance that allows the screen to occupy approximately at least 30 degrees of our field of vision. This applies to any type of multimedia content.
- Safes as a Design Object.
Where do you keep your most valuable items? Most frequently, they are strewn around the house, hiding in boxes or drawers so they’re impossible to find when they are needed, or lying out in plain sight where they would make easy pickings for an intruder. Even if these pieces are not particularly valuable it is prudent to consider investing in some appropriate storage that would keep them in one place and out of harm’s way. For someone who only wants to have beautiful things at home, the thought of a typical utilitarian safe lurking conspicuously in the bedroom isn’t very appealing. For attractive safes or secure storage solutions, many style-conscious homeowners and interior designers have turned to WOLF. Currently headquartered in California, the family-run British heritage brand has been producing handcrafted jewellery cases and watch boxes for over 185 years, focusing on premium design and craftsmanship to ensure its products don’t look out of place in high-end interiors. WOLF’s philosophy is based on the belief that it's logical to protect one’s possessions by storing and safeguarding them in a fine quality box. This vision informed the brand’s current motto of ‘Protecting Legacy’, which means creating storage for items that will be passed down through generations. Although some of the safes and winders WOLF manufactures cost more than most of us will spend on jewellery in our entire lives, there are also more affordable options for anyone simply in need of a good-looking box for a favourite souvenir or treasured gift. Anyone fortunate enough to own a high-end automatic watch will know about the importance of storing these precision timepieces correctly. Watch winders simulate the gentle movement of the wrist in order to regularly activate the self-winding mechanism and ensure the watch keeps time when not in use. Most winders simply estimate the number of rotations needed per day, but WOLF's devices can be set to the optimal number of turns for each unique timepiece. View Full article
