When reading about the theory of the social object, I found it really interesting that the television set was covered in a cloth and decorated with photos and a vase of artificial flowers. Until about 5 years ago we had an old TV, that was borrowed from our Aunty it was made to look like fake wood and it had its own stand on wheels. We also covered the top with a cloth doily, photos of my great grandma and my brother when he was a baby, along with a vase with real flowers. Though one day my little sister knocked the vase over and the water ran down the back. It still worked but it needed to be dried out with a hairdryer as a little water had got inside.
