Metal. Edgy but old school this firebox surrounded puts an old-world material in a more modern form. Mixing and matching finishes — such as with the raw wood planking metal fireplace and highly lacquered furniture here — feels eclectic and spontaneous.

Media armoires worked great back in the day of analog TVs. Close the doors to hide the electronics and open them to watch. Those were simpler times. But today flat-panel TVs are put on display more often than not. Mounting on walls or being set on top of consoles can actually complicate matters since remote controls typically use infrared signals to communicate with the devices. The little red light needs to be pointed directly at the component to change the channel turn up the audio or pause the movie. A solid surface blocks this communication.

Again asymmetry can be your friend here as placing the TV off to one side in a wide bookcase or pair of cases will keep it from feeling like the visual focal point. Depending on the furniture arrangement this can also leave a TV well-positioned to be watched from a sectional sofa or favorite chair even if it’s off-center from some of the other seats.
