So often TVs are installed far too high as people tend to place them where they look best from a standing position forgetting that they will actually be viewed while sitting down. Placing your TV at a proper low angle helps take your eyes off it the rest of the time especially if you tuck it under some shelves painted in a fun hue. Dark floors or a dark rug will help it visually sink away into the ground where it won’t be noticed until it’s TV time.

Let it spin. Metal chimney technology also allows the fireplace to be a floating object unconnected to the ground. The Fireorb by architect Doug Garofalo takes the prefab metal fireplace to a whole new level. Allowing a 360-degree rotation this is a fireplace that can be placed anywhere in a space — it's like something out of The Jetsons.

Media walls generally look best if they echo the architecture of the home. Cabinetmaker True studies the trim throughout the house and runs matching base and crown molding across the front of the built-in. He’s also fond of incorporating fluted pilasters and arches when appropriate to break up the unit’s rectilinear lines.

To be functional an ottoman's height should precisely match the height of the sofa or chair that you will occupy while using it. Ottomans should be chosen in consideration of those who will most use them. For some a light ottoman will provide all the support needed. For others a larger wider piece is a better choice.

Moroccan poufs are a dime a dozen these days but this lime-green one from Serena & Lily stands out from the crowd for obvious reasons. Or choose another bold color to take a room from blah to brilliant.

Avoid architectural features. The flue can also bend and be rerouted to avoid architectural features such as overhangs. Again (this can't be stressed enough) follow the building codes and manufacturer specifications when doing any chimney installation.

I love this yellow quilted piece. It's got a Mies Barcelona vibe brightened by vibrant color that's a fantastic fit with the white room and gorgeous view. This is a great example of how one low piece of furniture can add a whole new aesthetic dimension to a space.

Optional seating. Whether it is styled in the form of a box or a chair on short legs an ottoman is upholstered and can be used as a seat. Perhaps not as comfortable as an armchair but sufficient as an emergency or alternative seating option in your home during parties or when a crowd of friends descend upon you. It can be stored away under a table and pulled out when needed - or rolled out if your ottoman is fitted with casters.

Tuck away your TV. While a drop-down projector screen is great it doesn’t get much more impressive than an entire drop-down TV. No matter its weight or angle an experienced professional can mount a television wherever you want it. This is another option for those who want to make a seamless transition from dinner party to film night. When the after-dinner conversation reaches a natural lull you can adjourn to the living room and relax with the latest Hollywood hit or cult classic.
