Another option to consider is TVCoverUps. Framed art(including your own) or mirror adds to the room's decor and hidden beneath is the TV and Entertainment Consoles.
Available in Automated & Manual Lift and allows for TV tilting hardware.
See how EASY it really is:

The owners had the coffee table so we can't answer this question.

Hi... beautiful room!!We are presently buidling a house and the fireplace and tv are supposed to be similarly placed. I am not sure how far away should the TV be positioned from the fireplace so it does not get too hot? Can you tell me how far they were positioned and what precautions, if any, were taken to protect the tv?

My suggestion would be to talk with your fireplace supplier about the fireplace selected for your home. There are so many different types of fireplaces with different BTU's (heat output) that there really isn't a simple answer. Lineal fireplaces like the one pictured above have generally higher BTU's than firplaces with shorter firelines. Some larger lineal fireplaces have special blowers to reduce the heat output.

Should the TV and the couch not face each other? We have a living room which we are trying to decorate and am facing a dilemma where for the correct viewing distance, the couch and the TV will be on adjacent walls not facing each other. any other way will reduce the viewing distance. Is this arrangement uncomfortable?

I personally have this arrangement in my house and I love it. Aside from being comfortable (for me at least) I like that when the TV is off, it still promotes conversation. I am not of the school of thinking that the TV should dominate the room and all other design decisions be made around it.

Of course it always depends on the client, if you watch TV a lot then this might not be the best arrangement for you. Consider positioning your sofa in front of the TV and flanking the sofa with club chairs, that is another typical arrangement I use a lot.

In regards to viewing distance that is also a personal decision. You need to be comfortable only you can determine that. Good Luck!

Thanks. So does that mean if you want to watch a DVD the DVD player would be in another area/room? Wouldn't that be inconvenient?

More likely, a small closet off the living room (just to the side). As I said, the remote control would work from anywhere (using something like this: http://www.x10.com/automation/pm5900_s.html). Whenever you want to watch a DVD or whatnot, the components will still be in the same room, just in a closet close by.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Living Luxuriously With Nature
The main living area, put together by interior designer Jay Jenkins, of Jenkins Baer Associates, is a practice in casual elegance. The colors and furniture selections flow beautifully with the graphic floor covering from Warp & Weft. The light colors embrace the abundance of natural daylight in the room, and a carefully placed chrome Arco Floor Lamp adds to the warm and open ambiance.
Laura Heller added this to Go Ahead: Embrace Your Home Technology
Living rooms and family rooms are the traditional home for home electronics, and while flat panel TVs and slim components have made it easier to incorporate gadgets into a well-designed room, there are still a lot of challenges. How high is too high to place a TV? Is it safe to mount a screen over the fireplace? (Yes, but don't do it. It's the worst viewing angle possible.) How to arrange seating for optimal viewing and sightlines? And the perennial question of whether or not to hide it all.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Let's Chic-ify the Game Room
This room not only affords plenty of seating, but it’s bright and cheery while reflecting a contemporary color scheme. Not that there’s anything wrong with sectionals or recliners, but I rather like the fact that neither are in sight in this sophisticated space.
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to Today's Recliners Let You Kick Back in Style
A Houzz visitor seeing this photo asked "Where do the TV viewers sit?" The question is a good one. As we saw in previous examples, a recliner placed directly in front of a TV is optimal for viewing purposes. But let me throw something else at you. The recliner you see here can also swivel! So, by providing the flexibility in this one piece of furniture, you can go from watching the outside (and, what a great view) to watching TV or gazing at the fire. What's even more impressive is the elegance in this room. Its subtle palette of creams and blues doesn't compete with the home's natural setting. I'd like to vacation here.

Laura Gaskill added this to Design Solutions for 11 Tricky Spaces
Tricky space 11: High ceilings, big open spaceThe solution: Accent pieces with height (such as the arc lamp featured here) will visually fill the vertical space. Supersize rooms can handle larger-scale furniture, so don't be afraid to go big. A massive dining table made from a natural wood slab with an eye-catching pendant light hung over it would make a dramatic focal point for the room. Create a comfy seating area in another spot by using two facing sofas pulled perpendicular to a wall, and finish the arrangement with a big rug (or even two rugs layered together) to add softness.What is the most challenging space you've ever lived in, and how did you cope?
