Great design. What is the angle of the tv/corner bookshelf? - We'll be building a brand new house soon and will be faced with the dilemma of where to mount the tv. We do not want to mount it above the fireplace (dislike looking up), nor do we want to mount it on the wall directly across from the windows (where the loveseat is in this picture) as we'd lose valuable seating space. Your bookshelf in the corner is an excellent solution to our problem! What is the angle of the bookshelf from the wall with the fireplace (45, 30, etc)? Are the cabinet doors in the corner the same width as the other side of the fireplace. Thanks so much!
