It isn't tile. The entire lower portion below the mantle, including the hearth, is stainless steel with a custom patina to look like copper.

Those are maple wood and they are stained, not painted.

The cabinetry on either side of the TV is wood done by a professional cabinet maker. The curved header on the ceiling was a fairly tricky installation. Bottom cabinetry on either side of the fireplace is wood sheathed in steel on the doors..

This is not a surround sound system. There are two speakers mounted just below the mantel. You can see them in the photo. The sub woofer is in the cabinet below. This client has a home theater room elsewhere in their home, so this is for casual TV watching. When they want the whole theater experience they go to their media room.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to The Right Built-ins for Your Fireplace
What: These built-ins were designed to accommodate the needs of a family. The TV was in an oversized niche, and all the components were sitting in there too, so it looked cluttered. The children spend a lot of time in this room, so storage for toys was needed. And open display shelving for decorative accents was desired.How: The TV niche was resized to fit the TV precisely. An articulating arm allows it to be pulled forward to reach cables. Below the mantel are cabinets behind doors that are so minimal, you don't even realize they're there. The cabinets hide the components for the TV on one side and the children's toys on the other. Glass shelves were chosen for display to allow maximum light throughout the display area.Style: This family room is part of a great room with the kitchen on the other end. To make it blend with the kitchen, we used the same color of stain on the wood as in the kitchen cabinetry. We wanted clean lines and a more minimal look, so the mantel and hearth as well as the header above stretch wall to wall. To balance the larger TV with the smaller fireplace, we used the same material to cover the the entire bottom portion of the cabinetry and the hearth to give the area below the mantel enough visual weight to offset the larger TV. Lighting below the mantel shows off the copper-patina steel and also gives the lower half more visual weight.

love the curved shape of the mantel but would need it smaller, just stretching a few inches wider than the TV and our linear fireplace, with a shallower hearth also; I like the glass shelves with lighting above but we'd need cabinets below (finished in veneer cerejeira crotch wood)
