Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Building code concerning fireplace heat in California (and I believe the United States as a whole) states that a minimum of 2 inches between the TV and flue is needed to protect it from heat.

COASTROAD Hearth & Patio
The gas logs in the fireplace above are made by Rasmussen. You can check them out here:

If you want an "open hearth" like shown above, the most logical thing to do is to build a woodburning fireplace and add gas logs. There is a little bit of a trick to supporting the weight from above without a corner post, but there are ways to do it. If the project is for an existing house, there are also ways to create a lightweight masonry fireplace that will not require any additional foundation.

If you think you might be able to stand some glass, Ortal makes some direct-vent corner fireplaces that use proprietary technology to join the glass in the corner:

What is the tv sitting on? Pullout? Swivel? - Does the tv sit on a pullout shelf and does it swivel?

Can you create a corner fireplace by wrapping around centred one - We have a traditional centre opening flush rock fireplace with a built in heatilator fan system that is now unused as the previous owners put in an ugly gas insert that is innefective. I would like to modernize but want efficiency and love the look of the corner two sided fireplaces. Is there any way to customize to get the modern look and effective less messy gas heat by using the existing chimney as a vent and to use fan heater system would be a bonus.

Love the lines on this fireplace and the material - I love the proportions and would like something similar for my home, though the fireplace would not be on a wall corner. I would appreciate if you could give me the dimensions of the fireplace frame, including height, width and thickness of the metal. Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Industrial Chic Hearths
This fireplace is a sleek inclusion into a natural space. Discretion reigns here, with the almost-hidden TV and the low and subtle shelf below the fireplace.
Shane D. Inman added this to 8 Artfully Asymmetrical Fireplaces
Cutting corners. Extending the fireplace opening just slightly around a corner makes a big visual impact and helps to spread heat to the rest of this room. Tip: Use tile instead of stainless steel for the band for a much more traditional look.
