What Houzz contributors are saying:
Lind stripped the fireplace of its original painted brick and colonial-style mantel, adding materials that correspond elsewhere in the house: patinated steel, black granite and a poured concrete hearth that's cantilevered out. The TV cabinets follow the same approach, appearing to hover over the floor. The same cherry from the kitchen is used here, as are more stained MDF panels. A bank of backlit glass cabinets at the top nod to a nearby breakfast area that's similarly detailed.
