    Yes, it was expensive but mostly because we rewired for surround sound. We are super happy with it though. We can control out heat/air, lights, and security system while we travel. Plus we don't have to look at or try to hide components within the room.

    You really need to go to a technician as there are so many options now. We no longer have to deal with boxes, wires and everything in the same place. We have been let out of prison, but please do contact a specialist or 2 first.

    Thank you for your interest, but the homeowner provided this item, and we don't have any information about it.

    This was a Crate and Barrel purchase by the homeowner - but several year ago.

    Check out FLOR carpet tiles - they have so many different colors and patterns and you can create your own rug.

    The wiring is hard wired in the wall, with the cable box and associated electronic hidden in a cabinet with a false back. Another idea is to have a custom "mantle" made that is actually a slim cabinet that houses the electronics and sits above the fireplace or under the television. It's sleek and can be in place of a mantle like you see in the photo above.

    The owner purchased them prior to the remodel, but look at Crate and Barrel furniture or American Leather - they both have similar choices and a great assortment of fabrics / leathers.

    There is a number of companies that can create a slab mantel like this from concrete, including SOLUS:

    Generally speaking, a mantel like this has a recess in the back to allow it to be installed over a cleat attached to the wall framing. Like you mentioned, the tiles are easy compared to that.
  • simkin1234
    Thank you! Great source of information for this mantel.

    People ask this question all the time - if the room isn't too hot for you to sit in, then it's not too hot for the TV either.

    I agree with @bepsf with some additional comments. The answer is Yes. No. Maybe.
    Electronic microcomponents don't like it to get over 150 degrees. The area directly over a fireplace, particularly an unvented gas fireplace (worst case scenario), can easily get to 200 degrees or more.
    If you look at the warranty information for the television, I think you will find that it says not to install it close to a heat source. So you're out of luck if the TV quits under warranty.
    That being said, about 3/4 of the fireplaces we install have TVs over them, and we haven't had a problem in years. If you keep the fireplace a respectable distance away, and especially if you use traditional proportions with a non-combustible surround and mantel, you shouldn't have any issues.
    Where you end up getting into a dangerous area is when the TV is dropped as closely as possible to the fireplace, without any surround or mantel in between. I've seen the plastic trim melt right off of the TV in an instance like that. The TV still worked, though, surprisingly.

    Looks like it could be Dunn Edwards' Waffle Cone, DE5444 and Luna Pier, DE5888. Great combination!
  • babelko
    It looks as if the wall colors were pulled from the colors in the rug. Buy yourself a professional paint deck from your favorite paint manufacturer. It's well worth the investment.

    The color of the ceiling is actually decorator white - Benjamin Moore. It looks darker due to the blue wall reflecting it's color upwards.

    This item was owner provided, so we don't know where they obtained it. What we do know is many of their furnishings came from Crate and Barrel Furnishings and were custom made.

                It's no secret that people want to be cozy. This room's large sectional, soft blanket, and roaring fireplace looked to plenty of us like the perfect spot to curl up.

                This is a warm and cozy place to watch a movie with everyone. To see detailed examples of sectionals and their components, check out this page from Pottery Barn. How do you use sectionals in your house?

                This is a place I where I would really like to settle in and watch a lot of TV. Everything in the room is oriented to the set.
