Copper. I love copper in almost any application but I think it’s especially slick on a fireplace. One of my favorite attributes of copper is the way its finish changes over time. Copper is not only a beautiful facing choice but a conversation piece in any room. $5.000 to $8.000 for materials fabrication and installation.

Steel. Most areas require a specified width of a noncombustible material for a fireplace surround and hearth. (Check your local codes for details.) A steel facing certainly fits that requirement. A custom application that feels rustic and modern steel is a great look. From $5.000 to $8.000 for raw materials custom fabrication and installation.

Lulu & Georgia had me at royal blue. Its Florence ottoman provides a killer pop of color and a dash of glam for a bedroom or living space.

Sometimes the best way to deal with these two focal points is to separate them. This design makes great use of an angled wall while still making it easy to enjoy the fireplace and the TV at the same time. Connect your fireplace mantel visually to the main shelving. In a design like the one shown here you also could carry over all three shelves to create a triple mantel.

Create a large accent wall. A small fireplace can make a big impact when it's surrounded by an accent wall. This dynamic mosaic emphasizes the fireplace as a focal point.

Ottoman coffee tables. Most well-made ottomans are solid enough to be used as coffee tables - and not just in an emergency! Many use their ottoman as a coffee table period! Your ottoman is usually lower in height than your chair or sofa and is perfect as a coffee table. Some ottomans have a shelf under the top that can be used to store magazines so apart from being upholstered they are more table-like than ottoman-like!

A square ottoman looks great with a sectional that has equal lengths on both sides as well as U-shape sofas.

On specialized media cabinets each piece is designed for functionality. A grill below the TV is situated for a five-channel home-theater audio system; this is where the center speaker sits. Using a screen rather than wood allows sound to flow unobstructed.

Quite interestingly the term is derived from the French word 'ottomane' which is the feminine version of ottoman. The word could have also been derived from the Italian 'Ottomano' Medieval Latin 'Ottomanus' Medieval Greek 'Othomanoia' from Arabic 'Utmani'. Ottoman was also the name of an empire of the late 16th century.
