To take a less hypermodern approach place a TV in a full bookshelf system (rather than free-floating minimalist shelves) to create a more transitional look. Encasing the TV in custom framing helps it blend even further into the casework so only the essential screen is visible (and not shiny brand names). Keep in mind that a frame will block the remote receiver so you may need a device to reroute the signal from a receiver tucked on a nearby shelf.

Three’s company. Some may have difficulty combining two main design elements but this homeowner managed to do three. This asymmetrical layout mixes the size of all three pieces (television fireplace and artwork) comfortably into one design by maximizing the height and balancing the width of the wall. When adding artwork above the fireplace do your research before purchasing to make sure it can withstand the heat output.

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!

Modern media centers rather than full-height cabinets to enclose the TV often simply surround the TV with a wall of floating shelves to help visually distract from the screen while adding useful storage (which often would be filled with DVDs in the past but are more often just decorative in the age of streaming).
