DIY home decor inspiration - upcycled half table. Once again, I couldn't find the original source for this, but it looks French design by Astier de Vilatte, so I'd recommend checking that out, or making your own!
Great idea for hiding the TV could work in any decor Fireplace or not! A sliding wall above the fireplace (a ventless model from Hearth Cabinet) conceals the television. Hide the TV in a variation on this theme?
