The striking TV fireplace surrounds featured here come from some of the most talented designers in America today . . . . .
Design above by Harrison Design Associates
. . . Creatively conceived and beautifully executed, they are bound to grab your attention!
Pictured at left is a design by Boze-
man, Montana-based Locati Architects -- one of the premier architectural de-
sign firms in the Western United States. The stone surround features a wood mantel shelf and a pair of finely crafted doors just above it to conceal a flat screen TV when not in use. Known, in part, for its monumental rustic stone fireplace designs, a sam-
pling of the firm's extraordinary work can be seen by clicking here.
The next several TV fireplace designs that follow come from Atlanta-based Harrison Design Associates -- another premier
architectural design firm in the United States. Well known for its classically-inspired designs, the craftsmanship and
detailing in each of the firm's projects is absolutely ex-
For example, the design that follows features an alcove or inglenook fire-
place with a great stone arch that echos the detailing of the stone fire-
place surround. Built-in wood shelving for books, AV equipment and art ob-
jects flanks the fireplace. Richly finished board and batten paneling frames a wide screen TV resting on the mantel shelf.
In the TV fireplace design that follows, Harrison Design Associates em-
ployed an elaborately carved stone fireplace mantel as the room's focal point. Note how the arch above the tall glass windows in the room echos the graceful arch over the firebox opening. Above the mantel shelf, a re-
cess or niche in the wall houses -- and frames -- a flat screen TV.

Arts and Crafts inspired design by Harrison Design Associates, pictured below, features a beautiful deep green glazed tile fireplace
round framed by simple pieces of wood that have been stained and fin-
ished to match the cabinetry and coffered ceiling in the room. The simple wood framing extends upward to also "frame" a flat screen TV over the firebox opening.
The richly finished wood fireplace mantel that follows -- also by Harrison Design Associates -- incorporates elements of Art Deco Styling . . . or a contemporized version of it. The dark, rich color of the wood contrasts beautifully with the light stone surround and raised hearth. Centered on the slightly projecting wall above the mantel shelf is a flat screen TV.
The final design from Harrison Design Associates shown here is the striking brick fireplace surround pictured
below. Framed by a stunning arch, the fireplace features a gently curved, raised brick hearth capped by a smoothly
finished hearthstone. Above the firebox opening is a stone mantel shelf with a chiseled finish, supported by two large
stone brackets, or cor-
bels. And simply resting on the stone mantel shelf is a plasma television set with a brushed aluminum frame.
One of the more avant-garde designers whose work is portrayed here is Shane Inman of The Inman Company, based in
Traverse City, Michigan. Pictured in the three images that follow is one of his unique fireplace de-
signs. Soaring to 30 feet in height, it is clad with a board and batten wall treatment from the base of the raised hearth to the top of the ceiling -- the only exception being glazed white tile around the firebox opening.
Built-in cabinetry flanking the fireplace features recessed panel doors and drawer fronts, as well as open shelving
and an alcove to house a flat screen TV on the right. A rather elaborate wood mantel shelf painted in a contrasting
color ties it all together by wrapping around the forward pro-
jecting fireplace and across the front of the built-in cabinetry on either side. And finally, for even more contrast and visual appeal, an organic grouping of naturally formed tree branches appears to sprout from the top of the mantel shelf and extend upward toward the ceiling.
The last designer whose work is featured here is Andreas Charalambous, principal architect of Forma Design, located in
Washington, D.C. Known for his clean lines and sleek contemporary styling, the two TV fireplace de-
signs that follow are highly representative of his striking work!
The sleek fireplace design pictured directly below is made of concrete. Scribed lines in the concrete add visual
interest and provide a "frame" for the flat screen TV above the firebox opening. Once again, built-in cabinet-
ry and paneling flanks each side of the fireplace, echoing and extending the scribed lines in the concrete fireplace surround. Finely crafted from sycamore, the cabinetry on the left side of the fireplace conceals AV equipment for the plasma television set. To the right of the fireplace, lighted niches provide ideal display areas for the owner's pottery collection.

The striking TV fireplace design that follows is part of a penthouse duplex in Washington D.C. that Andreas
Charalambous transformed from a dated Colonial to an ultra-contemporary, Asian-inspired home he characterizes as "Zen
Modern." At first glance, the fireplace surround appears to epitomize modern-day simplicity. However, a closer look
reveals a sophisticated de-
sign that features contrasting stone colors and textures, as well as a care-
fully conceived integration and symmetry of flat screen TV with fireplace surround.
