Rather, by combining the two, they can both enjoy the limelight!

The striking contemporary fireplace that follows was designed by  Andreas Charalambous of Forma Design in Washington, D.C. Set against a dramatic wall of deep indigo blue,  the  white concrete fireplace is scribed in a sym-
metrical geometric pattern of varying size rectangles,  in part,  to  "frame" the brushed aluminum television surround, as well as the flanking speakers. A beautifully conceived and finely executed design!
