SMART SO­LU­TION

Lau­ren and Robert Shaver de­vised an in­ex­pen­sive way to deal with the clut­ter of elec­tron­ics near the TV— and cre­ated a cozy seat for read­ing and re­lax­ing, right.

1 STOCK CAB­I­NET

The Shavers started with a bridge cab­i­net (typ­i­cally used above a re­frig­er­a­tor or range). In­stalled next to the fire­place, it hides their TV re­ceiver and other equip­ment, in­set bot­tom. Alu­minum sheets re­place wood pan­els in front to al­low the re­mote con­trols to work with the doors closed. Two fans in­side the cab­i­net keep elec­tron­ics cool.

2 CORD CON­TROL

Cord cov­ers guide the wiring from a cutout in the cab­i­net to the TV above the fire­place.
