Appreciate feedback as truly wondering what would you do?
In a new construction family room, planning to take with me, 3 cherry wall units (each approx 36") to be built in on the wall to the right of a "stacked stone" gas fireplace. To the left of the fireplace, planning to have a custom cherry shelf of almost similar length as the wall units - this will allow us to be prepared for whatever technicnological advances come forward in the television area.
Question: We will not have this big t.v. located on the shelf immediately & may never as we are not addicted to t.v.. Am concerned about the wall units looking so formal yet the fireplace being so informal & what might we balance with on the long shelf? Appears to me that the room will look wop-sided but perhaps with the right art work (no experience here), I might achieve an attractive look.
p.s. Choose not to locate a t.v. above the fireplace as some now doing for many reasons.
