A Sunnyvale, California, homeowner didn’t want the television to dominate his open-plan kitchen/family room when he had company. He turned to an interior designer who came up with this handsome solution: a storage and display unit with closable TV niche.

Perforated metal screening on the back of the sliding panel allows heat from the TV’s electronic components to escape.
