The streamlined Christopher Blank entertainment unit I commissioned for Joe and John’s living and dining area is both beautiful and multi-functional. The messmate timber of the entertainment unit connects to the rawness of the brick wall, and the long wood grain engages the eye as a work of art. Because the unit extends from the edge of the doors, over the brick pillars and into the middle of the room, it draws the eye and connects the three spaces via the brick wall to the new Glen Dimplex Victorian Fireplaces ‘Matrix’ wood-burner.
There is a wood storage unit tucked into the side of the cabinet so pieces of firewood become part of the function of the central fireplace feature. To keep the focus on the materials I employed a simple bit of technology – an ‘eye’ in the TV base – that means Joe and John can use one Bose universal remote and keep the remainder of their remotes and technological accessories hidden inside the cabinetry.
