Introducing the plasma TV fireplace

July 11th, 2006 · No Comments

Looking for a fireplace that’s also an AV focal point? Picture House has launched a marble fireplace! Its Napoli unit has a compartment to store the screen and at the touch of a button it rises from the fireplace to viewing height, like something out of Thunderbirds.
When your programme has finished, simply press the remote again and the TV disappears inside the fireplace.
There’s also room for a DVD player and set top box. The Napoli is also a fully working fireplace, able to outputs 2kW of heat. It sells for approx. 5,000 pounds.
Other models in the range, which perform the same plasma hiding party trick, include the Classic (3,600 pounds), the Beachcomber (2,100 pounds), and the remote controlled Firelight Modern (3,800 pounds) available with the option of pebbles, lava rock or driftwood.

David Free, inventor of the Firelight range of plasma fireplaces and presenter of The Great British Woodshop TV show on Discovery Real Time, says: “People tend to put the plasma TV in the middle of the wall which means it dominates the room and takes up space. Our Firelight range is a revolutionary new concept in home cinema design -a way of disguising the plasma TV as well as having a stylish, fully working fireplace at the same time.”
