This is an admirable effort. Too bad the living room has obviously been carpeted, covering the concrete floor. I assume there was an area rug designed by the architect in the same nature as those in the dining room and kitchen. The chimney with the stone fireplace transitioning into wood paneling is a bit off, but had it been stone all the way up to the ceiling, it might have looked a bit heavy. This is the second time I have seen a TV worked into the design of a house pleasantly; usually they are an interruption. (The other was the Christian House, where the TV sinks into a hiding place completely out of sight when not in use.)

When John Christian was still alive my wife (whose hometown is Lafayette) and I were among a group that toured the house and led by John. He took a sort of mischievous fun in asking the group to find the television in the LR, and then activating the mechanism as we watched it rise out of the cabinet. The monkeys oooed and awed (I'm probably a misanthrope at heart).
