Marshall & Louise,
Below find the rendering of the cabinet for your living room. It's shown in curly maple, which rendered better than the zebrawood (although my inclination is still to lean towards the latter). Also shown is a rather plain fabric for the curved speaker sides-- your input here is needed as to how sedate or wild you want the fabric to be.
Note the gentle curve in the television section. In the finished piece, this detail will show better than the computer can manage.
The glass is 3/4in thick, hovering on black lacquered cylinders above the cabinet.
