Now everyone can hang holiday stockings by the chimney with care thanks to the slew of new, stylish fireplaces that warm home and hearth. Historically, having a fireplace meant owning a home, downing trees or shoveling coal into an open hearth. Today, fireplaces can be found in a variety of non-traditional living spaces and styles ranging from ethanol fired, wall mounted and even virtual.
The fireplace featured above is a lovely representation of an expanded built-in wall hearth. What makes this look so updated is the hearth’s sprawling width, radiant warmth and marquetry on the wood paneled walls. Stones rather than wood are used to cleverly generate heat.
