If you are the type of person who craves a bold living space, something far different and more unique than the average, try a molded fireplace set into the wall. The ultra-modern shape boasts lusciously curved lines that mimic the organic waves of flames, resulting in a fascinating combination of the natural and the man-made. This is not a design for everyone, but whether you love it or hate it, you cannot deny it has style. Allow it to be the center of attention with unassuming furniture and a clean black and white color scheme.
For a modern twist on traditional style, look no further than this gorgeous hearth. With a shape reminiscent of the old-world wood-burning stoves, but with a sleekness that is as contemporary as it gets, this fireplace is a perfect complement to any home decor. In a minimalist home such as this one, the black and white stand in stark contrast with each other, but the cozy fire and the warmth it suggests keep the surroundings from seeming too harsh. This is a timeless design that will make any house feel like a lovingly curated home.
Few can deny the nostalgic joy of a good old fashioned fireplace, to say nothing of the warmth and heavenly glow provided on a long cold night or at an intimate gathering.
The black metal and exposed chimney of this modern fireplace design lend themselves well to a 60`s-inspired room. When set against a large picture window, the boxy frame is echoed perfectly, giving a sense of continuity without being too uniform, as well as offering a welcoming view when the weather gets a bit too dreary. The stark black metal can seem a bit harsh in a smaller space, so complement a fireplace like this with low, angular furniture to make the room seem taller, and bright splashes of color to update its retro-chic feel.
