This square, blocky design feels almost like a blank canvas. With its neutral color palette and straight lines, it`s easy to think of this fireplace as too plain, but a closer look reveals subtle details that complement any modern home. For instance, the curved stone of the façade softens the hard edges and gently radiates heat throughout a room. The small hearth in front evokes memories of sitting a bit too close to the fire with a warm drink on cold nights. It can set the stage for a large, show-stopping piece of art or holiday-specific decorations. The simplicity and functionality of this fireplace are ultimately its greatest features, and it will figure beautifully and seamlessly into just about any 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.
And while many homes built during certain periods feature built-in fireplaces, they may require an update to keep with the times and one`s personal needs.
The incomparable joy of gathering around a fire with your loved ones or reflecting in solitude on the crackling flames will never go out of style. We may live in seductively convenient times, but some things simply can`t be replaced. The fireplaces of today not only celebrate what connects us to our early brothers, but continue to earn their rightful place as modern heirlooms for generations to come.
