A fireplace should be cozy, so you might be inclined to stay away from a modern design for fear it`ll look too cold and stark—but that`s a serious misconception. Sure, it can definitely read that, and if that`s what you`re going for, more power to you, but you don`t have to sacrifice homey vibes in the name of clean lines. Let these fireplaces prove to you that modern is the move.
The best modern fireplaces, much like the best modern homes, pay homage to the past without being restricted by it; they incorporate the best of what came before while looking ahead and welcoming what is to come.
Both decorative and functional, cozy and statement-making, a fireplace is the heart of any home. And whether you like it or not, your fireplace is the focal point of any space that it occupies. For that reason, it`s important to give your fireplace the same attention that it attracts. The look of your fireplace can elevate–or downgrade–a space, so making it beautiful is key.
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.
