Fire..its warmth and enchantment has mesmerized us from the very beginning and now we have the luxury of admiring its beauty in elegant stone fireplace designs with little to none of that old mess making a fire used to be. The presence of a fireplace can change the atmosphere of an entire room thus it is of the most importance to consider it as an important piece when you design your home. Nowadays every modern mansion has a fireplace that gathers people around it and becomes so the most important design item of the room. Modern, traditional,glass, metallic or made out of stone or bricks, the fireplace is an essential element in creating a cozy, welcoming atmosphere out of your living-room. All the pieces of furniture become oriented towards it and decorative objects are put into value when set next to a beautiful fireplace.
And now lets talk about design. Square, long shaped, tall or small, inserted into a stone or glass wall or detached, a fireplace can match any interior design, its presence alone being a plus to the ensemble. Of course finishings such as metal, white brick, river stone or clincher must be in tone with the design scheme and take into consideration the design as a whole. The fireplace can become a great base for exhibiting an art piece or decorative objects such as glass bows, candles or family photos. Its all up to you how you design its aesthetics and how you manage to integrate a fireplace in your home.
