Use a metal chimney with any style. Though more commonly used and associated with a modern aesthetic, a metal chimney flue can be used in any room where a more open and light-filled space is desired.
Let it spin. Metal chimney technology also allows the fireplace to be a floating object unconnected to the ground. The Fireorb by architect Doug Garofalo takes the prefab metal fireplace to a whole new level. Allowing a 360-degree rotation, this is a fireplace that can be placed anywhere in a space — it's like something out of The Jetsons.
Wood. Floor-to-ceiling millwork in a coffered design surrounds this fireplace in true classic style, updated with a trendy hue of gray. Placing a decorative layer of stone around the firebox opening as well as on the hearth breaks up all the vertical and horizontal lines of the wood moldings.
Matched in scale. This fireplace and television, one on top of the other, make for a stunning lesson in scale. The perfectly sized components almost make them look like they're combined. When placing your TV above your fireplace, make sure it's low enough to be comfortable to look at. You don't want anyone to crane a neck when trying to relax and watch TV.
Steel. An entire fireplace wall clad in steel has a commanding presence. The industrial feel goes hand in hand with minimalism for those who love the less-is-more look. Applying texture to this common material during fabrication ensures a unique visual depth.
I love a good fireplace. If you are a member of the always-cold club, you know what I’m talking about. Sitting in front of a roaring fire is my idea of cozy. Whether you love the smell and crackle of a wood-burning fireplace or the ease of a gas-burning one, choosing the right facing is a big decision.
