16 Exceptional Fireplaces

A statement fireplace can have a dramatic impact on a living space and be a beautiful addition to any home.

A fireplace is often considered an element of class and elegance and is also a detail that can make a home feel warm and comfortable. They inevitably draw attention and can easily be a focal point, which makes their design and how we lend care to the area surrounding it important.

This year, the fireplace is less about the mantle as a perch for collected curiosities and decor and now simply a statement architectural feature. Think of a ‘no styling necessary’ approach. Whether a heat source or purely a design element, rectangular shapes and statement materials appear to be what’s hot for 2017 and no one is shy to take on a bold approach.

Often a gathering point and the heart of the home, fireplaces add movement, comfort, security and warmth to a space and despite Spring being only days away, a cold snap has me dreaming of my ideal fireplace.
