The brick fireplace designs featured here borrow from the past and blend it with the present . . . . . . .
. . . . . to create some very striking brick hearths, such as the design pictured
above by master artisan, Clay Chapman!
Today's renewed appreciation for quality craftsmanship and detailing causes us to look to the past for
inspiration, such as the
Craftsman Style, popular at the turn of the
20th century. The stunning brick surround pictured at left is located
in Pasadena, California, in the leg-
endary Gamble House, a master-
piece of Craftsman design completed

The striking fireplace designs that follow borrow from architectural styles of the past. Pictured below, left, is a Colonial Revival fireplace for a Shingle Style home, designed by Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects/Builders, one of the outstanding architectural design firms in the U.S.
The fireplace design pictured below, right, was inspired by the Prairie School movement, led by architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959). Though a late 19th and early 20th century architectural style, the Prairie School fireplace featured here has a contemporary flair!
The brick hearth designs that follow feature brick tiling around the firebox openings for added architectural interest. The beautifully detailed fireplace pictured below, right, also has tile accents on the mantel shelf, as well as on each of the pillars flanking the firebox.
Needless to say, the brick fireplace design that follows is striking! It also features a bluestone hearth and mantel shelf with a granite keystone just below the mantel shelf.
The brick hearth image at right was captured through the lens of highly talented architectural photographer, Roger Wade. Note the timber work framing the fireplace, including the wood mantel shelf.
The grand fireplace pictured below was designed by Summerstone Pro-
ductions in Flint, Michigan. At 22 ft. long x 8 1/2 ft. high, it features a large raised hearth with steps leading up to it on either side. A massive wood mantel shelf helps to balance the overall design.
