Contemporary Fireplaces...
The Wild Side!

The design of contemporary fireplaces has been revolutionized like never before. The conventional design constraints of the past several centuries have been tossed out the window. All the rules have been broken.  As a major design element in the home, the contemporary fireplace has undergone an extreme makeover!

Ironically, it is somewhat of a contradiction . . . . . at least in part.    As many of us move our fireplaces away from the wall and into the center of our rooms, we are doing what early man did when he first began to use fire indoors.  In a way, we have come full circle.

On the other hand,  with  the rapid advances
of  the  past  decade  in  the areas of burner technology,  metallurgy,  electronics, and re-
fractory
ceramics and glass, we are now able to create fireplaces that our ancestors could not have even imagined. The fireplace, as we
know it, has changed dramatically!

As we journey toward the outer limits  (the "wild side")  of  fire space  to explore the realm of cutting edge contemporary fireplaces, take  note  of some of the "milder" -- albeit unconventional -- forms along the way. And remember  that  when  we  view the latest in cutting edge design, we are only scratching the surface. Just imagine what the next decade will bring!


If you can't decide where to place your fireplace within the room . . . or even which room to put it in,  a portable fireplace may be just what you need.    As the name implies, these units can be moved anywhere in the room . . . or even from room to room. Eco-friendly and fueled by a blend
of  ethanol,  they  are remotely controlled and come in a wide variety of unique shapes.
