Though predominately traditional in style, each design differs, in vary-
ing degrees, from the next in over-
all composition and corner place-
The corner fireplace pictures at right and below portray designs crafted
from river stone, commonly called riv-
er rock. While each of the two de-
signs below are positioned at a forty-
five degree angle across the corner and simply "dive" into the wall on ei-
ther side, the stone work in the de-
sign at right extends along the wall
to the left of the firebox opening to provide space for a log storage area.
The following two designs are crafted from fieldstone. Once again, the design on the right is placed at a forty-five degree angle across the corner and simply dives into the wall on each side. The sides of the design on the left, however, cant backward and outward at another forty-five degree angle for more of a handcrafted look. Adding to that look is the curvature of the raised stone hearth.
The corner fireplace design pictured below anchors a room that functions as a media center. Note how the sides of the raised stone hearth cant backward and outward at a forty-five degree angle to give it more of a hand-tailored look.
The monumental designs in the corner fireplace pictures that follow are scaled to match the voluminous open space in the rooms they anchor. The quality of workmanship and attention to detail is highly evident in each of the designs.
The corner fireplace designs for the bedrooms at right and below present
a study in contrasts. The design at
right is not centered on the corner but, due to the close proximity of
the windows, is shifted to the left. While the stone work on the right
side is angled backward to the wall, the left side simply dives into the
wall. A log mantel shelf resting on stone corbels or "brackets" ties it all together.
The corner hearth design in the bedroom pictured below is rather unique and differs dramatically from the
design at right, above. In stark contrast to the rustic look and textured finish of the stone in the previous
example, the smooth stone finish gives the following design much more of a transi-
tional or contemporary look and feel.
The unusual stacked stone design that follows is part of a covered
outdoor room. Note how the stone work extends along the right wall and incorpo-
rates a raised hearth to provide a small seating area near the firebox . . . . . . . perfect for "cozying up" to the fire on chilly evenings!
