Stone Corner Fireplace
Designs...Vastly Versatile!

Stone corner fireplace designs continue to be exceedingly popular today. Extremely versatile, they can be crafted from a wide range of stone types in an almost limitless array of sizes and configurations!

Their  corner   positioning   efficiently maximizes  the use of a room's space and  enhances the view of the flames  in the  firebox  from almost anywhere
in the room. Clearly the focal point of any  space  it occupies,  a corner fire-
place design also lends itself  well  to the  efficient  spatial  arrangement of furniture in the room.




As shown in the numerous images below  --  most of which were captured by the talented folks at Roger Wade Studio -- the variety of different looks that can be created is nearly unlimited. Though predominately traditional in style, the design diversity is wide and varied.

For example,  the stone texture in the following two designs is dramatically different.  On the left, the relatively flat and smooth surfaces of the split-
face stones contrasts sharply with the more  rounded  stones  and  deeply recessed mortar joints between each stone in the design on the right.

Similarly,  the  two  designs  that follow exhibit a relatively smooth and flat surface with rather unique coloration  (left),  versus  a  more textured look with deeply recessed joints between the  stones  (right).     However,  the example on the right uses a very calculated combination of stone sizes and textures within the same design.   For example, the stones at the base are larger and more substantial  --  becoming progressively smaller as they rise -- with small rubble stones reaching toward the ceiling.    In addition, large smooth-faced, wedge-shaped stones, called voussoirs, accentuate the top of the firebox opening for dramatic effect. Note also the double wood man-
tel shelves in the example at left,  while  the  design  on  the  right is com-
pletely  devoid  of  a  mantel shelf, so as not to obstruct the hand-crafted beauty of the voussoirs above the firebox.

The beautiful corner fireplace design that follows  --  though relatively sim-
ple in form -- is "framed" by a magnificent series of massive peeled logs ex-
tending skyward and stained a deep, rich brown color.  Tying it all together is  a  matching  log mantel shelf  supported  by  large round log corbels,  or "brackets."

The two corner fireplace designs pictured below are very different from one another, with each having a uniquely distinctive look all its own.    The de-
sign  on  the  left  has an almost "Kiva-like" appearance with a beautiful ar-
rangement of river stones at the base and extending  upward  to  surround the arched firebox opening.  Though less colorful, the stones used to craft the  soaring  example  at  right are creatively arranged to produce two an-
gled piers with cap stones that flank the firebox opening -- lending a great deal  of architectural interest and a very balanced look to the overall com-
position.

Once  again,  the two designs that follow provide a contrast in stone size, shape, color and texture.  On the left, dark split-faced stones with a rela-
tively smooth finish in random shapes and sizes are  used  to  create  this striking floor-to-ceiling design.  Conversely, the light colored stones in the design pictured on the right are much more uniform in shape,  size and po-
sitioning, but have a more textured appearance.

The  examples  pictured at right and below demonstrate the versatility of corner fireplace designs  relative   to room type. In addition to their place-
ment  in  living  rooms,  dining rooms
and family rooms -- as shown above
-- their efficient use of space makes them   viable   candidates  for  bath-
rooms,  bedrooms (right),  and kitch-
ens (below).
