Few  architectural  elements  have  the nearly irresistible allure of a cozy hearth tucked inside an inglenook or alcove.     Warm  and  inviting,  they beckon us to nestle up beside them for comfort and camaraderie. Large or small, the inglenook fireplace draws us in like a child to a camp fire!

And few inglenook fireplace designs are larger than the rustic surround pic-
tured  below.    Part of a legendary Adirondack Great Camp in Upstate New York,  it  is  one of two monumental fireplaces in the main lodge living room which measures 80 feet wide by 100 feet long . . . and 30 feet high!  Cere-
al heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post built this spectacular 68 building com-
plex, called Camp Topridge, in the 1920s.

A dramatic departure from the rugged and rustic fireplace pictured above is the inglenook fireplace design that follows.  Richly carved, paneled and fin-
ished,  and highlighted with gilded accents, this striking alcove is part of an equally elaborate dining room in the Swan Turnblad mansion,  completed  in 1908.    Now  the  American Swedish Institute,  it is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

When it comes to designs for inglenook fireplaces,  it  doesn't  get  much cozier than the design pictured below.    Neatly tucked under a beautiful wooden staircase,  the detailing of the the brick fireplace surround echos the curve of the arch framing the inglenook.

Continuing with a brick theme, the fireplace that follows was created by Clay Chapman  --  one  of,  if not THE finest brick artisan working today. Recesses  and  layers  of  brickwork  are  masterfully arranged to create striking,  one  of a kind designs that are both visually and architecturally intoxicating!

The handsome Kiva fireplace design pictured below is highly unusual, as it is rarely found in an inglenook.   Originating from the American Southwest desert region, the Kiva was historically placed in the corner of a room.

rary design pictured at right was cap-
tured through the camera lens of one of  the  highly talented folks at Roger Wade Studio.     It features a roughly textured stone surround  with  an  al-
cove  for  storing  firewood under the raised hearth/seating area.
