The fireplace and patio pictures featured here include a variety of styles, as well as a wide range of materials -- both singularly and in combination -- to create some very exciting and unique outdoor fireplace designs!
Pictured at left and at top of page is a handsome
natural stone patio and fire-
place design by Landscape Aesthetics, based in Bernardsville, New Jersey. It features a slightly arched firebox with a prominent keystone centered over the top of the opening.
Craftsman Style outdoor patio fireplace that follows features a lovely
fieldstone surround of varying size stones positioned randomly -- al-
beit deliberately -- for great effect! Huge boulders form the hearth, while the mantel shelf is capped by small bricks with curved or rounded edges. For added contrast, the chimney that extends above the mantel shelf is clad with stucco and given a textured finish. A few strategically positioned stones are partially embedded in the stucco to break up the massing and provide even more visual interest.
The two patio pictures that follow feature outdoor fireplace designs which combine brick and stone for
dramatic effect. The design pictured below, left, consists of a stone surround and mantel shelf with a brick
overmantel and chimney. Note the decorative brickwork and panel just above the man-
Pictured below, right, is a striking
Rumford fireplace from Superior Clay Cor-
poration in Ohio. While the surround consists of stone, the firebox, itelf, is framed with brickwork. Extending above the brick mantel shelf is a brick chimney combined with beautifully contrasting stone work at the corners -- reminiscent of that used on English period revival homes during the 1920s and '30s in North America.
The handsome design that follows was created by Cornerstone Masonry in Boise, Idaho. Though essentially
crafted from bricks, it features stone ac-
cents around the firebox opening, as well as a stone-capped hearth and mantel shelf.
The outdoor fireplace designs pic-
tured at right and below are made
of cultured stone. The top of the arched firebox opening at right is framed by wedge shaped stones,
or voussoirs, and a large keystone
in the center.
Conversely, the striking cultured stone design that follows does not have an actual arched firebox opening. However, the stone work around the firebox is designed to simulate or give the illusion of an arched firebox opening. Other features of this design include a raised hearth with built-in seating, as well as decorative built-in storage areas for firewood.
The focal point of the covered patio design that follows is a fireplace de-
sign from AAA Cast Stone in Palmetto, Florida. Made of cast stone, it features built-in seating on either side of the hearth, as well as a recess above the mantel shelf for a flat screen TV.
The covered patio design at right features a soaring Kiva style fire-
place. Its lightly colored adobe or stucco exterior contrasts nicely
with the weather-worn wooden
posts and ceiling timbers over-
And finally, the lovely Spanish Style fireplace that follows features a stucco exterior with colorful tiled accents around the firebox opening, as well as along the mantel shelves and the elaborate raised hearth design. The fire bricks lining the firebox interior are laid in an attractive herring- bone pattern.
