The river rock fireplace pictures featured here are a collection of some of the most striking stone fireplace designs we have found to date. Though all are crafted from river rock, or a combination of river rock and fieldstone, each fireplace design is distinctive and unlike any other!
Encompassing a wide range of sizes and styles, the striking stone hearths that follow are the work of a
diverse but creative group of architects, de-
signers and builders.
The soaring floor-to-ceiling design pictured below was created by Summit Handcrafted Log Homes. Note the large, beautifully finished log corbels, or brackets, used to support the wood mantel shelf.
The two river rock fireplace pictures that follow provide a sampling of the palette of colors available in
river rocks. For added visual interest, the de-
sign on the right incorporates small flat stones with rounded edges be-
tween the larger round stones, as well as a vertically oriented row that frames the top of the firebox opening.
Similarly, the top of the slightly arched firebox opening in the design pic-
tured below, left, by Custom Log Homes, is framed with vertically oriented stones that are oblong in shape. The rugged design on the right uses larger stones that are randomly positioned.
The large, striking design pictured below, left, is by Custom Mountain Ar-
chitects and features beautiful stone work that extends along the length of the fireplace wall. The firebox of the unique stone masonry design be-
low, right, is lined with firebrick in an elegant herringbone pattern. Sur-
rounding the opening are small stones in varying sizes, compactly arranged.
The beautifully crafted river rock and fieldstone fireplace on the left, be-
low, was designed by architect Robert A. M. Stern. Note the graceful arc of the fireplace facing. The striking -- albeit highly unique -- kiva-inspired design on the right features randomly positioned river rocks around an arched firebox.
Oozing nostalgic ambiance and charm is the rustic stone surround pictured below, left, for a small mountain fishing cabin designed by Miller Architects. On the right, below, is a monumental river rock fireplace design by Log Cabin Homes.
The two river rock fireplace pictures that follow feature designs that also extend from floor to ceiling. Each of the soaring designs provides a striking focal point for the interior living area of the log home it anchors.
And once again, the images at right and below provide a sampling of the rainbow of hues available in river rocks . . . from tan and brown earth tones (right) . . . . .
. . . to an "Easter egg" collection of pastel colors, as shown in the design below from Log Cabin Homes!
