Fireplace pictures stone . . . As an art form, a striking stone hearth is one of the few architectural elements that is both beautiful and highly func- tional. More importantly, it is one of the few, if not the only, architectural element around which family and friends gather to celebrate special occasions and create new memories, as well as to reminisce about times past.
The stone fireplace hearth is, quite frankly, the heart of the home. Due
to the limitless array of design op-
tions, and the versatility with which the material, itself, can be adapted
to create an infinite number of looks,
a stone fireplace is an excellent
choice for virtually any setting or
home style -- including, of course -- the quintessential log home or cabin!
The fireplace pictures stone above right and below are just a few of many fine examples designed specifically for log homes and cabins.
Another popular choice is the
dack Style pictured in the striking de-
signs at right and below. The brack-
eted wood mantel shelf on the two images of the stone hearth that fol-
lows give it somewhat of a Craftsman Style look and feel, as well.
The unique design with birch bark tree trunks and branches pictured below also hints at the Adirondack Style
and provides a modern twist on a cen-
tury-old theme to give it more of an updated look and feel.
Moving away from the rustic to the more refined -- albeit still very tra-
ditional -- look and feel are the fireplace pictures stone at right and below. The roughly textured stone
on the fireplace at right contrasts beautifully with the finely finished wood ceiling trusses directly above
Below left, the smooth finish and random ashlar pattern of the stone hearth lend more of a formal look to
this living room . . . . . as does the dark slate stone surround with
soirs and keystone framing the top
of the arched firebox opening in the example on the right.
The rather unusual -- albeit very striking -- stone surround at right makes quite an impressive design
statement! Resting against a back-
drop of roughly textured fieldstone that extends from floor to ceiling is
a finely finished mantelpiece with a smooth stone finish.
The ledge stone surround pictured below is capped with a large painted wood mantel and overmantel. Once again, the wood mantel and overmantel with beaded board inset hints at the Craftsman Style.
Regardless of your personal tastes or preferences, a stone fireplace can be crafted to your exacting standards. One that will complement the style of your home and, more importantly, your personal style!
