The free standing fireplace has undergone a dramatic transformation in recent years . . . . . . .
. . . So dramatic, in fact, that many of them don't stand at all! Rather, they are suspended from the ceiling and, in some instances, rotate with the push of a button so that everyone in the room can view the fire.
As with many of today's contemporary designs, the fireplace has enjoyed
a new freedom from prior design constraints. Modern materials such as re-
fractory ceramic and glass are being incorporated in the designs, often with dramatic effect.
Abstract and asymmetrical forms are frequently used . . .
as are attention-grabbing patterns and colors.
On the other hand, some are rectangular and look like a picture frame for a flame . . .
while others are round and showy, just the same.
Some fit neatly in a corner . . .
while others take center stage.
Some go back to their humble beginnings . . .
with a hole in the floor and a hole in the roof,
while others stand proudly as a signed work of art and somewhat aloof.
As you can see, the freestanding fireplace has changed dramatically in recent years and continues to alter our perception of what a fireplace is. Undoubtedly, this trend will extend into the future. Stay tuned for more!
