The pictures of stone fireplaces shown here feature beautifully hand-
crafted designs. Created from a variety of stone types, colors and textures, each design was carefully assembled to reflect the unique artistry of its creator!

For centuries, a stone fireplace has been the heart -- and hearth -- of
the home. Warm and comforting, it was at the center of family life each day. The cozy scene pictured below aptly portrays the stone hearth as
the center of domestic tranquility.
Though not as popular or prevalent as brown tones, the light grey and blue grey stones used in the designs
pictured below are also very beautiful and work exceedingly well in the light-filled rooms they anchor. Note
tion to detail and the striking contrast between the stone and the bricks surrounding the firebox opening in the example on the left.
The following pictures of a stone fireplace are markedly different -- though no less striking -- than those
shown above. Deeper in tone and more rugged, i.e., "natural," in appearance, this corner hearth in a lakeside
tage looks right at home against a backdrop of wood-lined walls and ceil-
ing. The triangular recess above the mantel shelf hints at the quality of detailing and workmanship in this wonderful design by Luderowski Archi-
The two stone fireplaces that follow are equally at home in their respective settings. The natural fieldstone surround on the left rests on a curved hearth of large boulders and is capped by a heavy pine mantel shelf. On the right, random sizes of mostly rectangular-shaped roughly cut stones are stacked horizontally in this comfortable log cabin. A raised hearth and rustic timber mantel shelf complete the composition.
The following pictures of stone fireplaces taken by Roger Wade Studio cap-
ture the rustic ambiance and charm of a mountain lodge. Note the cozy inglenook in the example on the left!
The charming cottage with stone fireplace, pictured below, was designed by Mackin Architects. Beautifully detailed with an arched firebox lined with fire bricks in an elegant herringbone pattern, this masonry design features a raised hearth and roughly cut stone mantel shelf.
Equally at home in
outdoor rooms, as shown in the images at right and be-
low, a stone hearth can make a dra-
matic design statement. Whether placed in a suburban setting (right)
or set against the backdrop of a ma-
jestic mountain range (below), an outdoor stone fireplace will comple-
ment its surroundings and provide years of enjoyment for you and your family!
