A fireplace is an architectural structure designed to contain a fire. Fireplaces are used at the present time mostly for the relaxing ambiance they create.
Organizations like the Environmental Protection Agency and the Washington Department of Ecology warn that, according to various studies, fireplaces can pose a significant health risk.
This is a contemporary living room with a stone fireplace and a simple mantle.
Flanked by dual bookcases, this corner fireplace vies for attention with a flat-screen television. But because it sits on a pedestal and upholds a beautiful mirrored panel, it’s a winner each time.
Chris Pardo Design | Elemental Architecture Look at the clean feel of this Vancouver living room – modern corner fireplace!
This living room has a fireplace made of rock, we have a beautiful carpet and the rich colors blended in this space. Try something as simple as adding a colorful tray to the center of your coffee table or ottoman.
I love the colors of the Lacquer Wood trays at West Elm. The color of this living room is Sienna Sand by Parker Paint.
The possible addition of curve in fireplace is a unique move for the designer; and the creation of hearth lightly raised is nice too. The color palette of this living room is really classy and sophisticated. A stacked stone fireplace draws the attention when visitors aren’t watching the 60-inch framed inset plasma TV screen. The furniture arrangement of this living room is spectacular!
Sometimes the best way to deal with these two focal points is to separate them. This design makes great use of an angled wall while still making it easy to enjoy the fireplace and the TV at the same time.
Modern and airy family room with nail head accents and rich grey and pale blue palette, accents of persimmon. I’d prefer a larger firebox, a raised hearth and travertine. I like the way they’ve done the fireplace but also the room set up. Fire pits developed into raised hearths in buildings, but venting smoke depended on open windows or holes in roofs.
The medieval great hall typically had a centrally located hearth, where an open fire burned with the smoke rising to the vent in the roof. There are different ways to position a fireplace in the living room which depends on the size and shape of your space.
