Art form. This living room artistically combines the television and fireplace on one wall. The television is offset by the hearth for balance while the streamlined fireplace almost disappears under the recessed cavity when it's not on. A surround like this can easily be customized into full-overlay doors for extra living room storage.
Metal. Edgy but old school this firebox surrounded puts an old-world material in a more modern form. Mixing and matching finishes — such as with the raw wood planking metal fireplace and highly lacquered furniture here — feels eclectic and spontaneous.
Think beyond straight lines and boxes. This open fire pit design allows for the chimney to do double duty as a large industrial sculpture.
Slab material. A fully segmented wall pattern in wood creates this transitional center fireplace. A single piece of stone with a hole cut out for the firebox serves as the surround. Smooth lines deliver casual elegance in this family room. Select slabs from a stone yard’s remnants (material left over from other projects) to complete your project at a much lower cost.
Make it sculptural. One of the great advantages to using a prefabricated metal fireplace and metal chimney is the ability to place a hearth just about anywhere in the home and treat it as a sculpture.
Let it go through the roof. These flues can rise up and through dramatic roof overhangs with minimal impact. Just make sure you allow for the proper clearances by following local building codes and the manufacturer's specifications.
