Fireplaces traveled a long way from necessity to wish. Original ones are usually found in old houses, log cabins, or countryside ranches. The traditional fireplace provided a safeguard against freezing winters and often had a hearth.
If your fireplace isn’t of the type that’s used often (or ever), or if you don’t intend on using it, you can still make this desirable feature a benefit to your overall decor rather than a drawback. Beautiful chunky white candles on coordinating candlesticks, for example, give a nod to the concept of “firelight” while being framed out nicely by the fireplace surround itself.
While many people opt for ‘centralized’ positioning, corners seem to be a bit underused. However, corners are able to accommodate both traditional and modern fireplaces. All you need to do is to calculate the size, and to find a fireplace which actually fits the corner.
Fireplaces themselves can’t be made of wood for obvious reasons. But that doesn’t mean this warm natural material should be avoided altogether. In this stunning fireplace setting, for example, a chunky wood mantel and equally substantial corbels bring warmth and provide a distinct separation between the mantel face and the upper wall.
