From a practical point is it safe to sit in front of a fireplace?

I love this setting - very warm and cozy, but wonder if this was an issue?

The fireplace would not be operational if someone were to sit directly in front of it. Fortunately the location of this home doesn't require the fireplace for warmth so we took artistic license and designed it for the aesthetics.

We found the mantel at a yard that sells reclaimed wood from barns and buildings. We then had it distressed and stained to our liking.
