This is a" blued " finish on cold roll steel. We do this finish quite a bit on the fireplace surrounds we build. Its very organic looking and very durable. There are several ways to accomplish it but not with paint.

Are you using an acid? Is it a spray? The cold rolled steel already has some of that look on it, so I am curious how you finish it. Love it.

Gee no answer yet, darn. The wood is awesome, I love it. Probably reclaimed wood from an old cabin somewhere. Eh, I don't know just a guess.

You could try emailing the architect or designer & asking them for specific info. It looks like steel sheeting w/ some sort of finish.

This metallic fireplace looks fantastic. We think it would go great with one of our metal mesh firescreens.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Fireplaces, Hold the Fire
... Or not quite as much. Just make sure to use more wood than you would if you were actually building a fire — it looks more purposeful that way. Do you cover up the fireplace when it's not in use? Tell us how in the comments. More fireplace ideas: Tiled Fireplace Surrounds Fireplaces: They're Not Just for the Living Room Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot with Fireplaces
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Turn Your Firewood Into a Focal Point
Logs stacked inside a firebox have a natural sculptural quality that proves to be an attractive and affordable option when fireplace is not in use.
Houzz added this to Rivet
Rivets can be fastened with heat and a hammer, or with a rivet gun, which smashes the pin without heat. Both methods create a button that is bigger than the hole it passes through, making a permanent connection.
6. Steel. Industrial factories and mills had steel columns, beams and trusses. As with the exposed building systems, there was little reason to cover up these structural necessities. Get this look: Stick to simple, steel accessories and furnishings to give your home an understated industrial touch. The cleaner the lines, the closer to the industrial look.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 12 Hot Ideas for Fireplace Facing
Finished steel. This example shown here is described as having a blued finish. This is not paint but an actual finish process. It’s a great-looking detail for a modern or transitional space. Cost: $5,000 to $8,000 for raw materials, custom fabrication, finishing and installation.
