Where can I find the Corte Madera fireplace? - Could you provide a supplier for the outside corner gas fireplace that Olson Design and Construction contributed to Houzz? I've searched the Web but was unsuccessful in finding it. I'm looking for a vent free gas fireplace for a home in Florida and have the perfect corner for just such a piece.
Any chance you know how high the mantle is? - We have this corner fireplace and want to put up a mantle. There is a key in the wall for the gas that we don't use. Where we want to put the mantle will interfere with the key. I don't want to put in a low mantle but I am not sure what to do. Since this picture is just like our fp, I thought it might help me to know this mantle height. Thanks!! :) »
There are two things here that make the area around the fireplace cozy. One is that there is a big seating area which has been adorned with a pillow. This invites you to curl up right next to the fire to read a book or just to watch the dance of the flames. The other thing here is the shelf of framed artwork above the fireplace. Checking it out gives you an excuse to come closer to the fire to keep warm.
If you happen to have a fireplace in your living room (or in your bedroom for that matter) then you should toss some pillows down near it. After all, the only thing cozier than a roaring fire is cuddling up on a pillow by that fire!
A fireplace should be more than functional -- it should be a relaxing haven where you can kick back with a good book, a hot drink, and your memory or daydream of choice. I like how this unique corner fireplace doubles as a toasty bench.
