We loved your fireplace design too! Went with a white stacked stone to lighten it up for our room. Now deciding on the wall for an accent color.

Beautiful! I have searched for hours for a fireplace I love and this is it. I wanted to know the wall color because I really like the contrast. TIA...Sherry Brandon

The table top is marble, it was a piece from the clients own collection.

Hi, Thanks for asking. This sofa was purchased by the client in a consignment store in North Vancouver, it was a "one of a kind". However, I would check Bombast in Vancouver for furniture with similar styling and quality.

@Portal Design,

Love your deign! I'm having a hard time finding the black mustang slate. Would you be willing to share your thoughts about using these as substitute materials: http://www.jasba.de/en/kollektionen/die_kollektionen_uebersicht.html?p_menu=3546&p_page=3629#top in place of the black mustang slate http://www.jasba.de/en/kollektionen/die_kollektionen_uebersicht.html?p_menu=2451&p_page=2557 8737 H in place of the "cheap" floor tile.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Try Porcolanosa - they have quite a few tiles that have a similar look.

Brilliant design; love the symmetry and balance and so zen. - I would really appreciate receiving the dimensions and the materials used for this fireplace. I believe it would help to solve my design dilemma-- the fireplace is off-centered in the room and off-centered between 2 windows. Your elegant fireplace design would trick the eye to focus on the fireplace and nothing else.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to On Fire
Clean-lined and minimalist, this fireplace puts out a simple fire surrounded by traditionally-placed symmetrical furniture, with interesting variation in color and detail.
Tile. Cover a new or existing mantel with a stunning tile of your choice. The tile design here shows off visible grout lines, which together become another awesome detail on this gorgeous mantel. Design tip: Use grout in a color that contrasts the tile for an especially eye-catching design.
