The wrapper is custom stainless, seamed and fastened on the window-side so you don't see it. Sure, you could use, say, copper, or maybe steel with either a painted or a gun-metal finish.

What is the material used around the fireplace on the floor, please?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Sure, the fireplace base is two inch deep concrete, poured on site (but not in place) into custom melamine form-work, with hand-added die, fibers, and reinforcement. It took five of us to lift the slab into place!

The floors are pre-finished, "natural" color bamboo by "Plyboo," which I purchased from "Artemis Environmental" in Pittsburgh.

Where is the sofa from?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
I think there's a Houzz "tag" on the sofa labeling it as a Charles sofa from B&B Italia. It was a loner from super-cool Pittsburgh modern furniture retailer, Weisshouse.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Fisher kept the main living space open and airy. "In the past it was necessary to separate rooms from one another. For one thing, heating an entire building was difficult," Fisher says. "Today a fluid, open arrangement of rooms suits the way we work, because we need visual control over spaces that can be used for many different purposes."Sectional: Charles, B&B Italia; dining chairs: Wishbone Chair by Hans Wegner, Design Within Reach
