“The opening should be about as tall as it is wide; the depth of the firebox and fireback should be about the same and about one-third of the fireplace width; the fireback should be plumb and straight; and the throat should be rounded or streamlined to a small, typically 4-inch, throat opening.”

What attracts many people to a Rumford fireplace, besides its aesthetics, is its efficiency in radiating heat into the room and drawing smoke and pollutants out. Rumford fireplaces are taller and shallower than the typical fireplace, and have a narrower chimney opening to increase updraft.

The Rumford’s tall, shallow firebox was developed in the late 18th century by Sir Benjamin Thompson, a physicist who went by the name Count Rumford. The design remained popular until around 1850 and was used by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello. http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/23073755?utm_source=Houzz&utm_campaign=u441&utm_medium=email&utm_content=gallery21
