What Houzz contributors are saying:
Low profile. The position and shape of this great fireplace call for shelving that enhances its sleek design. The low-set shelves echo the rectangular fireplace and provide a platform on which to display stylish pieces.
In this modern black and white home in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood, interior designer Nicole Hollis made the black firebox and yellow flames the art on this monumental white wall.
The 8-foot long fireplace in the great room was a bit of a challenge for Hollis. Both she and the client wanted it to have a clean cut, with no glass. In the end, they had the piece custom made with sensors that turn the flame off if someone gets too close. The installation was tricky as well — since the fireplace was made in a single piece, it had to be craned in through the building's roof.
