Concrete. A favorite of eclectic and industrial styles raw concrete is durable and different. Aim for this sturdy solution when you want an edgy outside-the-box look. Using exposed hardware to adhere the concrete panels to the fireplace adds a small detail that makes a big difference.
Keep the glass box glass. On the outside the metal chimney remains the vertical totem it has always been. But now the glass wall can span up over and in front of the chimney. There's no need to have a chimney that breaks up and separates the elevation into pieces.
Use a metal chimney with any style. Though more commonly used and associated with a modern aesthetic a metal chimney flue can be used in any room where a more open and light-filled space is desired.
Think beyond straight lines and boxes. This open fire pit design allows for the chimney to do double duty as a large industrial sculpture.
This living room gets added drama with a white back-painted glass mantel and fireplace surround that replaced a traditional paneled fireplace. The glass-and-metal mantel is kept sleek thanks to minimal accessories. The key here is to vary the height of the accessories to keep the eye moving along the space.
Separate. Separating the television and fireplace within the same space is difficult to get right but it’s done masterfully here. The wood paneling running up the wall and over the ceiling to surround the fireplace wall makes for a perfect integration — it almost feels as if they are on the same wall. Think carefully about your furniture plan when you have two focal points in a living room. What would you and your guests prefer to see — the fireplace or the television?
