A living room fireplace plays a central role in the home: the mantel can be dressed seasonally, and when the flames are flickering, nothing is more cozy or welcoming. Designers have long since relied on fireplaces to create instant ambiance. The sound of crackling logs and the flames’ warm glow are sought-after lifestyle features, and these handsome hearths prove just how appealing and versatile having a fireplace can be in any room. Kitchen? Entryway? Bedroom? We want them all!
