Put a fireplace in any room and you’ve added instant charm — and more than a touch of romance. These fireplaces add all that, plus generous helpings of style and sophistication, in locales from South Africa to Holland, and Stockholm to Hollywood, in our collection of the best indoor fireplaces from Stylish Eve for 2013. Contemporary fireplaces are frequently nestled in long walls of off-white, gray, or stone; some are corners of warmth and intersecting rooms on two sides. Whether your home is a traditional Georgian one or a compact loft in Manhattan, the lure of a crackling fire in a stone or brick hearth is irresistible…and the same goes for one that graces the glass-enclosed porch facing the back yard. Fireplaces show up here tucked beneath abstract paintings or entertainment centers, or centered in beautiful stone accent walls.
If pure white is your style, take a look at a central fireplace, open on all sides, with a hanging white “chimney” above it; if you’re a polished sort of girl, you’ll love the circular metallic fireplace suspended from the ceiling. Settle onto a plush velour couch of stone-gray, with light and air pouring in from sea-view windows, and kick back before the fire with your morning coffee; it’s pure relaxation. And you’ve got to love the wall-length fireplaces that bring a new meaning to “good things in small packages”: they’re narrow, but their subtle light is unbeatable. Whether your favorite here has a classic white mantel or brick wall around it, or is a “slice” of flame or a firebox tall enough for several logs…get warm with these spectacular images, and enjoy the best of the best with us!
