Is there anything more inviting than a crackling fire on a winter's day? A fireplace makes a unique statement that no other architectural feature in a home can offer.
Whether your taste leans toward the classical or
the contemporary, a fireplace adds an element of elegance and interest to any room.

Thad Hayes kept this minimalist mantle simple and elegant.
Designer Andrea Crawford allowed the massive stone
fireplace to set the tone of this beautiful room.
As a child, I thought the main purpose of a mantle was to provide a
place to hang my Christmas stocking. As an adult, I appreciate the
welcoming warmth and camaraderie to be shared around the hearth.
Whether you enjoy a fireplace for the warmth it generates or for the aesthetic appeal, you won't find a better spot in the house for taking a nap!
