19 of Our Favorite Fireplaces of the Year

Share It

There are so many reasons to covet a fireplace. They’re beautiful and bring charm to any space, and fireplaces provide yet another surface on which to style and display cherished items. Not to mention their functional value to heating a home, especially with a cold winter headed towards many of us.

Fireplaces create a statement in any room they’re in, so it is natural to use them to establish an aesthetic for a space. Having marble, wooden, brick, concrete, detailed, sleek, grand and/or petite features means that the varieties are almost endless.

Working or out-of-commission, the fireplaces we’ve been featuring here on Design*Sponge this year have left me longing for one of my own to replace my space heater. Some are modern, some are ornate and some saw their last real, crackling fires many years ago — but one thing’s for sure, they are all so dreamy. –Lauren

    Oh, that steel façade fireplace is just perfect. And any motivation I may have had to do something other than sit by the fireplace with coffee and movies on this gray Sunday is now out the window.
