The freestanding closet once located just inside this home's entrance was replaced with this impressive new fireplace with stacked stone and painted black firebox. The firebox ties the black french doors into the room and pops against the neutral tones of the stone.
A modern outdoor firebox rests adjacent to the hot tub and pool in this entertainment-ready backyard. The transitional home features broad sliding doors that open the home's interior to its exterior living spaces. Sage green trim pops against the white stone exterior and ties in with the surrounding Texas landscape.
Instead of remodeling the fireplace, the designers at B&G Design installed custom cabinetry for a completely remodeled look. They incorporated vibrant red accents to counterbalance the traditional architecture and filled the firebox with elegant candles rather than logs.
This loft features a quartet of Kartell Louis Ghost chairs stand in for the more traditional sofa or club chairs. Because both the chairs and the firebox are transparent, they let the eye pass through to the views outside.
This fireplace commands all of the attention in this room. An extremely wide firebox allows the entire wall to become a fireplace object that the architect has clad in a textured stone, coarse and shadowed, yet it remains machined like the fireplace opening.
Fun, brightly colored fabrics liven up the neutral outdoor living space. An outdoor kitchen is fully stocked with a refrigerator, sink and grill, as well a bar area for eating. The stacked stone fireplace with herringbone firebox is the real focal point of the space.
This display skips the evergreen shoots and poinsettias, but not the seasonal feel. Large off-white vases filled with snow-colored tulips flank the firebox, while candles of different height and intensity create light and interest on the mantel.
The neutral color palette shines throughout this great room. With a mix of textures and tones, the great room is the hub for the family members to relax. Recessing the flatscreen and inserting the firebox within the basalt wall enables the focus wall to remain clean and contemporary without distraction.
This estate-size home in Connecticut has as much to enjoy outdoors as it does indoors, with a modern pool and an oversized lounge chair paired with a modern firebox. The contemporary, 14,000-square-foot house rests on 30 acres designed to revolve around magnificent water views of Lake Lillinonah in Litchfield County.
Not only is the fireplace kept low, but the firebox also features a glass back, creating a seamless transition from the indoors to the out. Tone-on-tone patterns are used on the throw pillows and area rug to bring much-needed texture to the contemporary space, while a classic bust adds a traditional note to the room.
Privately commissioned oil paintings set the mood for this living room setting. Casual, yet elegant, the space looks adult but is very family-friendly. A custom concrete and black glass natural wood burning firebox adds a masculine vibe, while the floral oil painting adds some femininity to the space. This is the clients favorite spot to sit, relax and enjoy the ravine view.
The organic nature of this great room dictated an unorthodox furniture layout, with a curved sofa acting as the anchor of this space. In order to create a contemporary and fresh focal wall, the existing firebox is combined with rich plaster and massive floating shelves. Careful attention to detail is seen in subtle elements like the layered use of lighting and restrained accents of bold colors and patterns.
