A fireplace has the ability to turn a house into a home. In New England, many have experienced the joy of warming their toes after a day in the snow or gathering around the fire during a cold, winter’s night. Whether you’re partial to the convenience of a modern gas or electric fire or one who lives for the ritual of building a wood fire, you know how a fireplace can bring a family together.
One question rarely asked, however, is: do you love your fireplace even without the flame? Winters may be long, but how much joy does your fireplace bring you during the summer? For year-long elegance, accenting a room with a stone fireplace surround is the ideal design element. Whether you’re showcasing a room or treating yourself to extravagance, a fireplace surround is the perfect design focal point to bring people together.
