This is no ordinary fireplace. Housed in a custom-built wall unit, this fireplace not only acts as a dramatic, but fluid, way of dividing two living spaces (kitchen and living room), but it is two-sided! It opens up on both sides of the wall (with a TV above it on each side), to provide entertainment, warmth, and a sense of luxury to those in either room. The custom millwork on this design gives a traditional look that could be imposing due to the thickness of the unit, but the choice of white painted wood, a white mantle, and a white and grey quartz fireplace casing keeps the whole unit fresh and uplifting, with the eye focusing on the fire first, then following the curves of the pillars all the way up to the TV and ceiling. A clever and stunning way to both tie together and clearly divide two rooms. Click here to see the kitchen!
Though I found all of the people I encountered pleasant and helpful, Dan was a great person to work with. He was always patient and helpful and unfailingly service oriented. He was excellent at incorporating my ideas into the design.
