Pangaea’s Picks: Top Ten Fireplaces

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

As the rain has started to come down in sheets and the nights have turned COLD, my fireplace has been put into use in a big way. Many years ago, urban living in lofts, condos and apartments meant living without a fireplace. But technology has changed all of that. One potential client who recently contacted me said his one concession in buying a condo in the John Ross Condomiums in the South Waterfront district was to forego a fireplace – but we have a solution for him. Another client in The Wyatt high rise apartments in the Pearl District had a fireplace listed as one of her first items to add to her decor. I was also in the 937 Condominiums in the Pearl District last week and felt sad that for almost half a million dollars, you end up with no fireplace! So, this post is for you! Whether you have a condo in the Pearl or South Waterfront, or a house where there is no built-in fireplace, with today’s technology, there is now a fireplace for everyone, every room, and just about every budget! Read on to see several fireplaces that can be added to homes without an existing one. There are free-standing models,  wood burning models, environmentally friendly models, suspended ones and wall hung types. Links on where to shop for these are at the end of the article. Make yourself a nice cup of cocoa and imagine sitting next to one of these!

3. This Eurofocus has nice clean lines and is angled to look great in a corner.

4. Rais is just simple and lovely.

5. What top ten list would be complete without the modern classic Fireorb suspended fireplace?
