Fireplaces are compelling, sometimes even exotic, features of a room. More than simple household decoration, they combine elements of the practical & the artistic in both architecture & design. This beautifully crafted House Beautiful volume explains everything one might ever want to know about fireplaces. There are three parts to the book: a style survey, a section on architecture, & another about design & decoration. Each section elucidates relevant need-to-know data, using visual examples of traditional, modern, & site-specific fireplaces for a variety of rooms & homes. For example, included in the design section are suggestions for furniture placement, lighting, & firewood storage, while decoration speaks to furnishings on or around the mantelpiece, fire screens, off-season usage, & placement of logs & andirons. World-renowned architects & designers provide ingenious solutions to fireplace design for any décor. There is an abundance of tips on integrating a fireplace with the overall ambiance of a room--the art, light, walls & floors. An arresting & beautiful visual portfolio covering all conceivable locales & styles, House Beautiful Fireplaces will inspire a lasting glow.
