In designing contemporary fireplaces, the project commences with a basic design concept. Then a simple measured image is drawn up, which then is transformed into a life-size representation that permits a more detailed look at the moldings and the carving details so that more minute dimensions can be determined. After all of this information is ascertained, the details are sent to a stone mill, and the materials are ordered (10-ton blocks are commonly ordered as a starter piece, but each project will require something different).
The fireplaces have become advanced and modern, in terms of both design and performance. Modern fireplaces have multiple functions such as the warming of the room with eco-friendly fuel, and because of their great design, can also be used as the focal point of the room. If you want to draw attention to a room without a piece of art, but still add style and functionality, consider a modern fireplace.
