Luxury Living: 10 Fireplaces that Impress

Bold statements, focal points and hero pieces – if we’re speaking your language, you’ve come to the right place.

If you’re all about living luxe, appreciate good design and you don’t do things by halves, you’ll know how important first impressions are when it comes to home design.

Because people are naturally drawn to spark and flame, a fireplace is one of the easiest ways to embrace luxe living and is perhaps the best place to start. Whether you want to create the ultimate wow-factor or minimal luxury is more your style, one thing’s for sure, a fireplace will certainly raise the luxe factor and have your friends talking all night.

Double sided, extra-long or truly frameless, Escea’s Zero Clearance technology and sleek design means you’re spoilt for surround choice too. Wallpaper, bespoke cabinetry or living art right above, the sky’s the limit.

Check out our favourite luxury living spaces in the gallery below.
