Fireplaces have evolved since traditional home design. Many fireplaces are now freestanding and look like modern pieces of art in a room. Not only do fireplaces provide warmth but an element of elegance and mystique. Modern fireplaces are eco-friendly and emit no harmful emissions.

Fireplaces can improve home values and serve as conversation pieces. Ambiance or romance can be easily set by a fireplace. When the lights are lowered, modern fireplaces can act as meditation focal points when the light created flickers on the walls.

Recreational and Convertible Furniture

Urban dwellers seek innovative design and furniture with multiple purposes. Space conservation is of utmost importance in urban environments. Convertible furniture with dual purposes is common.

One of the most impressive pieces was created by designer James DeWulf. He created an innovative table to serve as a dining table and Ping-Pong table. The table is made of polished concrete made to withstand the elements and for unique visual appeal. The smooth tabletop is hand-finished and slightly colored with pigment.

This particular table can be used with interior or exterior furniture sets. Since the table is impervious to weather elements, it can remain outside all year. Concrete has unique design potential and is one of the most durable materials made. The freeze-thaw cycles, moisture and salt water do not affect this particular table design.
