Mid Century Modern in Fireplace Design

Posted by All Seasons Fireplace on Jan 12, 2018 3:40:00 PM

Iconic Mid Century Design stands the test of time. 

The Focus Fireplace returns to the scene and in both wood burning and gas burning products.

Like the Eames chair, good design inspires for generations and the Focus Fireplace is such a design. This suspended wood burning stove is a sculptural masterpiece first found on the scene in the Mid Century Modern design trend in the 1960s.

You might think of a James Bond hide out in the Italian Alps or a hip Tribeca loft when you see the Focus, but boring is a word that will not come to mind. 

 

Each Focus Fireplace is Manufactured by Hand

This Ergo Focus is manufactured by hand in Viols-le-Fort in the south of France.  The Focus wood burning fireplace line is being imported to the United States by European Home.  We have this fireplace on display in our showroom as the exclusive Midwest representative of the brand.

1. What is the size of the area you want to heat? All fireplaces are tested to see how many BTUs of heat they generate.  If you are heating a space with high ceilings and an open floor plan, you will want to consider a fireplace that generates more BTUs than a fireplace that would be found in a smaller room which is closed off from the rest of the house.
