Always love a creative contradiction. Warm and inviting fire and stark and sleek minimalist design, both married to a fireplace bliss. Don't get me wrong; I love ornate designs, textured materials and decorated mantels as much as the next person but, hey, look at these fireplaces. Aren't they totally stunning in their simplicity? Like stripping off the unnecessary stuff and keeping just the essentials; a burning fire, a glass of wine and good company. It is, however, the details that make a difference (it's always them), like the way logs are stored/stacked by/under the fireplace (baskets are always a favorite solution), the fireplace door, should there be one, the baseboard usually used for protection and the bench for extra seating or for that design wow factor (yes, I'm talking to you, marble one). I would highly consider having such a fireplace in my home. Actually, that would definitely be my pick. Check out, after the jump, 10 of my most favorite minimalist fireplace design ideas!
