Modern design trends increasingly influence the choices today’s style-savvy homeowners make when decorating their homes. This move toward a more contemporary look now extends to fireplaces with the launch of the Heat & Glo™ brand Modern Collection.
Showcasing sleek, clean line designs, the Modern Collection re-introduces the fireplace as a contemporary design element and lifestyle statement. The Modern Collection consists of seven whole hearth packages that challenge the traditional fireplace rules of function and form. These packages bring together style and elegance creating new hearth options for virtually any room of the home. From the bedroom to the kitchen to the bathroom to the foyer, the Modern Collection allows homeowners to express themselves through fire.
“Sophisticated homeowners want living environments that more closely reflect their personal lifestyle and tastes,” says Susan Hilt-Lagos, Brand Manager, Heat & Glo. “Research shows that 38 percent of homeowners prefer to decorate in a contemporary style. Our new Modern Collection meets this need by creating truly contemporary hearth experiences. Homeowners now have a unique and a stylish way to use fire to transform traditionally utilitarian rooms into refuges for relaxing and re-charging. ”
Paloma™ Free-standing Gas Fireplace
Winner of this year’s top hearth industry award, the Paloma free-standing gas fireplace features a sleek European-design that fits nicely with the modern look of many loft-style and multi-family homes. It has a compact footprint, clean line design and parabolic shape to coordinate with today’s modern style trends while still providing a generous view of the fire at virtually any angle. Available as a standalone unit or with a cast stone surround, the Paloma also features a double glass front design in four different tints to complement various interior color schemes.
Everest™ Gas Fireplace with Atlas™ Surround
Whereas most fireplaces are wider than they are tall, the Everest goes in a different direction. The European style ("taller than wide" opening) of the Everest offers homeowners a fresh new look that provides a distinct fireplace experience. Enhancing its European appeal, the Everest is available with the Atlas surround. A seamless, one-piece cast stone surround, the Atlas offers a bold yet contemporary look that is ideal for homeowners seeking to make a unique design statement.
Soho™ Gas Fireplace with Studio™ Front
The Soho invites homeowners to re-think the fireplace and toss out old notions about where it should go and what it should look like. It features a compact square shape and shallow design, making it ideal for creative applications within the home. Conveying a framed painting appearance, the Soho with the Studio front enables the model to mount on a wall and look as if it were hung like a work of art. In addition, accent lighting and electric embers can illuminate the firebox interior year-round, with or without flame.
Soulstice™ Gas Fireplace with Halo™ Surround
The Soulstice gas fireplace gives homeowners the opportunity to comfortably enjoy a stylish fireplace in intimate spaces such as the master suite where ambiance matters the most. It offers low heat output enabling homeowners to comfortably enjoy a fire as for extended periods. Homeowners can also program the unit to automatically light anytime, making it a much more inviting way to wake up than an alarm clock. It is available with the Halo™ surround, which features modern styling, curved lines and a metallic finish for a contemporary look. The Soulstice comes standard with a sleep timer so homeowners can fall to sleep to the warmth and beauty of a fire.
Cyclone™ Gas Fireplace
Creating a unique whirling flame inside a concentric glass design, the Cyclone offers a 360-degree view of the fire. It is available as a standalone glass cylinder or as a wall mount with a black nickel frame and the choice of a brushed nickel or brushed copper front. The wall mount model also features a highly polished metal back, creating a mirror effect and the appearance of additional whirling flames. Considered decorative illumination, the Cyclone’s captivating flame gives homeowners a new opportunity to customize or enhance the ambiance of any foyer, stairway, lobby, bar, recreation room or entertaining area.
