The Reinvented Fireplace


My husband and I often discuss our must have's for a future home that we will one day own. Whether it be in the city or the burbs one thing that is always mentioned is the importance of a fireplace. We both have a big time love affair with them and hope to have a home filled with them down the road. Something about a crackling fireplace is so cozy, romantic and soothing. I find myself drawn to fireplaces over and over. I even suggested this portable one in my gadget gift guide. So you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon this egg shaped beauty designed by Fredrik Hylten-Cavallius. I knew instantly I had to share this gilded gem with you all. Piet is a chimney free indoor fireplace that uses ethanol to burn. Those golden tiles not only look modern and chic but are brass reflectors that will provide light and warmth to the room the Piet is in. The best part is that outter egg like shell never gets hot so it's safe too! It is the perfect marriage of style and function. Only problem is it's not available yet - booooo. I however think when it does, it will be a huge success thanks to its modern design, metallic finish, and portability. Would you have this in your home???





Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones!!!
