As a designer, I get emails from vendors trying to sell me their wares on a daily basis. Much of what I see are different versions of the same thing, but once in awhile something very special and unique comes through that I have to share. Today, I received an email from Focus Contemporary Fireplaces showcasing their incredibly special and unique fireplaces. Focus is the brainchild of Dominique Imbert, a French chef, ethnologist and literature professor turned sculptor and fireplace designer. After many different career attempts, Imbert settled on designing these unique pieces after he created a fireplace for himself and quickly received commissions to create more.
I have seen tons of cool fireplaces that are made to look like art or that seem to defy gravity; but while they all use an electric or gas flame, many of these are actually wood burning!
Check out the wonderful images of these amazing fireplaces.
