One of more contemporary models, Filadelfia, will make you fell you are in the heart of Paris. Clean and dynamic lines with superior finish, this is the piece you can enjoy being with for decades.

Finally, simplicity in design results in designs that do full justice to the unique beauty of the fire. It works very well as a space divider that bring warmth into large rooms.

If you think this fireplace is a work of some Italian designer, you are wrong: this is Marquis by Kingsman, a North American company. They are definitively place to go if you want something simple, yet warm and beautiful. With mor than 35 years of experience, Kingsman mixes craftsmanship with European-inspired designs and they lifted the traditional US fireplace skills to another level. Clean and straight lines, minimalistic but not boring design, and focal point that's subtle at the same time, those are all characteristics of Marquis.

And now here is one very interesting model by Superior Clay Corporation, a company founded more than 100 years ago. One of their Rumford fireplaces looks like it's been stolen from the old European castle: wide, robust, with a distinctive place for wood, this fireplace needs a lot of space but in turn it offers much more. We can imagine the whole family sitting in front of if while children are listening a fairy tale while grandma is preparing supper. With this fireplace in your home, you can say just one thing: "Let is snow!"

There is something old English in Ambler Fireplace & Patio's products. Maybe it is the design, maybe solid metal, maybe shapes... and most probably all that together. This fireplaces if interesting because it can find its place in both modern and more traditional rooms and it will lift both of them. It adds a touch of old dignity but in a subtle way, so you don't have to change to overall design of your space. Even if you don't have an old fireplace, or room for one, we think you can find the place for one of Ambler's models.
