Based in Australia, this company has built its name creating fireplaces that are both beautiful and ecologically sound. The freestanding, vent-free models are not only elegant furniture pieces, but they’re also easy on the environment: Each is powered by bio-ethanol, a renewable liquid fuel produced from agricultural byproducts, that burns clean and generates no smoke. And they’re efficient, too: Since they don’t need a flue or chimney, all the heat produced during combustion stays in the room.
This winter, flank your mantel with a pair of terracotta finials or faceted candlesticks with crystal drops. Down below, cluster vases and cachepots and above it all hang a mirror, like the round rustic-chic design we tracked down from Barreveld. If you don’t have a flue, try one of Eco Smart Fire’s sleek, portable designs. And don't forget, as a final touch add plenty of cashmere throws.
Chic furnishings inspired by the country's most exclusive coastal enclave
EcoSmart's sleek fireplaces were designed with the urban dweller in mind, though they'll perform just about anywhere. Whether you choose a custom-insert model for your living room or a freestanding outdoor design, their savvy systems are clean-burning and vent-free — and they require no gas or electricity connections.
