In the last few years fireplaces have seen unprecedented developments, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality, and now are available in models suited to all types of settings and styles. They help create charming, imaginary microcosms that conjure up cosiness and relaxation, to be enjoyed alone or with our loved ones. They evoke profound feelings of homeliness and are imbued with sweet nostalgia.
This book aims to provide an introduction to the world of fireplaces from the viewpoint of contemporary architecture and interior design, as well as to explore various themes from a practical and aesthetic angle.
