Ultra Modern Fireplaces by Elena Colombo

Spending more time and money on our outdoor spaces has been a growing trend for a while now, and fire pits and fireplaces are a huge part of outdoor décor. That being said, the fire-features that are becoming available on the market now are more sleek, modern and luxurious than ever before.

The fire sculptures here from Colombo Construction Corporation are dramatic examples of the future of outdoor accessories. I love the burning steel rocks and balls, and the cantilevered flaming waterfall called 'Fire Spill' is stunning. They are made of steel, bronze and stainless steel, and are equipped to burn either propane or natural gas, so they burn cleaner and are more convenient and safer than wood.

The Colombo Construction Corporation is owned by architectural designer Elena Colombo of New York, whose collection also includes wind and water features.
