Caminetti Montegrappa Frames Your Fireplace Finely

I love every one of these fireplace surrounds. Caminetti Montegrappa is an Italian company that makes fireplaces for air and water heating. They have branched into the luxury home market and have these stunning designs to make the room's focal point even more beautiful, dramatic, and interesting.

Implications - Fireplaces were once a dominating component of brick homes and log cabins as a necessary heating and cooking element. Modern kitchens and heating systems have largely made fireplaces obsolete, but they've found a new life in contemporary homes as a romantic design feature. Attractive fireplace surrounds fuse traditional heating mechanisms and modern tastes, turning standard fireplaces into modern, minimalist art pieces and adding pizzazz to an otherwise bland hearth.
