Since a fireplace always is the design center of a space, why not make it truly dramatic and unique? Arkiane offers these two wall-mounted incarnations. 'Icoya' is designed after an Inca goddess who resembled a butterfly, and the flame design is by Yan-Li. The Arkiane fireplaces are offered in a wide variety of color combinations.

Implications - Even something as extraordinary and traditional as a fireplace can be turned into something bold and striking, and being unafraid to strike out from the expected is definitely a sign of a company eager to entice adventurous customers. These fireplaces show how form and function need not be mutually exclusive, and how products that enhance their surroundings rather than simply exist within them are infinitely more appealing than their boring counterparts.
