A show-stopping minimalist fireplace design in your living room will have a clean-lined aesthetic that is both visually pleasing and create a contemporary warmth. The furnishings that surrounds the fireplace should accent it, but also be inviting and comfortable to encourage friends and guests to sit down and enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a sleek fireplace design. Creating a statement piece in your living room involves selecting the right firebox that will fit in your design scheme and deciding on the intricasies that will complete the looks, such as hearth, surround, etc. When it comes to fireboxes, the current trend seems to be creating a flawless focal point with fire ribbons, which are flames produced by gas that are broad yet narrow. The aesthetic is contemporary but minimalist, replacing faux logs with rocks, sand or glass. The idea is a flickering flame rising out of one of the selected materials to add plenty of warmth and beauty to the space. Have a look through our collection of minimalist fireplace designs to be inspired to incorporate one into your living room design scheme.
