These Modern Fireplaces Are What Winter Dreams Are Made Of

We're obsessed with this little nook for so many reasons. First of all, it's basically a treehouse for really stylish grown-ups. Though each piece is one of a kind and seemingly random, they unexpectedly complement each other to create a cohesive and unique whole. Of course, the sleek white fireplace is an easy favorite, as it tethers everything together. The surrounding pebbles are a nod to the sprawling natural landscape outside, while the gold décor speaks to the modern pieces like the Lucite nesting tables, and the mod structure of the fireplace pairs perfectly with midcentury-modern furniture.
