Turn Your Firewood Into a Focal Point

Fireplaces are and always been a hot commodity, and also the demand of modern convenience has birthed various options to the wood-burning design. Yet, there’s one component that retains many faithful and accurate to the first, wood-burning fireplace: wooden logs.

The presence of firewood immediately evoke feelings of warmth, relaxation, and admiration for nature and her bountiful supply. When cut and piled vertically or horizontally, wood takes on a sculptural look frequently taken for granted. Rather than storing logs outdoors, they now are being saved in convenient wall nooks that display their natural beauty.
