Firewalls dress the chimney

Firewalls dress the chimney

Indispensable to avoid projections, fireplaces are also an element of the decoration and must match the style of the fireplace. Traditionally made of wrought iron, the firewalls of yesteryear displayed arabesques . In often dark colors like black, brown or gray, they harmonize with classic fireplaces. Even older, some cast iron firewalls are inspired by the Louis XV style for example (see Stern). In one piece or with two or three flaps, the firewalls are more or less covering. In a more contemporary style, the glass firewalls are highly appreciated. Discreet and design, they go perfectly with modern fireplaces.Straight or curved , glass firebreaks offer a refined and sober aesthetic which favors the spectacle of fireā€¦ Finally, some original models stand out with unusual shapes and patterns. For example, the firewall from "La Maison Cassette". Made of metal, this firewall is inspired by the shape of the trees, reproducing the roots, trunk, branches and foliage. At Eno, the Fire Phantom firewall is a rib, for a very chivalrous style ... On the price side, count on average between 50 and 100 euros for a mid-range firewall. For more elaborate models, you will have to pay a few hundred euros.
