Hanging fireplace designs

These designs are extravagant, stunning, and original. Suspended from the ceiling, they look spectacular. The contemporary design brings impressive and unusual modern fireplaces

to home décor. A ceiling fireplace takes up no valuable wall and floor space and adds a stunning and creative contemporary design.[1]

Various shapes are available, such as flying saucers, helmets, and oysters. A French company, FOCUS, came up with the Gyrofocus design. Dominique Imbert, from the south of France, was the first to design a hanging fireplace. It became a classy and luxurious design for the modern interior. The Gyrofocus ceiling hanging fireplace was the first rotating design.[2]

The development of the 360-degree pivoting fireplace coincided with the remodel of a farmhouse in the village of Viols-le-Fort.[3] The seminal design was revolutionary for its groundbreaking style and technical innovation. Its heat efficiency, made-to-measure flue, and ease of installation make the fireplace a symbol and signature FOCUS model.

Another FOCUS creation is an outdoor fireplace called the Ergofocus. The Ergofocus is as beckoning as a mischievous and rustic campfire.[4]

For an ideal balance of technology and style, the Bathyscafocus is more of an award than a fireplace. The round, compact fireplace nods toward the sea. It provides a discreet, calm, and warm presence. The fireplace pivots – turn it to any point in a living space.

The electric fireplaces are ideal for urban bungalows and lofts. The gorgeous design ideas look fabulous in modern houses and cottages. Suspended wood-burning stoves open on two sides are perfect for mounting in the center of a room. It creates cozy seating around a hanging fireplace. The fireplace works well in a corner also..

One of FOCUS’s most revolutionary fireplaces stylistically is the Slimfocus. The options are a suspended fireplace that pivots or one fixed in place, supported by a base. It takes up little space in a living room. FOCUS developed a wall mount version in response to the demand that the Slimfocus be capable of connecting to a smoke flue.[5]

The wall mount model unites the clarity and elegance of a high-relief sculpture. It has exceptional heat performance. Jean-Claude Bordelet is a winning fireplace designer who handcrafted a hanging wood fire. The Bordelet fireplace comes through a dedicated pursuit of excellence and years of artisan engineering.

An inviting modern fireplace is the perfect centerpiece for your living room.[9]

An electric fire pit is an excellent option for those who want a cozy place to talk with family and friends, read, or hang out to play board games without worrying about low temperatures. It uses no logs or anything used in a traditional fire pit. There is no need for professional installation or venting.[10]

Advantages of hanging fireplaces

  • Realistic fires
  • Instant warmth and ambiance
  • Wide options to choose from

Ceramic logs look like the real thing. Many are hand-made and hand-painted to seem realistic. Sacrificing aesthetics for functionality is not necessary. The convenience offered by gas fires sells gas-powered fireplaces. Fans and blowers circulate heat throughout the room. Gas-powered fireplaces have more flexibility. With vent-free gas fire units, there is no need for a traditional chimney.[11]

Safety concerns

Hanging fireplaces are hazardous if not properly secured. A suspended ceiling fireplace that hangs in the middle of a room is beautiful, and safe if the structure is solid. Contemporary fireplace designs offer various styles that are a safe and inexpensive way to add personality to interior décor and design.

There is a concern by families with young children about accidental burn possibilities. Other common concerns are gas leaks, a gas fireplace explosion or fire, and chimney fires. Proper safety precautions and maintenance make an electric stove or fireplace a safe feature in the home.

An electric fireplace is typically the safest type. Electric fireplaces are an excellent option for those who want a low-maintenance, safe fireplace.

A well-maintained wood fireplace that has a barrier screen is another superb option. The barrier prevents the escape of embers and keeps pets and children from getting too close.

A gas fireplace has more automatic features than those that burn wood. The glass front is only decorative. Direct vent gas fireplaces must have a barrier screen to avoid contact with the hot glass front. 

Floating fireplaces require greater precautions to prevent contact with the hot exterior.

A freestanding fireplace needs a barrier on all sides. Fans and blowers circulate heat throughout the room.
