Featuring the SPARK Linear Burner System Indoor
“This fireplace is one of two Spark, Linear Burner Systems used in two different rooms in the same project, a private residence in the greater Boston area. I used different materials in each fireplace to give each room its own unique charger. In the Living Room, a much used room, the idea was to have a focal point that drew your attention, even if fireplace was not on, so I used back lit, onyx panels to highlight that end of the room creating a warm, glowing surface, evocative of the lighted fireplace.”
