When temps dip, there’s nothing quite like a crackling fire in the fireplace. Yet, each beautiful blaze also creates flames, embers and sparks that homes (and the people in them) need protection from. What’s a stylish, yet sensible solution? Decorative fireplace screens that do their job while also transforming hearths into fabulous focal points.
The open metal framework and glass center of the Shay fireplace screen creates a picturesque view that’s contemporary cool. $625.
The Pleasant Hearth Arched fireplace screen puts a clean-lined, contemporary spin on an iconic Gothic architecture element that echoes the calm feel of the fire within. $61.
The Chevron brass fireplace screen adds a touch of mid-century style with its bold chevron pattern. $249.
With its soft scalloped frame accented with delicate florals and leaves, the Artemis folding fireplace screen romances the room. $129.99.
Handcrafted and soldered with 541 pieces of art glass, the Stained Glass fire screen adds gem-like sparkle and is simply stunning. Its price is also more than fair for the look and workmanship that goes into it. $279.95
What I like about each of these screens is that they create beautiful focal points year-round. That’s an idea we design lovers can warm up to very easily.
