Welcome to our gallery featuring a collection of featured living rooms that have stone fireplaces as the focal point of the room.
Some of the living rooms in this collection are very casual, as seen above with the stone used as an accent to the wooden fireplace enclosure.
However, most of these rooms employ much larger stones in the construction of the fireplace and are styled in a much more rustic fashion.
These featured fireplaces may be enclosed in an all-stone accent wall, or they may be free-standing and dual-sided between two sides of a larger living room. Many have solid wood mantles, while others have small or non-existent hearths.
You’ll see both open fireplaces and glass-enclosed fireplaces, and you’ll also see screened fireplaces. While stone fireplaces are often associated with rustic interior designs, they work just as well in contemporary or even modern styles as well.
