Front + Center Hearth Song

A cozy fireplace—smartly accessorized —brings warmth to winter

Front + Center Hearth Song Elegant Style
Designer Kelly Hoppen has teamed with U.K.-based Chesney’s to create a collection of elegant fireplaces and accessories. “The fireplace has been an item that just sits in the home and we design around it,” Hoppen says. “I wanted to make the fireplace the focus of the room.”  The Beckett (pictured above) is fabricated from limestone. $7,700. kellyhoppen.com; chesneys.co.uk

Modern Lines
The sleek, modern Zelia 908 can hang suspended or rest on the floor. Designed by French manufacturer JC Bordelet, the wood-burning, glass-enclosed metal fireplace is available in a range of colors and styles through Ortal in the U.S. $15,950. ortalheat.com; 818-238-7000. bordelet.com

Vintage Vibe
Accessories can set the scene—for example, Plow & Hearth’s sturdy Wrought Iron Ball Andirons, which impart a vintage vibe with their twisted-rope and ball-finial design. A center leg prevents sagging from heat or weight. $259.95. plowhearth.com
