With the right equipment in place, cozy fireplaces bring style and warmth to winter

Named for a medieval Spanish fortress-cum-palace, the stately Alhambra fireplace surround from Chesneys comes in a variety of sizes. Made of limestone, it balances a traditional form with clean, contemporary lines. chesneys.com

The horizontal line of an elongated flame complements a contemporary environment, and EcoSmart Fire’s popular XL900 linear burners are designed with that aesthetic in mind. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, they are fueled by bioethanol; a flip lid shut-off system ensures safety. Available in brushed stainless steel. ecosmartfire.com

An antique bow-front cabinet inspired the looped design on the Moore Fire Screen by Annapolis-based Niermann Weeks. The curved-steel screen marries the cutout motif with a steel-mesh backing; it can be customized to fit any fireplace. Myriad finish options include Venetian silver leaf; the screen can also be powder-coated for outdoor use. niermannweeks.com

Ortal’s Stand Alone freestanding natural gas fireplaces allow homeowners to install a fireplace with minimal construction. With a surface that remains cool to the touch, they come in an array of shapes and styles. ortalheat.com
