Cool fireplace built by mason Lew French

Big stone fireplaces tend to be monolithic, unless they're the creation of Martha's Vineyard, Mass., mason Lew French. French's definition of rock leaps from boulder to pebble to ledge and beyond. Given free rein by the homeowners, French created a fireplace incorporating lichen-encrusted fieldstone, reclaimed stone slabs, and driftwood stacked as sensibly-and as randomly-as if it had occurred in nature. Along the way, French reinterpreted classic fireplace elements, from display niches to a detached hearth.
