A Gas Fireplace and Built-In Combo
Both fireplace and bench, clad in salvaged wood, make a focal point opposite the bed.
This project was a whole house remodel and the chimney from the fireplace below ran up the house on the wall opposite the master bed. The design challenge was to make a focal point opposite the bed. A window could not be added due to the chimney placement. Instead, the gas fireplace and built-in bench were a great solution! Both the fireplace and bench are clad in salvaged wood. The design is asymmetrical but balanced; the fireplace is centered on the bed and the bench reaches out towards the west. The wood around the fireplace extends from floor to ceiling to give the illusion of height in the 8-ft.-high space.
