Decorative woodpile

Decorative woodpile in pseudo-furnace is one of the easiest options to “recover” a false fireplace. This solution looks pretty impressive, as if the logs “were waiting for” the fire, and you just needed to burn them (which, of course, you should not do). Choose fragrant wood (juniper, birch or pine needles), then your house will immediately filled with the pleasant aroma.


In order to safely make a real fire in your fake fireplace it is enough to equip it with a small mirror portal, and put a few large candles inside the portal. They will illuminate the entire room with a romantic shimmer, reflecting in the mirror. And if you buy scented candles, you can also fill the room with warm and subtle hints of vanilla, cinnamon and musk.

Custom decor

Some would say, that a fireplace should be filled with fire.  But we are the supporters of unconventional ideas. If you want to make your interior a truly distinctive and unusual, you can fill it with all that you like. Thus, adherents of ecological lifestyle can put green plants in false furnace; book lovers can put their favorite books into the portal, etc.
