Modern Gas Fireplaces

Montigo Custom FireplaceMontigo makes custom modern fireplaces.

Low-profile “horizontal” fireplaces have the sleek, sophisticated look that frequently catch the eyes of my clients. These models are three (or more) times wider than their height.

Why are these horizontal fireplaces so attractive? Besides the refreshing shape, the design is as much about what you don’t see as what you do. Here’s how this fireplace style keeps the focus on the flames:

  • Minimalist framing—the metal surround is so simple it is barely noticeable.
  • No logs needed—higher profile fireplaces need logs to fill the vertical space.

Until recently, these fireplaces were only available in the US by means of custom fabrication. Now manufacturers offer ready-to-install models. Here are just a few: Click on the images below to go to the manufacturer’s websites.
