Very Disappointing

Robert from Saint Johns, FL– Verified Buyer

This unit arrived in 2 large boxes. Don't be fooled, the mantel is approx. 95 MDF and not furniture grade wood as indicated. The mantel arrived significantly damaged. I was able to glue and screw together some of the hidden broken pieces, however the top was beyond repair. Wayfair customer service was excellent in having a replacement top sent which was received 7 days after initial receipt. The white finish on the mantle is very good to excellent. The mantel requires assembly which was relative easy. The pieces do not fit together well and there gaps where joining pieces do not meet tightly. The right side was fine, the left side was off 116 in several spots. The fire box arrived undamaged and is as listed and works fine. I probably should have given this one star, however Wayfair customer service was excellent, and the fire box is nice. Would I recommend this to friend no. Would I buy another one no.

Very nice!

Cherie from East china, MI– Verified Buyer

VERY nice. Shipping was fast and package arrived in fine condition. Assembly was easy and took us less than an hour. Adds the perfect amount of warmth to a room that we rarely used, especially in cold weather. I was skeptical and unsure of purchasing something relatively expensive online, but am happy that I did because this fireplace is MUCH nicer than any I have seen in any furniture or home improvement stores.

Catherine from West Hempstead, NY– Verified Buyer

This fireplace was the best purchase in our new house. It is the first thing people compliment. It is really amazing. The fire looks MUCH better than it does in the picture and the added heat feature is great. VERY sturdy and easy to put together.

Barb, Chesterfield Michigan

Barbara from Chesterfield, MI– Verified Buyer

I was skeptical of purchasing something on line with out seeing it in person. Especially from a company I had never bought from nor heard of in the past. A friend of ours told us about this company and had purchased things from them with satisfaction. They also said they had great customer service. Both prior to purchase, during and after the customer service was great. This being our first purchase and happy with the product and company, I will absolutely purchase things again.

Beautiful and functional

Joni from Kansas City, MO

We placed this fireplace in the living room. We have an 18' ceiling there, and it was always the coldest room in the house in winter. The heat this fireplace puts out is ideal for taking the chill off the room. The mantle is gorgeous, my husband says it is well made and easy to put together. We did have some electrical work done prior to installation in order to have a dedicated circuit. We also built a hearth around it, which works well because the heat comes out 4" higher from the firebox - better for this room because of the high ceiling. It's perfect and we love it. Absolutely would recommend it.

J from MD– Verified Buyer

Fireplace was even nicer than we were expecting. Great unit for the price! Assembly was a cinch and the adjustable aspects of the unit are a nice touch. Can't comment yet on its ability to warm the room though we purchased it for ambiance, not as an energy saving unit. The fireplace really makes a statement in the room. We are very pleased.

Pleasantly surprised to find fireplace I had my eye on for months was on the "daily special" page and saved me tons of money. The fireplace,arrived in a timely fashion, and was easy to put together. It looks exactly as it does in photo, and quality is similar to much higher priced fireplaces. Perfect!

Beautiful fireplace! This piece is very sturdy and looks like it belongs in my family room. I plan to mount a flat screen above the tv and can't wait for the completed look. The fireplace puts out great heat and adds class to my room
