A Modern fireplace is very
simple and has clean lines. It
has a new or contemporary shape,
style and finish.
A Traditional fireplace looks
like a family heirloom, seldom
in light woods. Ornate,
detailed, generally pretty heavy
and expensive looking. Has
details like curled metal,
ornate handles, marble tops,
A Transitional fireplace is
simpler than traditional, but
not 100% modern. Soft but clean
lines, would be at home in
“Better Homes and Gardens”. Some
overlap with Traditional. Would
make the item seem pretty
traditional with traditional
accessories and furniture or at
home in a modern environment
with more modern accessories.
A Rustic fireplace is heavy,
would be found in lodge, ski
resort, or log cabinet in
Arizona, Nevada or Vermont.
