Pattersons Architects designed this beautiful house in New Zealand that has the most amazing and unique modern stone fireplace. Stone can be quite rustic and raw, but the open design of the fireplace makes it really modern at the same time. The flames sit a top a semi-glossy looking white slab while whimsically dancing around those metal rings. The stone backdrop ties everything together for a cozy, contemporary look. We love how each element of this fireplace design has its own defining characteristics but when put together in this way, they have a symbiotic relationship. We are really enjoying the rest of the room too. See more from .
