Old School Fireplaces still Rock and Roll

I was surfing on the web yesterday and I found this company,Buckley Rumford Company. Simplicity and old school fireplace concepts, Buckley Rumford Company brought from the 18/19 century to our present day, the Rumford fireplaces style.

According to Jim ( Is there any tv show with this name ? or am i wrong ?…anyway….according to Jim “Rumford  fireplaces are tall and shallow to reflect more heat, and they have streamlined throats to eliminate turbulence and carry away the smoke with little loss of heated room air.  , with the extensive restoration of old and historic houses and the renewed popularity of early American and classical architecture in new construction, Rumford fireplaces are enjoying a comeback. Rumford fireplaces are generally appreciated for their tall classic elegance and their heating efficiency. ”

These huge fireplace on the first picture shows us the simplicity of the lines , classical design and nice combination of stone and texture, soapstone is one of them. It’s my favorite fireplace , but maybe I would use in outdoors.

The next three pictures show us how amazing it is when you  combine classical design and contemporary architecture. Again you can notice one of my best combos, STONE + WOOD ( light wood in my opinion ). I”ve never seen a fireplace so close to the swimmming pool, and you know what…its not a bad idea. Extra poit for Jeffrey D Sessler the designer.

The last picture is absurd !!! Its the biggest Rumford that they built, the fireplace is from 1999.

I would like to say thanks to Jim for the post tip…. Rumford company definly rock and roll.
