Top Picks in Contemporary Fireplaces Models for Winter 2016-17  

At Home and Hearth Outfitters, we have a wide variety of contemporary fireplaces to choose from. Our inventory of gas, wood and electric inserts and fireplaces include options from leading manufacturers including Enviro, Pilgrim, Ortal, Jotul, Town and Country, Marquis and others. Our team, which has been helping make homes beautiful and comfortable since 1992, has reviewed the best options from our selection of contemporary fireplaces and found the top three.

Modern and contemporary fireplaces have boomed in popularity in recent years. They are receiving constant mentions on HGTV shows and, as modern interior designs evolve, their styles fit in better with sleek, minimal designs. Not only are they more efficient, save money and run cleaner, they have a contemporary, sleek look that traditional fireplaces don’t. A linear-looking fireplace that burns on river rocks or with a single line of flames fits well with a large TV hung over it or with minimalist design. The contemporary look, however, still exudes the same warmth and cozy appeal of a fireplace that people know and love.

Here are the top three recommendations for contemporary fireplaces from the Home and Hearth Outfitters team:


Pacific Energy Brentwood Insert

Brentwood InsertPacific Energy, a company that has long established the standards in wood stoves, has pioneered new technology and high efficiency designs with the goal of being the leader in gas inserts and fireplaces. Pacific Energy’s precision engineering and top quality components deliver a long, trouble-free life, efficient heat transfer into your home and quiet operation as the unit heats and cools. Their inserts and fireplaces also have integrated micro-mesh safety screens to provide a near-invisible safety barrier.

Our team’s top pick is the Brentwood Insert, which is Pacific Energy’s largest gas fireplace insert. It has clean lines and a broad viewing area to enhance any home. Pacific Energy’s engineering, such as co-linear venting and aluminum cooling fins, provides maximum heat exchange and energy efficiency.
