Fireplaces were once created to be functional and for those of you who need warmth whenever the mercury drops to levels which you cannot bear. Humans, however, always want something better and hence ushering in the new era of designer fireplaces. I personally have never been a huge fan of fireplaces, but this design has put something on my mind. Blomus of Germany have come up with the Vidro fireplace that looks simply stunning, finding a place in virtually any and every home as it is constructed from glass and stainless steel. Fuelled by gelled ethanol, the Vidro will retail between $969 and $1,174.
