Searching for a fireplace…

I Have long had an obsession love for

those vintage/retro metal fireplaces

Think ski lodge in the 70’s

or I do…cuz that is where we met

We even have one in the Casita…

and it is used many a night.

Look how cozy….and this is just filled with Christmas lights.

But

lately….

I have been on the hunt for another.

for outside.

where we often sit by a fire. That is currently far less cool. Far less hip. far less ski lodge.

I would love this…

Hello gorgeous…

Malm is still making these same fireplaces they developed in the 60’s.

They started out as a metal manufacturing company

and played around with designing fireplaces on the side.

Quintessential cool.

In my book.

But I am gonna keep on looking on craigslist.

Anyone have one? Or two?

I had one in my house in Colorado - that was 32 years ago! Used it all the time and it worked great. Haven't seen many as of late but what a great idea to use it as an outdoor fireplace!

Our neighbors found one on Craigslist last summer, and I've been envious. We don't have a fence between us, so I DO get to enjoy looking at it. Love the photo with the Christmas lights!

Those are interesting alternatives to the usual brink and mortar fireplaces. I’m sure a lot of people would appreciate having one of those – not only because they look good, but also because they look like they would consume less space than a traditional fireplace. Though that first one does look like it would make any room seem like a ski lodge cottage. Haha! Anyway, thanks for sharing these fireplace ideas with us, and good luck with your search!
