What's with all the fire posts? Seriously, you'd think we live on s'mores or something. Wait. Oh, I guess we do. At least on graham crackers anyway.
These are becoming a lot more popular. Why? First, they are unique and beautiful. They have a nice modern look, but can also be very classic and subtle, too. They use natural gas and actually give off great heat, unlike other fire elements that are more for show. Here you may actually take your sweater off and enjoy a cool summer evening.
Also, I love these because there is no smoke with the natural gas, always a bonus since it means less laundry and stinky guests. Besides, you won't look like an idiot dodging those annoying smoke clouds like you do with a wood-burning fire. And a lot safer than the real thing, too.
Easy to cover when not in use without looking out of place.
Did I mention they turn off/on with a remote? I think it's time to sit back and enjoy those cool summer evenings.
