Sky T Fireplace


The hottest trend is linear, clean, all-glass fireplaces, says Preston Meyer of Hearth and Home Specialties in Calgary. With no bulky frame or overbearing mantel or surround, the linear look is all about less is more. Forget extraneous material and think glass and flame, like the new Sky T fireplace by Element4. Go front-facing, peninsula-style or see-through and choose your media kit—stone, glass, log— and then just let the flames do the talking.
