A modern fireplace with dimensional stone creates the perfect focal point. There are so many neutral natural stones used to create custom fireplace mantles design detail . The most common ones are limestone, travertine, marble or quartzite.
Dimensional Stone Tile Detail
Designer Annalies used a fluted Terrazzo tile from Ann Sacks inside the custom mantle fireplace piece. What a unique design detail.
When in doubt just keep it simple. The white fireplace with a subtle mantel. The decor detail is the paneled wood wall above the mantle that goes up the ceiling. The built in open shelves and the beams are my favorite detail.

Mid Century Modern Fireplace Design Style
If you are a fan of midcentury modern design, you are in for a treat. This warm and inviting space by Caprini Pellerin Architects stopped me in my tracks.
The recessed mantle with the texture wood panels gives this room such a sophisticated look.
The metallic mantle with clean lines standing out as a framed art. The details of backdrop wall , the juxtaposition of textures adds class and interest.
Solid Stone used in Fireplace Design Style
Creating a unique look requires unique, one of a kind of materials. Natural stone slabs have been used for a long time to create marble fireplaces.
The latest trend these days is using full natural stone slabs and installing them up to the ceiling. Below is a an example of Calacatta Gold marble slab bookmatch fireplace.
The marble slabs can get very expensive specially if you have a large area to cover. There is a less expensive alternative in the market. Factory manufactured porcelain slabs are now available with the same marble look/pattern printed on them and they cost 50-60% less than what real marble slabs cost.
Below are two fireplaces designed with porcelain slabs.
The two fireplace designs above used very large stone look bookmatch porcelain slab. These slabs are available in a variety of options.
