Sleek & Minimal Fireplace

A simple MDF mantel offers an affordable update.

An old Art Deco-style fireplace was replaced with a crisp, white-painted wood mantel and minimalist surround. The new fireplace boasts clean lines that complement the contemporary look of the rest of the house. A glass waterfall coffee table provides a place to rest glasses without blocking the fireplace view.
