While in most cases the fireplace itself is the main attraction, the focal point of the room it’s in, sometimes the accessories and the décor around it can take that role. Wood-burning fireplaces require wood and storing it in a fashionable way can either be difficult or wonderful, depending on the path you choose. Firewood storage can be a blessing in disguise and can become the beautiful decor feature the room is lacking.

Two symmetrical vertical compartments are designed to keep the firewood nicely stored close to the fireplace. The one at the bottom is the one actually being used while the other one is a backup, for the sake for symmetry.
Instead of a vertical design, a horizontal approach can also look just as interesting. The firewood storage is built into a low window unit which uses it as an element of décor.
