Safretti wall-mounted fireplace blends primitive fire with chic sensibility

There’s something powerfully appealing about a wall-mounted fireplace, and this one has a subtlety we haven’t seen before. The Safretti Gaya fireplace places a billowing torch-like flame on your wall, adding a dramatic decorative flourish to your pad while satisfying that firebug jones you know you have.

Looks dangerous. But don’t start thinking this alcohol-burning fixture is going to blast the heat like a real fireplace does — it’ll only emit 7.1kW of heat if you burn a liter of fuel in an hour — but hey, you can’t beat that ambiance. This model is so new, Safretti isn’t listing prices yet, but this kind of high style doesn’t come cheap.
