Hwam 3055 FS Freestanding Wood Fireplace
Designed by Denmarkâ€™s Strand + Hvass, the Hwam 3055 FS fireplace is EPA-certified and burns for four to five hours to provide heat for as much as 1,900 square feet of living space. It features a glass fire-screen that easily swings up. Drawing air across the glass, it stays fairly clean, and it can be removed for more meticulous cleaning.
