Upon first glance, one might think, "This looks cool and all, but what's the purpose?". And the answer is that it's actually an on-trend way of childproofing the fireplace!

While most childproofing efforts don't exactly make our homes into havens of style, this one over at Rook does! By stacking firewood in the firebox, children are prevented from climbing inside. From Leila at Rook:

I thought I'd send you a pic of how we have kid-proofed our fireplace - an idea I haven't seen before in this context. I simply stacked firewood in there and it stops them crawling in and getting covered in black soot.

Love the look, Leila. And an extra bonus point for it making the home a little safer for the wee ones.
