This is way better than the fireplace channel they put on TV around the holidays. A freestanding heater with an LCD display gives you the look and feel of sitting in front of a fireplace.
Unfortunately, it's a Japanese product and as far as we can tell it's not available stateside and costs the equivalent of $242 American dollars. If you weren't able to score that apartment with a fireplace, you could easily install your own with this little unit. And we'd imagine it would be a greener solution than burning wood if you already have one.
