We saw this over at the AT NY site, and thought it looked good for us west coasters, too. As Maxwell says, "This is a fireplace for those who just can't stand the heat (or don't have a fireplace)." The Plaza Fireplace ($3350) was designed by Conmoto and Seiger Design of Germany and "due to the fact that the open flame is produced by tins of burning gel, plaza may be placed anywhere in the home without it having to be connected to a chimney." Since we are blessed with sunny days, and cool nights, this looks like a real winner. Thanks, Maxwell!
