Wall-Mounted Fireplace by Vauni

Winter is looming and already the Duraflame logs are out for sale. A sad reminder that you live in an apartment with a stifling, rattling radiator instead of a a warm, crackling fireplace. Fortunately Vauni makes innovative fireplaces for the home that are as functional as they are stylish.

The Cupola is Vauni's latest sizzling sensation. The wall-mounted fireplace is actually made of light weight aluminum making it as easy to hang as a flat screen TV. Available in a black or white matte finish, the slender design looks like a modern sculpture even when unlit. And as far as technology, the Cupola is equipped with a bio-ethanol burner that allows for vent-less fires. So you don't even need a flue.

Now here's the bad news, as of the now Vauni does not deliver to the US. But hopefully with its success it will make it overseas soon. Until then you'll have to keep your toes toasty the old fashioned way − with an extra pair of socks.
