14 Modern Fireplace Screens That Add the Perfect Decorative Touch to Any Living Space
Is there anything cozier than cranking up your fireplace on a cold winter’s day (or even a cool summer evening)? Whether of the wood-burning or gas variety, it’s always a good (read: safe) idea to contain the flames and ash spewn forth from your fireplace with a protective fireplace screen. Though I love the look of an ornate brass peacock screen as much as the next guy, it’s not always simple to find a streamlined, contemporary version to coordinate with more modern room designs. Thankfully, with the mid-century modern and contemporary movements not going anywhere anytime soon, finding a modern fireplace screen that won’t cramp your style has actually gotten a lot easier. From simple, streamlined picks and art-deco-inspired screens to pieces that can serve as an art piece in their own right, we did a little virtual digging and found 14 modern fireplace screens you’ll love adding to your living space today.
