As fall is officially in the air, my thoughts turn to evenings spent seated in front of a crackling fire sipping on hot chocolate. My preferred fireplaces happen to be in the earthy modern design aesthetic according to a recent quiz, but I know that's not everyone's cup of cocoa. Here's a roundup of fireplaces, some minimal and some cozy, for us all to figuratively warm our hands.
