You never hear about folks curling up beside the radiator or gathering ‘round the space heater. It takes firelight to create ambiance like that. But obviously, not every home has a fireplace. That’s where Anywhere Fireplace, which was founded by Madi Ferencz and her son Peter de Voogd, comes in. With this self-contained unit, you don’t need a chimney or vent to enjoy a warm fire. There’s no gas or electric hookup required either.
The tabletop models include the Lexington, with its high-gloss paint finish; the Metropolitan, which pairs tempered glass and brushed stainless steel; and the Empire, a dramatic stainless-steel form with polished stones surrounding the flame. Most models burn bio-ethanol fuel, which is made from renewable plant resources and doesn’t give off any smoke, gas, soot, or ash. (One liter of fuel will burn for about 5 hours.) The Empire and Oasis models use a Gel Fuel that imitates the sound of a crackling fire (one can burn for up to 2.5 hours).
What sets these fireplaces apart is how easily (and affordably) they can create the perfect mood for a romantic evening, a gathering of friends, or unwinding after a long day. If you’ve always coveted a fireplace but lack a chimney, this is an elegant, eco-friendly alternative that’s all ambiance, and no fuss.
