This is such a unique fireplace! It is definitely the focal point in this room. It reminds me of the inside of a tee pee because that's where they put their fire, so the smoke goes up through the middle to the outside. And it has these huge wood "spokes" coming out from the center, which kind of resembles a wheel. What I really like about this is that the fireplace goes way up, past the "spokes", all the way to a very tall ceiling. I wonder what the rest of the house looks like?
I am not sure why the chairs are facing different directions. It leads me to believe that there is another sitting area facing something else, like a window or something. I would like to visit this home, or own it for a retreat.
