Having a fireplace in your home is nice and all, but it usually requires quite the commitment, construction-wise. There’s a chimney to be built, for one. And you need to make room for it too. Finally, if you live in an apartment, you can pretty much forget it. Unless of course you get a fireplace that you can hang on the wall, like a painting. The Serafin Liquid Fireplace mounts on a wall and burns an ethanol based fuel that allegedly produces no soot or smoke, so there’s no need for a chimney or flue.
It’s not the first indoors, chimney-less fireplace we’ve seen, but it’s the first time we see one that mounts on a wall. If you’re working on decking out your bachelor pad, there’s very few things that would fit better than a fireplace so the $649 asking price might be considered a wise investment.
