Tabletop Fireplace Fits Better In Cramped Apartments

Screen Shot 2014-12-18 at 12.46.13 PM

There’s something about a crackling fireplace that just screams Holiday Season, but that’s a luxury that apartment dwellers have long ago given up. It doesn’t have to be that way, and The Tabletop Fireplace is quite possibly the easiest way to approximate the experience, without burning the whole building down. It’s a self-containing fireplace that burns recycled liquid ethanol and gives off nothing more than CO2 and water vapour in the process. The flame gets up to around 7″ high, which is quite a bit less than a legit fireplace, but come on people… call it a compromise. For a bit of festive spirit right on your kitchen table, you’ll have to spend $160.

Serafin Wall Mount Liquid Fuel Fireplace

By David Ponce

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.
