Tips Of The Trade: Firebowls

The elements have been known to expire artists and designers, but architectural designer Elena Colombo takes it to a whole new level with her creative "fire features," that spin the traditional idea of a fireplace (not to mention, the art of sculpture) on its head.

To The Rescue: Firehouse Part 1

We recently received a letter from the Country Hills Volunteer Fire Company in New Jersey. These firemen risk their lives to rescue people everyday, yet their rec room is literally a wreck! The dark and dumpy space features outdated dormitory-style furniture, so we treat these heroes to a much-needed makeover of their hangout. Watch Part 2. Promotional consideration furnished by Benjamin Moore (paint), (furniture and accessories), Matt Wendorff, RPI Design Build (general contractor), Jill Vegas (lead designer), Floorcraft (floor installations,, call 973.271.8173), Mannington Mills, Inc. (flooring products), My Guy Appliance & Electronics (TV and stereo equipment), Duggal Visual Solutions (created and installed the oversized wall graphic of a firefighter), Wire Works Electric (electrical work, call 973.328.3333), The Picturewall Company, Inc.
