The Evo Affinity flattop grill features a circular design that's perfect for social cooking and offers major versatility when it comes to grilling, roasting, searing, smoking, steaming and baking your favorite foods!

#5 DIMPLEX OPTI-MYST MODERN HOME UPDATE

A Temecula, California customer updated their modern, open concept home with an amazing half wall of fire using the Dimplex Opti-Myst Pro 1000 electric fireplace!

The Dimplex Opti-Myst Series of electric fireplaces has the most realistic flame display on the market, and is the only 360-degree fireplace with no installation restrictions. Since the flames are created using water vapor and no heat is produced, the Opti-Myst is completely safe for installation in this type of location.

The beautiful, misty flame presentation and soothing orange glow of the Opti-Myst Pro 1000 is a creative way to make a subtle division between spaces while providing the mesmerizing ambiance of a traditional fireplace.

We worked with the incredible artisans at Fire by Designs to create this beautiful custom fire feature for the Wilderness Veterans Memorial Flame Foundation (WVMFF)!

The WVMFF is a monument located in the Northwoods of Wisconsin dedicated to memorializing the brave men and women who have served our country.

The monument is made from black granite and features the Eternal Flame of Honor for all veterans at the very top. The fire feature uses Fire by Design's commercial-grade all-weather electronic ignition system (AWEIS) and is fueled by natural gas to ensure the flame will never go out!
