5 Favorites: Simple Fire Screens

Janet Hall February 24, 2014

The death of the wood-burning fireplace doesn’t mean the end to the flaming hearth. Wood stoves, gas fireplaces with glass doors, and even fireplaces repurposed with collections of candles still call for screens to keep household members a safe distance from burning surfaces. Here’s a roundup of our favorite simple screens that do the trick.

 

Above: The Wire Fireplace Screen of powder-coated iron and wire is ideal for smaller fireplaces (it measures 30.25 inches square); $140 at CB2.

Above: The Industrial Fireplace Single Screen is made of iron and zinc with a blackened finish. It’s available in two sizes: 38- and 44-inches wide; $159 and $199 respectively at Pottery Barn.

Above: San Francisco company Okell’s Fireplace offers a wide range of fire screens (including a few models from Chesney’s, a UK company); we especially like the Okell’s Original Steel Gleam screen; contact Okell’s for pricing.

 

Above: Made with graphite powder-coated wrought iron, the Minuteman Twisted Rope Fireplace Screen has folding side panels connected to a 30-by-30-inch center panel; $213.86 at Wayfair.

Above: The hand-forged and hammered Rivet Hearth Flat Panel Screen from Restoration Hardware is 39 inches wide; $299.
