When the temperatures drop and the days get shorter, your biggest dream is to watch a movie in the warmth of your house while sipping a boiling hot cupe of tea. So there is no best way to start the upcoming colder season than lighting your gas fireplace and create those especially cozy and welcoming vibes that only glowing fires can give. Along with the more traditional word burning fireplaces, a cutting-edge selection of gas fireplaces has just landed to the market: not only they heat up the house, but also provide a highly ornamental feature to all contemporary decor enthusiasts. Focus, the leading manufacturer of fireplaces in Europe, has recently released a brand new line versatile enough for all needs and tastes, and defined by strong aesthetics and ultimate comfort: indeed, the company’s most iconic wood-burning fires are now available in the gas-burning version too, which is equipped with a CE-certified gas burner that can operate either natural gas or propane (via the plug and play method).
Thanks to a remote control, they are easily adjustable while comfortably chilling on the sofa, and boast a utterly modern design: check out the cheekily sinuous Slimfocus; and BathyscaFocus, a suspended fireplace with spherical heart and elliptical opening; and also MeijiFocus, allowing for 360-degree views of the fire in complete safety.
Moreover, customers can now visualise the Focus model of their choice directly from home by using the Focus Creation augmented reality app downloadable from Google Play and Apple’s App Store. To use the app, place the target page in the location expected to accommodate the fireplace. Then just select a specific model and it will appear in 3D, embedded in the chosen setting. Also, both the position and the flue height are adjustable for optimal visualisation. What a great fit for those of you who are fond of fireplaces and cozy atmospheres, without sacrificing innovation and fine looks.
