After all, it's a fake fireplace! Yes, it's a little cheesy looking but we enjoy the extra heat and the ambience. And there's a remote!! Not to mention no chimney sweep needed. We bought it for a specific corner of our living room In order to make the best use of the space, and it's holding our 55 inch television just fine. The finish is a little more yellow and then I would have liked, but certainly not a dealbreaker. Like all assemble it yourself pieces it'll never pass for a fine antique. But that wouldn't have a built in fake fireplace to make you laugh, now would it?

The package arrived 3 days after purchasing, the box was a little dinged, but everything inside was unharmed. It went together in less than an hour. But what's the fire look like??? That was my main concern with purchasing an electric heater. I really wanted the gel fuel type, but decided the fuel would get too pricey and decided to go with this kind, all the while skeptical of what the flames would look like. I think they look pretty good! I've seen some that look terrible, but this has a nice orange yellow glow, looks like some real flickering at the tops, and the ability to turn down the brightness of the flames and log with 5 levels for each is nice. I tool a video and wanted to attach it, but can't. In short, I'm pleased!

This ivory media console fireplace exceeded my expectations in terms of looks. Be aware, though, that the "fireplace" and the "logs" are small (rather dwarf-sized). I chuckle at how small the logs are, but the unit is right for my small house. However, the "fire" and "glow" of the logs look realistic. I really like that there are different control options -- have the fireplace on with or without the heat, have the heat at different temperatures, have the logs at different glow/flame intensity, and have a timer. Be aware that the heat is fan-heat (warm/hot air blows out from a vent above the fireplace). Also, the ivory color in person is a shade darker/yellower than the website photo as appeared on my computer screen. In my case, 2 middle-aged women assembled the piece. It took about 3.5 hours. Most of the time was spent on trying to line up the holes in one particular piece and trying to make one side door fit. The manufacturing construction isn't perfect -- there's one place where the joints don't meet perfectly, and one instance where holes don't up evenly. Having an electric screwdriver helps a lot. It's also good to have a hammer ready to gently nudge some pieces in place. And, as with any furniture that needs assembly, the directions could be clearer, but we managed. In the end, I love the result, and I recommend it highly for a small house/apartment.

My small livingroom had been missing something for years and then after an episode of one of my favorite TV shows I saw what my room needed - a fireplace! And this fireplace completely fits in with the size of my room and the decor. When I initially took the wooden pieces out of the box I thought the ivory color of the pieces had a slight green tint to it but once I assembled the fireplace and placed it against my creamy yellow wall, surprise - the color looks exactly like ivory should. I had some help with the assembly which took about an hour but I could have put another fireplace together in half that time if I did it again. I hung a large mirror above it and the fireplace is now complete.The quality is excellent and while I have not used it yet for heating purposes I am totally smitten with this fireplace and love that something this compact can add so much beauty to a space. You can find this fireplace on-line for more money but why purchase it anywhere else but here. Thank you Overstock for another wonderful product!

I am happy with my purchase. I wanted something long enough to mount our TV over and I liked the idea of the media storage that this unit offers. The fireplace part is excellent. We have an outdoor wood stove that serves as our primary source of heat. We purchased this for the in-between temperatures when it is too cold for no heat, but too warm to start a fire and have it burn all day. It takes the edge off. We often put the fire light on without using the heat. It adds great ambiance! I have white bamboo flooring so I was afraid of this looking too yellow. It does have a creamy undertone, but I think it adds some warmth to the room.

When you buy something sight unseen online, you expect to take things that are not perfect with a grain of salt. I can honestly say this was one of the BEST purchases I've made online. I was more than pleasantly surprised by how solid the wood is. I also love the finish....it's not white-white...and its not yellow ivory...it's a creamy, slightlly distressed look. It's gorgeous. I have a 52" tv on top, and it fits perfectly....any bigger and I think it would start to extend on the sides wider than the fireplace itself. Two of us put it together...I see some people did it alone, and they have my complete respect...not that it was rocket science, but four hands are definitely better than two. The doors were a little tricky, but are even, and close nicely. I am not using the corner piece, so I left it off. I will say that the very tiny screws should have had holes pre-drilled, but we managed. We had no problem with the cam-locks. The fireplace is quiet,and I was nervous about the LED bulbs looking too "bluey-white", but they are warm and inviting. Overall, a very high-quality looking piece of furniture I will have for a long, long time. If I have to find one negative, it would be that the space for components is stingy It's only 5 inches -- so my cable box fit and fortunately I have a very, very slim DVD player. You have to put the components in from the back to utillize every bit of the 5 inches. Oh, I was missing one small piece which was a tiny block that the firebox sits on. Honestly, you don't need it. I called customer service and they sent the piece to me immediately. I get many compliments of this piece of furniture -- the price and quality are outstanding. Have some patience putting it together, and it's a winner.
Summer nights are ideal for hanging out on the patio, but you can still use your outdoor space when cooler temperatures hit by adding a fireplace. To get the same warmth of a brick-and-mortar fireplace without the commitment or cost to build, try using an indoor/outdoor fireplace . These portable fireplaces are often heated by gel fuel and provide the right amount of warmth for fall and spring weather.
