I bought this log because I didn't want to mess up my fireplace using a real fire. My friend had purchased the same log and paid $99.00 for it. At first I was terribly dissapointed because I couldn't get it into my fireplace with the grate. After I found that the grate was removable it sit on the fireplace floor very nicely. Makes the whole room look more cosy and the tealights give a wonderful warm glow. Will look wonderful around the holidays! Another great purchase from Overtock!
I am very pleased with this item! I've been using it between burning logs in my masonry fireplace, and I enjoy the ambience the tealights create nearly as I do a wood-burning fire...the craftsmanship on this item is nice, and displays well within the hearth (despite what others have said about it appearing "tacky"); I am into Interior Design and I do know tacky! I look forward to using this resin log in my fireplace (even more so!) when the warmer weather approaches, and am considering running some faux ivy vines around the grate it rests on to make it even more decorative and seasonal as well. Hopefully this item will come back into stock, for those of whom are awaiting its return! Enjoy!
You cant go wrong with this tealight holder. The logs are so realistic looking and it is absolutely beautiful when lit. A great alternative to relaxing ambience when you dont want the heat of a real fire. Definitely buy this item!!!!! I light mine every single day and every single night. The great part is, tealight candles are extremely inexpensive and can be purchased with fragrance which really enhances the use of this fireplace candleholder. Very safe if you have children too!!!!! Oh, JUST BUY IT!!!! You wont regret it!!!! :-)
This arrived and it took me a 1/2 hour to unwrap it ... lol. Nice that Overstock takes the time to pack the items they ship so they aren't damaged. With that said, it is so cool. I lit the candles as soon as I put it inside the fireplace. We have always burned wood in our gas fireplace & well, NOT ANYMORE!!! The logs are resin & look like wood ... pretty sure it fits MOST IF NOT ALL FIREPLACES. The sizing is great!!! I was tired of the mess & residue the smoke leaves throughout the house & thought this looked realistic enough to give it a chance. It's so UNIQUE & VERY PRETTY WITH THE TEA LIGHTS FLICKERING. IT WILL BE FUN TO USE MY SCENTED TEA LIGHTS. After seeing this on another website, I checked OVERSTOCK & THEY HAD IT FOR *** LESS!!! Loving Overstock MORE & MORE EACH DAY!!!
First of all, I received this product in a few days! Excellent delivery! When I opened the box I almost thought it was going to be too big for my fireplace, once I got it out of the box I tested the size and it was a PERFECT fit! The logs look authentic and when the candles are lit and the lights are out, it's so elegant and relaxing. I have received so many compliments on this piece. During the day when the candles are not lit, people think it's real wood in my fireplace! THANK YOU OVERSTOCK!!!!! :)
I love it! It just arrived quickly and was packaged well. I will more than likely be ordering one for my brothers new house warming gift since we live in texas and don't use our fireplaces much. This will add much ambiance! I put mine in my patio fireplace and it fit perfect with the grate. In front of My inside fireplace I put the black scroll standing tealight set that is also sold on this website and I love them both. (It came with gas logs so I didn't want to disturb them but at the same time we really won't get much use so the tealights are a great choice and they won't heat up the house.
If you can't have a fireplace or you just don't like a real fireplace, this is a great alternative. It's very unique. Was worried about safety of putting real burning tea lights in it (vs. battery tea lights) but works very well without any safety concerns. Only thing is that $** is a lot of money for it so not sure about value for money.
This log set is very attractive with the tea lights it comes with, but they are consumable. I had some some battery operated tea lights which fit perfectly and twinkle. I find this much easier and the look is also relaxing like the candles. I also like it because it is lightweight as opposed to using real logs.
I was a bit reluctant to order something of this nature, but gave it a try and was never so pleased! The logs look amazing and fit to a tee in the fireplace. Just the right size and color! There is nothing cheap looking about them! I highly recommend these logs for those of you who don't have a working fireplace, but need a filler and a warm and interesting appearance.
I was pleasantly surprised when I received this and used it for the first time. It not only provides the ambience I was seeking, but the fragrance that permeates from the scented tealights in my home is an added plus to this product. I am glad I made this purchase.
It is true it doesn't look "real", but neither does the gas log insert in my other fireplace. But that's fine because I don't intend to use this fireplace and no longer want the hassle or mess that real wood brings. And I don't want the heat from a real fire because the fireplace is right next to dining room table. This tealight log creates a wonderful ambience and the glow of real flame with the tealights. Perfect for what I want.
Like some of the other reviewers, I was skeptical that this would look that great in my fireplace, but I wanted something in there that was different. I can't use my fireplace but wanted a nice glow coming from it. Well, when this arrived, I took it out of the box and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it looked. It looks even better in the fireplace all lit up with tea lights. Gives off a beautiful glow and does not look cheesy at all. Very pretty! I am really happy with this purchase!

This is an excellent piece for my fireplace. I live in Houston, where it is warm most of the time. This allows me to use my fireplace at any time, without creating heat, and provides great ambiance. I would recommend to anyone.

The tealight log is a sweet way to use the fireplace without using the fireplace. I love having a fire, but my fireplace is quite inefficient and so we usually only burn it when it is quite temperate outside, usually spring or fall-- so that losing all that heat up the chimney doesn't cost me an arm and a leg. Then we clean out the fireplace for the winter and burn this tealight log in the winter when we are wanting a nice fire. Doesn't give off the radiant heat, but sets a very nice mood.
