I had been searching for a smaller size (Narrow) little fireplace that would fit between two windows in my formal living room. My home is victorian so I wanted something to fit the style and age of the home. Most of the units I had found were narrow but very short, looking more like a toy that should be in a playhouse . This one though I wish was a bit taller looks like an actual firplace and is quite lovely. The details i.e rosettes, piping, wood carving and dental molding give it a classic look and absolutely LOVE the hidden storage compartments. Although listed as oak, it's a much richer color than the cheap looking light oak out there. It was very easy and quick to put together by myself,(clear instructions). Once I got it put together was so excited when I lit the gel fuel. Loved the crackling and warmth and LOVED the ambiance. There were however a few dings and scratches and the metal firebox instructions a bit off but it was pretty self explanatory. It looks great and I wish that I could afford another one to go in the same location (between the two windows) in my attached formal dining room. If I could I would definitely buy another one! :)
