Playing with Fire

Cool ways to add fire, or ice, to your decor.

Ice buckets are so 2013. Champagne and beer (yes, soft drinks, too) can be chilled inside Dedon’s Play table thanks to a built-in ice trough. But as seen in the pictures below the ice trough also doubles as a great mini fire feature, as long as you use candles rather than say smoldering logs, or for a fun floral display. dedon.de/en/

If you must play with fire, Sparks Modern Fires’ new red and stainless steel Cubes ($5,900 and $6,700, respectively) add instant gratification to your outdoor space. Inside, the company’s ultra-contemporary natural gas and propane ribbon fireplaces fit into walls and countertops. Please, no fake logs – that’s the reason former Washington, D.C. area homebuilder and company founder Tom Healy started a spark. “Those fake logs drove me crazy.” Instead, add glass, colored rocks or lava stones. sparksfires.com
